Benefits of AP courses
- If a student finishes an AP course and scores more than 3/5 on the AP exam, the result can be shown in the reports. For ADP, AP courses will be credited if the result is positive and can contribute towards the final GPA.
- In case that student also wishes to apply to US colleges, those AP courses’ credits will also be counted towards the intro courses during the freshman year. Thus, that student can reduce the amount of workload required for graduation, effectively saving time for other favorite courses, or simply graduating sooner.
- Successfully finishing a number of AP courses and consistently getting a decent score on the AP exams will impress the college admission team, and increase your chance of getting admitted or awarded a scholarship.
- Refine the students’ critical thinking, analysis, and evaluation skills.
