NJ Ranks in Top 10 in the Nation for AP Exam Scores

When it comes to Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores, New Jersey high schoolers are showing their smarts, ranking among the top 10 in the nation.

According to the College Board’s report, 23.6% of students in the Class of 2013 scored a 3 or higher on an AP exam, the 10th highest percentage nationwide.

Maryland took the top spot, followed by Connecticut, Virginia, Massachusetts, Florida, California, New York, Utah, and Colorado.

Even better, NJ has the highest percentage in the nation (23.4%) of test takers scoring a 5 on an exam, and the lowest percentage (11.1%) of testers scoring a 1.

So…basically, we’re awesome at AP tests.

AP classes and exams are an excellent way to earn college credits. Back in ’03 I was able to earn 12 credits and completely satisfy my college’s foreign language requirement by taking the AP Spanish language test. (I wasn’t so lucky with English language or U.S. History. womp womp.)

Since the cost of college doesn’t seem to be decreasing any time soon, why not get as many advance credits as you can!
