Why do we take AP program? Let's start by understanding what an AP program is.
The AP program, or Advanced Placement program, is an educational program in the United States and Canada that offers college-level courses to high school students. It is administered by the College Board, the same organization that administers the SAT exams.

The AP program provides students with an opportunity to challenge themselves academically and potentially earn college credit while still in high school. The courses are designed to be rigorous and cover the material that is typically taught in introductory college-level courses. The curriculum is standardized across schools, ensuring that students receive a consistent educational experience.

At the end of an AP course, students have the option to take an AP exam in that subject. These exams are typically administered in May of each year and are graded on a scale of 1 to 5. Many colleges and universities in the United States grant credit or advanced placement to students who earn a certain score on the AP exams, allowing them to skip introductory courses and potentially graduate earlier or pursue more advanced coursework.

The AP program offers a wide range of subjects, including mathematics, sciences, social sciences, humanities, and languages. Students can choose which AP courses to take based on their interests and future educational goals. Participating in the AP program can demonstrate to colleges that a student has taken challenging coursework and is prepared for the demands of higher education.
