Advanced Placement

What is Advanced Placement (AP)

Nexus International School Malaysia is one of the centres for the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam, which offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses and exams in high school and earn college credit, advanced placement or both at many colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world.

AP courses are usually comparable to first-year college courses, having AP classes on a candidate’s transcript demonstrates to universities that the candidate has experience with the academic rigour of college classes.

However there is no age limit set to sit for this exam as long as the learner is well prepared.
