Advantages of taking AP exams:
- It gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credit. In order to graduate from a college or university, a certain number of college credits must be obtained. Going into college with credits already under a student’s belt is a great way to put them ahead and possibly speed up the time frame in which they hope to graduate.
- It allows students to skip some 101 classes. Depending on the AP course(s) and exam(s) taken, incoming freshmen with AP credits may be eligible to go straight into their core classes instead of relearning subjects already taken in high school.
- AP credits are impressive to colleges and universities. Nothing demonstrates how serious a student is about their college career than by having AP scores and credits completed during high school. Many colleges specifically look for candidates with these types of academic accomplishments.
- It better prepares students for college life. Going from high school to college is culture shock enough but being exposed to AP courses and exams is a fitting way to introduce students to this next phase in their lives.
