AP: The Benefits
- Students learn rigorous college-level content and skills.
- 85％ of U.S. universities state that they favor students with AP courses over students without any AP classes.
- Top U.S. universities admit more AP students than non-AP students nationwide.
- AP courses challenge students to work and participate at a higher level.
- AP courses give students the opportunities to explore topics in depth.
- Most universities will grant credit based on a 3 or higher on an AP Exam. This is a huge benefit for students as they can take advanced classes earlier.
- Taking an AP course helps students build critical thinking skills, confidence, and the essential time management and study skills needed for college success.
- Nationally, research shows that students who score a 3 or higher typically have higher Grade Point Averages in university.
“Our AP Program is excellent! I gained so much studying at BNDS these three years, not just in terms of acquiring knowledge but also in terms of learning from my teachers. Many of my teachers help us with problems after class and answer basically any question we might have. Compared to other Chinese students who did the Gaokao, we’re better prepared for a college life abroad. It’s relatively easier for us to adapt to academics in college since we took most classes in English. Through these three years, I was exposed to a lot of western cultures and ideas and, being in classes taught by different teachers, I learnt to better understand different people. Many of the abilities that I gradually picked up in high school at BNDS, such as reading difficult essays, learning economic thinking and writing papers, became indispensable here at college. I am truly grateful to my teachers.” – Katherine He, Class of 2015, University of Chicago.
