Advanced Placement Test Dates

Advanced Placement courses are taken by students who wish to learn about the level of the programs they will deal with at a college level. Most universities provide students with extra credit if they have completed AP courses and though AP examinations do not have a pass or fail grade, educational institutions will have a score requirement to grant extra credit.

Depending on the field the candidate wants to study, students will be able to take multiple AP courses along with their high school education. Taking these college-level examinations will increase the chances of getting admission for candidates since it will prove that the student is capable of tackling college-level education even alongside their high school life.
