Why Take Exams in AP courses?

Alief pays for all AP exams, so there is no cost to you as the student!

Earning a 3, 4, or 5 on exams means colleges will accept your exam score for college credit

All scores are self-report, so if you control who sees your scores and which colleges to which you submit your scores. It is not all or nothing, you choose what you want to report from your high school advanced placement career.

You're putting in the work, take a chance on yourself! Prepare all year through learning the skills and content for your course and go in to the exam in May with confidence.
