Oct 16, 2015 03:29PM ● Published by Steven Jack

Seventy-nine students at Oswego High School (OHS) and 68 students at Oswego East High School (OEHS) have earned AP Scholarship Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP exams. About 20 percent of the 2.1 million students worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
 
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP exams.

About the exam
 
Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,600 colleges and universities annually receive AP scores.

Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
