AP Exams Come to HHS

Sabrina Mohsin, Staff Writer

AP tests are here. By taking an Advanced Placement class, students are better prepared for college and are given an opportunity to obtain college credits. A student will earn a score of 1 to 5 on the test. A score of 3 and above is a passing score, but a student can receive college credit based only on the criteria of the college. One college may give a student college credit if he or she receives a 3 while another college may give a student college credit only if he or she receives a 5.

There are 34 AP courses offered to high school students. HHS offers eight AP classes: AP Environmental, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB, AP English Literature and Composition, AP History, AP Biology, AP Physics, and AP English Language and Composition. During each exam, a proctor will be available and students will be given a 5 minute break. The school library and band room will be closed during the AP exam weeks because exams will take place in these rooms.
