ADVANCED PLACEMENT ADVANTAGE
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are options for able students who want  to enrich and challenge themselves in particular subjects by working on university-level material while still in high school. Students can earn university credit and must be committed to thinking and working at a high level. Students can choose a single AP course or any combination of AP courses that suit them (provided they have the prerequisites).
 
Students can also challenge any of the AP courses, even if that course is not offered in their home school. Students wishing to challenge must independently prepare themselves and must notify their school’s Student Services office by January.
 
ADVANCED PLACEMENT IN SASKATCHEWAN:
Both the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina, along  with almost all Canadian universities, grant credit to students earning a score  of 4 or 5 in AP courses. Most U.S. universities give credit for scores of 3, 4 or 5.  The student’s score is based entirely on either an extended May exam or, in Studio Art, on a portfolio submitted in May. This university credit is for a  first-year class, which saves students tuition and gives them more flexibility  in their timetables.
