About AP Exams

AP exams are not just for those taking AP courses anymore.In fact, many top private schools have switched away from AP curriculum, but still teach content that prepares students for the AP exams.  Also, some intrepid students self study AP course content and then take AP exams without ever having taken the class! AP exams are always given in May. Students may take whichever AP exams they want, and may retake exams in subsequent years (however it is uncommon to do this). During one testing period, students may take as many AP exams as they can fit into their schedules. Students should only take AP exams when they are very familiar with the content. Most AP exams consist of both a multiple-choice and a free-response section. The free-response section is usually in the form of an essay, but could also be a written solution or a spoken response.

About AP Scoring and Credit

AP scoring is on a 1-5 scale. Typically, scores of 4-5 earn college credit, and provide strong evidence of academic excellence to college admission officials. Among top colleges, neither Brown nor Dartmouth offers credit for AP courses or tests, however even for these colleges, high scoring AP exams are very helpful in admissions. Most other colleges offer credit for scores of 4 or 5. Many other colleges, including Johns Hopkins and UC Berkeley, may offer credit for scores of 3, 4, or 5. MIT only grants credit for scores of 5 and only on some AP Tests. As with SAT and ACT tests, you are allowed to withhold AP scores that you feel will not help you, and may actually hurt you, in admission. However, unlike ACT or SAT, the next time you can take AP exams is during the next May testing cycle, a year removed from when you took the course.  Additional studying will usually be necessary.

NC Global AP Tutoring and Test Prep

NC Global has expert AP exam tutors who are qualified not only to teach AP test prep, but also to teach the AP courses themselves. Tutoring can be short-term for the exam, long-term to provide assistance with AP (or other college-level) courses you are taking in school, or yearlong to teach you the entire course as a self-study and prepare you for the exam in May. Tutoring for AP exams typically begins in March or early April and extends up to the day of the test. AP Subjects include:
