College Board (AP, PSAT, SAT)

Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

Post

The College Board is the organization that produces the Advanced Placement program (in addition to the SAT and PSAT).

The Advanced Placement (AP) program enables high school students to pursue college-level studies, with your score on the AP exam possibly earning college credit (the specific requirements vary for each college), and possibly earning you a higher placement in courses when you enroll in college.

West Campus offers the following AP courses:

PSAT and National Merit Scholar

Post

The PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. PSAT scores are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships.

The total score is the sum of the two section scores; its range is 320–1520. Your students receive scores in the range of 160–760 for each of two sections. The Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section score combines the scores for the Reading Test and the Writing and Language Test.
