Advanced Placement examinations are offered by the College Board and are taken each May by students to pursue the university course of their choice while studying in high school. The College Board was established in the year 1990. The exam gives students in India an opportunity to showcase their academic strengths to thousands of universities in the U.S. and around the world.
The Advanced Placement® Program (AP) offers university-level courses and exams that can be taken while studying in secondary school. If a school doesn't offer AP courses, the exam can be taken at a local test center.
Qualifying AP shows that you’ve mastered university-level knowledge and skills while studying in high school. Nearly all universities in the U.S., as well as many in Canada, recognize AP exam scores of 3 or higher on a scale of 5. There are many universities in 70 countries and territories throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America that consider AP toward admissions and recognize AP as a standardized measure of academic achievement.
As per data available, more than 2.2 million students took over 4.5 million AP exams worldwide and sent scores to over 3,000 universities in more than 60 countries.
