Frequently Asked Questions


Should I take an AP course and risk getting a lower grade?


The grade you receive may be as good or better than one you would have earned in an honors course, because the weight given to grades in AP courses compensates for the increased difficulty. Secondly, colleges know that all courses are not equal. Their evaluation of student grades focuses as much on the quality of the courses as the grades received. Finally, an AP course gives you an opportunity to learn a subject in great depth and helps you develop skills that will be critically important to successful study in college.


What do I need to succeed in AP?


You need to be willing and able. "Willing" mean motivated to study and learn on the college level. If you are committed to participating actively in an AP class and doing the out-of-class assignments, you have met a major prerequisite for success.
