Baylor Has 173 Students Earn AP Awards

Friday, September 6, 2019

There are 173 Baylor students and recent graduates who earned 185 Advanced Placement Scholar Awards for 2019 in recognition of their achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams taken in May. Traditionally, about 20 percent of approximately two million students worldwide who take AP Exams perform at a sufficiently high level to earn an AP Scholar Award.
