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. 3 hours and 15 minutes paper Section 1 | Multiple Choice | 55 questions Section 2 | Short Answer | 3 questions
AP Computer Science Principles is an introductory college-level computing course that introduces students to the breadth of the field of computer science.
Students learn to design and evaluate solutions and to apply computer science to solve problems through the development of algorithms and programs. They incorporate abstraction into programs and use data to discover new knowledge. Students also explain how computing innovations and computing systems—including the internet—work, explore their potential impacts, and contribute to a computing culture that is collaborative and ethical.
