Why Should I Take the Exam?
Each year, the College Board administers a standardized test called the Advanced
Placement Statistics Examination. The exam is designed to assess student
proficiency in introductory statistics.
Through the AP Statistics Exam, you benefit in three ways.

Course credit: Receive credit or advanced standing for an introductory college
statistics course.
In addition, you can save on tuition if you receive course credit.
How Do I Register for the Exam?
If your school offers AP courses, talk to the AP Coordinator. He or she will
help you register. If you are homeschooled or attend a school that does not
offer AP, you can still take the AP Statistics Exam.

Call the local AP Coordinator no later than March 15.
