What is Advanced Placement (AP)?
Advanced Placement (AP) exams allow high school students who excel on these exams the opportunity to gain university credits* while still in high school. These exams are written in May and are usually 2-3 hours in length. Any student who pays the examination fee may write an AP exam, and those students who take AP courses are usually better prepared. Students taking AP courses in HDSB will be assessed and evaluated on the Ontario Curriculum; the AP curriculum is built into the course as an enhancement to the Ontario Curriculum.
