The level of knowledge required for an AP test is not acquired without rigorous preparation. As a result, it is best to take AP subject preparation seriously and over a long period of time. The benefits of high AP scores (4 or 5) are many: greater chances of admission, college credits and competitive subject knowledge that befits college level work.
AP COURSE PREPARATION DUBAI
The AP tests are designed to test students a number of academic areas – Arts, English, History and Social Studies, Math and Computer Science, Sciences, World language and Cultures. The purpose behind these tests is to assess the academic potential of the student for college-level courses. As such, the APs require rigorous training and preparation and once that is done, test-takers are well informed about the subject of study.
Each AP test is scored on a range of 1 to 5, with each score signifying a particular level of academic efficiency.
- 5: Extremely Well Qualified.
- 4: Well Qualified.
- 3: Qualified.
- 2: Possibly Qualified.
- 1: No recommendation.
- These scores from 1-5 are scaled scores calculated from raw scores (number of questions correct in the exam).
- A score above or equal to 3 is considered Pass. However, different colleges have different admission eligibility standards and so the score of the AP that can earn a credit varies.
- There are no deductions for incorrect or blank answers, so your multiple -choice raw score is simply the number of questions you get correct.
