AP Courses at Option, DUBAI

 

The AP tests are designed to test students in a number of academic areas – Arts, English, History and Social Studies, Math and Computer Science, Sciences, World language and Cultures. The purpose behind these tests is to assess the academic potential of the student for college-level courses. As such, the APs require rigorous training and preparation and once that is done, test-takers are well informed about the subject of study.

Each AP test is scored on a range of 1 to 5, with each score signifying a particular level of academic efficiency.

5: Extremely Well Qualified.

4: Well Qualified.

3: Qualified.

2: Possibly Qualified.

1: No recommendation.

These scores from 1-5 are scaled scores calculated from raw scores (number of questions correct in the exam).A score above or equal to 3 is considered Pass. However, different colleges have different admission eligibility standards and so the score of the AP that can earn a credit varies.
