Why Would I Want to Take the AP Exams?

At some point during the year, every AP student asks the ultimate question: Why am I taking this exam?

Good question. Why put yourself through a year of intensive study, pressure, stress, and preparation? To be honest, only you can answer that question. Over the years, our students have indicated to us that there are several prime reasons why they were willing to take the risk and to put in the effort:

For personal satisfaction

To compare themselves with other students across the nation

Because colleges look favorably on the applications of students who elect to enroll in AP courses

To receive college credit or advanced standing at their colleges or universities

Because they love the subject

So that their families will really be proud of them
