The College Board and AP in India

Whether you’re interested in attending a university in India or studying abroad, the College Board can help you. We are a mission-driven, not-for-profit global organization committed to connecting students to college opportunity and success. Our programs like the SAT, Advanced Placement (AP), Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), and ReadiStep can help prepare students for the academic rigors of higher education.

AP is currently offered in various high schools throughout India. In 2012, the College Board’s AP Program expanded AP Exam administration to designated test centers throughout India so that all students had the opportunity to register for AP Exams.

About AP

Advanced Placement (AP) is an academic program comprising university-level courses and exams that students can take while in high school to prepare for university-level study. Each AP course culminates in an AP Exam, which students take to demonstrate university-level knowledge, skills and abilities learned during the AP course.

Why take AP?

  • Most four-year universities and colleges in the U.S. accept qualifying AP Exam scores for college credit and advanced placement. Earning credit and/or advanced placement gives students the flexibility to graduate early, save tuition money, pursue a double major, skip introductory courses or gain time for valuable internships.
  • Standardized and globally recognized programs such as AP give Indian students the opport unity to showcase their academic strengths to thousands of colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Singapore, Australia and other countries.
  • For more than 50 years, AP has helped students around the world achieve their dream of university study. Learn more about AP.

Exam Preparation

AP Exams consist of multiple-choice questions and free-response (essay) prompts. See Preparing for AP for released exam questions, study tips and resources available for free and for purchase.

You may find it helpful to thoroughly review the AP Course Description for the subject(s) you’re considering. Each AP Course Description outlines in detail the topics covered in the curriculum framework and the exam structure.

While it is not mandatory, the best preparation for AP Exams is to take the related AP course in secondary school. The AP Course Ledger provides a list of schools currently offering approved AP courses, as well as approved online AP courses — just select your country or enter the keyword "online" to search. If your school does not yet offer the AP Program, ask your teacher or an administrator to contact AP at Ljain-NONEMP@collegeboard.org.

Read about Exam Day Policies and next steps before the exam.

AP Exam Scores

Scores are released in July of the year in which you take the exam. Students will receive AP score reports online only. Your designated high school and the college or university you designate on your answer sheet will also receive official score reports in July. Learn more about AP Scores.

AP Exam scores are reported on a five-point scale, with 5 being the highest score. In order to earn university credit or advanced placement, a score of 3 or above on a scale of 5 is expected. Each university determines its own AP acceptance and credit policy.

To view an AP policy, search for an institution.

What if my score is lower than I had hoped?

Remember that every university determines which AP scores it will accept for credit or placement, so be sure to verify the institution's AP policy first. The College Board’s student site includes AP recognition policies for U.S. institutions and for international universities. The preparation for an AP Exam is deeply beneficial since through AP you develop deep conceptual knowledge and subject-specific skills you can use at university. Research shows that students with an AP score of 1 or 2 tend to outperform students with no AP scores, except in terms of first-year university grade point average. As an option, some students choose to retake an AP Exam the following May.
