AP Exams Arrive Early in 2023
The College Board confirmed that AP exams will be administered. Your eyes and memory are not deceiving you. This is significantly earlier than in years past. Consequently, it is even more imperative for you to get started on your plans to prepare for the AP exams as soon as possible.
Week 1 of the AP Exam Schedule 2023
In particular, historically popular AP exams like Chemistry, Spanish Literature, English Literature, and Computer Science fall in the first three days of the month of May. US History, Microeconomics, and European History round out the list of popular exams administered in the first week. Students taking AP classes in these topics may have amazing teachers at school, but these are extremely challenging courses. Often, students like you can benefit from both additional help on homework & classwork and on building skills to perform better on the exam.
Too often, though, students wait until the last moment to prepare for an exam of the scope and size of an AP. Good study skills dictate that you start your exam preparations as early as possible to maximize your efforts. Rather than cram for an AP exam, spread out your study schedule. Additionally, a qualified AP tutor can make all the difference between a good result and a great result.
AP Exam Scoring
Remember, AP exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Generally AP exams include both a multiple choice section and several essays or writing samples. Some AP programs, like Art or Computer Science can substitute a practical project instead of a writing sample. In order to score a 5 on an AP exam, you need to not only know the raw information from your class, but how to deal with both multiple choice questions and essay prompts.
Week 2 of the AP Exam Schedule 2023
The second week of the 2023 AP schedule is front-loaded with some of the most popular and challenging exams. Monday the 8th begins with the Calculus exams, followed by English Language & Composition on Tuesday. Wednesday the 10th includes both the Physics C exams and Biology. The week winds up with the Physics 1 & 2 exams, World History, and Latin.
Many high performing students take multiple AP courses junior and senior years. In order to be the most prepared you can be, make sure you take advantage of all the available resources at your disposal. This might include study guides, prep books, and a highly qualified AP tutor.
