Advanced Placement Programmes

Before heading to USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore or Germany for undergraduate studies learn about the Advanced Placement ( AP ) programme by College Board, the same organisation that administers the SAT ( Scholastic Aptitude Test ) test.

AP allows students to take university – level courses in their high schools. With AP, students can earn university credits, stand out in the admission process and get advanced placements. Most universities in USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand and in more than 60 other countries give students credits, advanced placements or both on the basis of the AP exam scores.

By entering the university with AP credits students graduate up to a year earlier, and thus save time and money ( up to ₹ 25 lakh ). They have the time to move into upper level courses and pursue a double – major. Students also increase their chances of getting scholarships, and get admission to the most selected universities in the world.

AP offers 34 courses to choose from which includes Art, History, Economics, Psychology and Spanish Language and Culture. Each May, more than 19 lakhs students from Class X, XI and XII plan to pursue studies in US / Canada / UK / Australia and they take more than 34 lakhs AP exams. Now students in Kolkata have the same opportunity.

“One of the best standard predictors of academic success at Harvard is performance on Advanced Placement Examinations,” said William R Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions, Harvard University.

AP Guru, the first and only College Board approved educational institute in India, offer AP coaching open to all students and have tied up with schools in Mumbai, Ahmadabad and Delhi to facilitate AP exams.

Rishabh Singhania, partner at AP Guru Kolkata says, “The mission of AP Guru is to provide high quality education through a combination of leading faculty and innovative use of technology.”
