How to find the best tutors to help with AP test prep

As your child enters their Junior or Senior Year of High School, their school may invite them to take Advanced Placement (AP) classes. These are college-level classes taken during high school, and at the end of the year-long course, students take an exam for potential college credit. Students share their scores with the college they decide to attend. If their score is high enough, it means they don’t have to earn those credits in college. For example, suppose your child does well on their AP English Literature exam. In that case, they can be excused from their introductory English Literature class during their first year of college because their AP class was equivalent to those credits.

Doing well on an AP exam can save your child (and you) valuable time and money in college. By earning AP credits for college classes, students can skip the sometimes dull prerequisites and right away dive into courses connected to their major. However, AP exams are challenging, and all students can benefit from additional studying. If your child is seeking AP Test Prep, GoStudent is the best AP test tutoring for every subject.

How do students take AP courses?

Most high schools offer some AP courses, though the exact courses offered to students vary from school to school. There are 38 possible AP courses total across all subject areas. Many popular courses offered include AP American History, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, and AP English Literature. Students can take an AP exam in a subject not offered by their school, but they will have to register independently.

Though the College Board administers AP courses and AP exams, there are no official prerequisites to take an AP course. It’s up to schools to choose how to let students into AP courses. For example, many schools only open them up to students already taking honors courses in the relevant subject or require students to take an exam to assess readiness for AP.

Though AP courses have a specific curriculum, students take AP classes the same way they take any other high school classes. Students register for their AP course through their school and need to register online at the College Board website to take the exam. Exams do cost a fee paid directly to your student’s school. Fee waivers are available for qualified students.

How do students take the AP Exam?

The AP exams are offered on set days and times during the first two weeks of May. Students can only take an exam once, and it must be on the allotted date/time. If a student has two exams scheduled for the same time, they must speak with their school to determine an alternate schedule. Accommodations are available for students with disabilities, pending approval from the College Board.

Each of the 38 AP exams is unique. However, there are some commonalities across most of the exams. The exams are broken into two parts: multiple-choice and free-response. Free-response can be an essay, a solution to a problem (common in math exams), or a spoken response (typical in language exams).

How are AP Exams scored?

AP Exams are scored on a scale of 1 through 5. These scores are used to determine college readiness in that subject area.

AP exam equivalents

These scores are determined by combining the total scores from the multiple-choice and free-response sections to form a composite score. Then, that composite score is translated into a 5-point scale using statistical processes to ensure scores reflect the same level of achievement year to year.

Scores are sent to the student, their school and school district, and any colleges or universities they designated when they registered for the exam. Students can also get additional score reports for a fee.

Individual colleges and universities choose what scores they will accept for college credit. Most will take a 4 or 5, but some very competitive schools may only allow a 5. The college of your choice can provide further insight.
