Tip: Review our detailed primer on the AdvancedPlacement (AP) program.
Recognizing that many students in US high schools are gifted and talented but are not challenged enough in their high schools, the College Board decided to roll out AP courses for high school students to complete before they even enter college. The best incentive for such students was that by passing an exam conducted by the College Board after paying a small fee, they would earn credit hours that would directly transfer to the college that they would enter. These students could then either spend less to complete their required 120 credits degree by taking fewer college credit hour classes, or, for the same money, take additional courses and graduate with a double major (which requires 140-150 credit hours).
Our promise is to empower you with as much high-quality, ethical and free advice as is possible via this website. But parents and students often ask us if they can engage with us for individual counseling sessions.
Individual counseling is part of the Premium Offering of Rao Advisors and involves a fee. Please contact us for more information.
