AP (Advanced Placement) exams provide students an opportunity to demonstrate their capability to take college level courses in high school. There are 34 AP courses in total. Each of the 34 exams has its own unique requirement; however, almost all of the exams have several things in common.
Most exams are two to three hours in duration. Be prepared to tackle a challenging exam with limited breaks. Eat a good breakfast and, if you are taking more than one exam on the same day, make sure you have lunch and snacks to keep you going.
The first part of the exam usually consists of multiple choice questions. You will choose one of four or five answer choices for each question and use a pencil to bubble in your choice on your AP answer sheet. Your total exam score on the multiple choice section is based only on the number of questions answered correctly. You won’t receive or lose points for incorrect answers or unanswered questions.
The second part of the exam usually consists of free response questions that require you to generate your own responses. Depending on the exam, your responses could be in the form of an essay, a solution to a problem, a spoken response and more. In most cases, you’ll be writing your response in pen in the free response exam booklet.

Subject SAT Tests are the only national admissions tests that enable students to showcase their achievements and interests. This provides the student with an opportunity to focus on what makes him or her uniquely qualified and to put his or her best foot forward.
Some colleges require or recommend one or more Subject SAT Tests as part of the application process. This may be especially true if you are interested in a specific major or program of study. Your application will also stand out to colleges that don’t require recommended Subject SAT Tests. By taking one or more Subject SAT Tests, you have an opportunity to differentiate yourself and provide a comprehensive picture of your academic abilities and interests. If you are doing well in these courses or taking advanced level courses (e.g., honors, dual enrollment, Advanced Placement, IB), Subject SAT Tests are an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your understanding of the subject area.
