When do you know you’re ready to study? – The Associated Press
(AP) — If you want to get ready to take your first AP courses and become an AP student, you have two months to get your ducks in a row.
That’s according to the American Council on Education.
The group said students should have a goal of finishing at least one course and two classes by September 2019.
And students should complete the AP classes in six months, starting in November 2019.
They’re going to have to learn to be a team, learn to deal with deadlines, deal with stress, have time for the little things and really work hard,” said David Lipscomb, the group’s president and CEO.
Lipscomb said AP students should be prepared to study for two- or three-quarter courses that cover topics like reading and writing, but not AP courses that require students to pass a test to graduate.
AP is in the midst of a major push to increase its math and sciences offerings. “
There are other schools that are starting to offer those classes, but we don’t think that is necessary to get the degree,” Lipscom said.
AP is in the midst of a major push to increase its math and sciences offerings.
Its freshman classes will increase from 20 to 30, and its graduate classes will double from 10 to 20.
Students who are looking to become AP graduates will be eligible for a new program that will be open to students who were already enrolled at a local college or university.
Some students will be able to choose to take AP courses in two-quarter or three quarter courses that are designed for students with low test scores.
