Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous, college-level courses and assessments offered in US high schools. Administered by the College Board, they have now replaced the SAT Subject Tests for college applications. Doing well on AP courses can translate to college credit in US and Canadian universities.
AP courses are structured to be self-study material with a standardized exam offered once a year. As such many high schools might not offer the correct guidance or teaching for AP courses.
AP courses are offered all throughout high school and as such can be taken by students aged 15-18 through self-study or proper classes.
The AP courses can be taken as a part-time option along with other subjects. Students can also take a combination of levels at CGA.
All exams are externally offered during a two-week period in May and can be taken at designated centers. 2 hours 30 minutes paper Section 1 | Multiple Choice | 55 questions Section 2 | Free Response | 4 questions
The course introduces students to the rich diversity of political life outside the United States. The course uses a comparative approach to examine the political structures; policies; and political, economic, and social challenges of six selected countries: China, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, and the United Kingdom. Students compare the effectiveness of approaches to many global issues by examining how different governments solve similar problems. They will also engage in disciplinary practices that require them to read and interpret data, make comparisons and applications, and develop evidence-based arguments.
