AP = Advanced Placement, a mechanism whereby U.S. secondary school students can get university credit for a subject by taking an advanced course during high school and passing a standardized (difficult) test on the subject. The test scores are 1-5, where 5 will induce most universities to give actual credit toward graduation, and 4 will usually allow exemption from the university course but without credit. (Rule of thumb: European secondary school corresponds to U.S. secondary school plus the first two years of U.S. university in terms of content.) -- John Cowan You tollerday donsk? N.
