Confidence: AP helps you gain confidence in your ability to tackle academic challenges that you may not have thought possible. Earn AP Scholar Awards the College Board recognizes high school students who have demonstrated exemplary college-level achievement with AP Scholar Awards. While there is no monetary award from the College Board, AP Scholars Awards further strengthen your college admissions portfolio. AP Exam questions are written and scored by college faculty, so, by taking AP Exams, you’ll learn what to expect in a college-level exam. Success in AP leads to success in college; performing well on an AP Exam means more than just the successful completion of a course; it is the gateway to success in college. Ghosh Incentive Program – helps reduce the cost of the exam
