More Fayette Students Taking AP Courses, Pass Rate Holds Steady

The latest Advanced Placement (AP) scores released by the College Board show that more Fayette students took AP exams compared to last year while maintaining an overall 70 percent pass rate.

AP classes and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP classes offer rigorous college-level learning options to students in high school. Students who receive a 3, 4 or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit.

The total number of Fayette students taking the exams increased one percent in 2010. As was the case last year, the most tested subjects were United States History, English Language and Composition, and English Literature and Composition.

Fayette’s students outpaced the nation in scoring higher passing rates in the majority of subjects tested. The College Board will release detailed national data in the fall.
