Advanced Placement Tests begin two months from today, March 1st. See the College Board’s AP schedule here. Students typically take 8 – 10 weeks to study for the exam, so it is go-time for students who are intentional about earning scores that will provide college credits and show academic achievement on college applications.
We are pleased to announce that our Arbor Bridge tutoring partnership provides CPC students with a free March AP tutoring session to get organized and understand what is required to prepare. Since 2019, 77% of Arbor Bridge AP students have earned a four or a five on their AP Exams.
Below are some frequently asked questions that may help. Click the arrows to reveal answers.
How do I register for my free Arbor Bridge AP tutoring session?
What type of scores do I need for college credit?
Can earning strong scores save me money?
Depending on the minimum scores accepted, a student could find savings in the cost of required credits. For example, a MD resident may pay $427 a credit for in-state tuition and over $1,000 a credit for a non-resident state flagship university.
Do I report my AP scores on my college application?
It depends on your score. You can self-report your AP scores on most college applications. We will review your scores and school list to decide for which schools your scores will improve your academic profile. Strong scores can validate the grades on your transcript, set you apart from the crowd and eliminate any concern of grade inflation.
Do I have to take the AP test for my course to appear on my high school transcript?
No, the AP score is separate from your transcript and your grade in the course.
What is an AP Scholar?
The basic AP Scholar award is given to students who score at least a three on at least three AP tests. However, additional awards are granted to students taking more AP tests and scoring higher.
How can I tell if my high school class adequately prepares me for the test?
Is your teacher taking the time to help you identify how, when, and where to study best and map out a study plan? Are you working on free-response questions and practice exams as part of the curriculum?
We are standing by to help as you have questions preparing for your spring exams.
