I have already introduced two types of top international schools Singapore before, I think some parents and kids have got some ideas, today I will introduce the last curriculum the AP curriculum, hope parents can finially determine a curriculum that suitable for their kids.

The speciality of the AP curriculum.

AP is the abbreviation of Advanced Placement, which can also be called as the prerequisite course of American universities. It's set up by The Collede Board, a college course but can be learned in high school. Ap it's a good opportunity for the excellent students or who want to enter the top famous universities students to show their learning skill. Because students can learn the college courses in advance, then take the exam and get the score. The score can help them obtain the course credit of universities. What's more, learning the AP in advance it's also a good way to save money, because there are thousands dollars to studying one course in university, but if one choose learn in high school, he just need to pay the examination cost of 82 dollars. So in Singapore, more and more international schools adopt the AP in high school to help students who want to study in American can enter a more good university.

The difficulty of AP

The curriculum is designed ingenious to avoid the course repetition in high school and college. There are 22 majors and 37 courses for students to select. Students can accord their interest to choose the course they like, but in order to enter top universities, many students will choose more courses as they can and the difficulty is also high.

The curriculum provision of AP

Among these three courses, AP is the most difficult in a single course. Frenchmen have to learn the biology, calculus, chemistry, economy, psychology, history and etc, if one still wants to learn some languages like French, Spain, German, which will take them 6 semesters to finish. So the learning difficulty is greater.

The assessment way of AP

Students can take one exam each year in May. The exam can be divided into two parts, the multiple-chioce question and free answer. Students can accord their learning conditions to choose the object. AP is adopted a five-point scale. Generally, students who got 3 or more than 3 can exchange their score for university course credit, but because of high competition, some famous top university just accepts students who get more than4 or even 5. Fewer universities not accept the AP score.

The recognition degree when apply universities

AP exam as an important part of American high school students that have been accepted by many universities. The AP score has become important admitting gist of American University. But as I had mentioned before,

As there is no strict requirement on students but depend on students self-study, so in order to get the famous school admiration, many of them will choose the course as more as they can and studying hardly to get a high score. It's good for students who are excellent for self-studying and learn skills. But if your kids are more interesting in arts or more active, choose AP is not a wise choice, because most of the course is literature and science.

I have introduced all the three types of top international schools Singapore, to choose a suitable curriculum that suitable for your kids learning custom and interest can help kids getting twice the good influence with half

the effort.
