Arkansas Offers Incentives For AP Computer Science
The exam in question is Advanced Placement Computer Science a administered by the College Board, a non-profit organization that administers standardized tests related to university and college admissions in the United States. Its mission is to expand access to higher education and to help students prepare for a successful transition to college. Advanced Placement, which offers 30 subjects in paid-for courses, is a program that enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school and to demonstrate their abilities to college and university admission officers and gives them a head start by starting uni with courses already completed. More than 90% of four-year colleges and universities in the US grant students credit, placement, or both on the basis of successful AP exam scores and they are also recognized by universities in more than 60 countries.  To read further, please visit http://i-programmer.info/news/150-training-a-education/11233-arkansas-offers-incentives-for-ap-computer-science.html.
