Pathway 1: Advanced Placement (AP) Program*
Students can start earning college credits, starting from Grade 9, in the subjects they are best at. For students serious about further studies in the United States, obtaining AP college credits can be a great way to gain entry into some of the most prestigious colleges, and can potentially lead to high scholarship offers and waivers of the first year of studies, a significant saving for parents.
The Advanced Placement Program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue university-level studies while still in high school, with the opportunity to earn credit (points toward an undergraduate degree) or advanced placement (the opportunity to skip an introductory level university course).
AP is recognized in the admissions process by more than 4,000 universities worldwide and outside the US. Over 600 universities in more than 60 countries recognize qualifying AP Exam scores.
AP courses and exams are available in secondary schools and measure mastery of university-level course content. The program allows students to develop a global perspective, as well as skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving. AP is recognized as a highly desirable academic credential around the globe.
