• All AP courses have been approved via successful completion of the AP Course Audit
  • Students are evaluated on the basis of Ministry of Education expectations for a given course
  • Course expectations that are specific to the AP program are assessed
  • Teachers use the month of April to prepare for the course final exam; this exam is designed to mimic the AP exam and includes both Ministry and AP expectations – the exam may be worth up to 20% of the value of the course
  • Students complete course major assignments or extension/enrichment projects in the weeks following the AP exam which may, at the discretion of the teacher, be submitted during the regular exam period
  • Students will earn their right to take an AP exam. This is at the discretion of the teacher and based upon the student’s performance throughout the year and on the mock exam in April. Many courses are structured in such a manner that the mock exam is worth the full 20% of the final mark. If the student achieves at an acceptable level he will earn the right to take the exam. When the student does not earn the right to take the AP exam, the mock exam will be weighted at a lesser value. For example, a poor performance on the mock exam may result in the teacher counting this mock exam for only 5% of the total value of the course. In this particular example, the student would then be required to write a June examination, and the weighting for this exam would be 15%. The percentiles provided are for demonstration purposes only, and teachers reserve the right to adjust them accordingly.
  • Students enrolled in an AP course have earned 80% or higher in the course prerequisite
  • A teacher of an individual AP course may appeal to have guidelines modified if it is in the best interest of the students in the program. Students will be notified as to what modifications have been made
