Hi everyone, my name is Pooja and I am an advisor at UniRely Today, I am gonna be talking about the advanced placement exams, commonly known as the APs. Advanced placement exams are extensive, individualized exams offered by the College Board in over 30 subjects across seven disciplines. They cover introductory college level material. These exams are scored on a scale of 1-5 and take place only once a year in May. You can find a full list of all the subjects offered on the official College Board website. AP exams help universities place students from different countries on the same scale. They are not required by all universities, however taking them helps with admissions as well as increases chances of scholarship. Interestingly, these exams can also help you once you are in college You may receive college credit and even graduate early! There is no limit to the number of APs you can take but we recommend that you take atleast two. To give you some perspective students applying to Ivy League colleges even take up to five AP exams. To register and know more about the APs, you can visit the official College Board website. We hope you found this video helpful.
