Benefits of Advanced Placement

  • Students get a head start on the work they will encounter in university
  • Successful completion of exams earns students advanced placement and/or credit in university
  • Exams are recognized by universities throughout Canada, United States and Europe
  • All universities in Ontario accept Advanced Placement exams. Visit College Board AP website​ for details.
  • AP marks are entered on a separate transcript by the Collegeboard and are only sent to universities at the student’s discretion.  Students can choose to forward AP marks for credit, delete AP marks from their transcript or even re-do AP exams if they are still in high school
Research show that:
  • ​AP students are more likely to take additional university courses within the discipline of their AP coursework
  • AP students are more likely to maintain a high grade point average and graduate from university with honours than their university classmates of similar ability
  • AP students who receive university credit or advanced placement into higher level university courses perform better than the non-AP students who have taken the introductory university courses
