Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered by high schools in a variety of different areas, with AP exams administered every May. Exams are graded on a scale of 1–5, with anything 3 or above considered passing. While 3 is considered passing, not all colleges give credit for scores of 3 in all AP classes. AP scores can be used for college credit or placement purposes. Check individual college websites to see their requirements for credit and placement.
