26 of 67 Union County High School students score 3 or higher in AP exams
The College Board recently released national and state results for their SAT and Advanced Placement assessments. SC students exceeded the national average on eight of the top ten tested subjects for AP exams. There was a slight decrease in the number of students taking exams and the number of exams taken, but SC saw an increase in the number of exams with scores of 3, 4, or 5. AP exam scores of 3 indicate a candidate who is qualified to take college-level courses. Scores of 4 indicate someone who is well-qualified, and a 5 indicates someone who is extremely well-qualified. Colleges and universities often grant class credit and use AP scores of 3 or more to place students in higher course levels.
SC students exceeded the national average in Human Geography, US History, English Literature and Composition, Calculus AB, Biology, US Government and Politics, and World History: Modern. They scored 1% below the national average in Statistics and 2% below the national average in Psychology.
Union County High School had 67 students take 67 exams. Of those, 26 scored a 3 or higher, a 39% average. Jonesville Elementary-Middle had two students take a total of two AP exams. Scores were not released due to privacy issues.
