AP Exams

The last date for registration is 10 March 2024

AP®: Advanced Placement Program® Exams

College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® is recognized by universities around the world as a standard of academic excellence.  Since 1955, the AP® Program has enabled millions of students to take U.S. university undergraduate-level courses and earn undergraduate degree credit, advanced placement, or both while still in high school/secondary school.

Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States and Canada — as well as more than 700 universities worldwide — consider AP Exam scores for admission, and grant credit and placement for qualifying AP Exam scores. Most universities also acknowledge course participation, regardless of AP score, favourably in the admission process.

AP Exams are administered once every year during the first two-three weeks of May. Registration in the Fall prior to the testing year is strongly recommended to ensure students have time to prepare.
