AP - SAT - ACT - Test Optional
Advanced Placement Testing (AP Exam)
Students enrolled in AP classes are expected to take the AP exam in order to receive full AP credit for the course, in accordance with Union County policy. Students in AP courses who opt not to take the exam will have their final grade reduced by one letter grade (e.g. a 96/A will be changed to 89/B.)
