Advanced Placement (AP) courses are college-level courses offered in US high schools. Administered by the College Board, they have now replaced the SAT Subject Tests for college applications. Depending on the score you receive (1-5), your goal university may offer you college credit which can set you up early for particular credit-related benefits.
While many schools offer Honors courses in addition to their standard curriculum, APs are becoming increasingly common because of the potential that comes with receiving top scores on the exams. Similar to Honors, AP courses count towards your weighted GPA, but unlike Honors, APs have a standardized exam at the end of the course.
Earning top scores in an AP course is the best way to demonstrate your academic ability to colleges.
APs allow students to earn college credit and pursue more advanced courses.
