In order to save time and money by earning college credits, students will be taking AP exams which will ultimately decide the placement of their courses in college. Receiving a good score on the AP tests means avoiding repetitive class subjects and finishing college earlier.
Senior Daniel Jeong, who will be taking five AP exams over the course of two weeks, said, “First of all, it’s my senior year, and in senior year, you have a lot of things going on. Prom is in like three weeks. You’re preparing yourself for college and now you have to think about AP exams. It’s kind of hard to manage all of that.”
"Senioritis is hitting me hard."
With the AP testing starting in a week, some students are finding themselves in trouble figuring out how to study for the AP exam. “The way I studied was cramming everything the week before or the day before, but it wasn’t a good choice. Since you crammed everything in such a short time period, you don’t remember anything on the day of the test. What I would suggest is study over a long period of time. You don’t just cram everything the night before because you miss something when you’re in a rush. Take your time to study.”
AP exams will take place at the Maine West wing gyms from May 5th to May 17th.
