The Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer qualified students the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Many colleges and universities in the US and Canada consider students who do the AP Exams with a grade of 3 or above.

UK universities view exam results as similar to British A-level results. Students who succeed on three or more AP exams are well placed for entry into UK universities.
