Recognition of Advanced Placement Examinations
Advanced Placement (AP) Exams are international field exams at the first-year level of an American university, valid worldwide. The exams are organized by the American College Board every May and more than two million of students from the whole world take them. Universities all around the world recognize the AP exams in their admission.
The College Board commissioned CTM – which got the status of a so-called designated organization – with the organization of the AP exams by means of cooperating schools. Unicorn College became one of the schools this year.
CTM students do really well in the AP exams. In 2017, their average score was 4.26 while a global average is 2.89 (the best score is 5). However, according to students, parents and their teachers, such results would be impossible without completing the CTM Online course.
Students can enrol for the AP exam by means of CTM after completing the CTM Online courses or after studying individually or at their respective schools. The registration is open to students from any country.
More information on how to take the exam may be found on the CTM website here.
