The Advanced Placement (AP) tests will be administered by the United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) starting from May 7, 2012. A number of colleges and universities in the United States accept credits earned via the AP
programme based on the score in these tests. There are many colleges in about 60 other countries that also offer similar advantages to AP students. Each institution has its own policies, but in general, a majority of schools require a score of three or more for credits to be granted. All students interested in taking these exams should contact the nearest USIEF office and register on or before March 30, 2012. Until now, only a couple of schools in Mumbai offered AP but only for their own students. However, the new centres are open to all. Any student of Class 10, 11 or 12 is eligible to enroll.
