AP English Language and Composition This advanced English course focuses on critical thinking, language skills, reading comprehension, rhetorical analysis, research strategies, which are all beneficial for high school and college learning. The questions of AP English Lang are quite similar to that in the SAT English section, so it is efficient to prepare for the two simultaneously.
AP United States History It is quite a challenging subject for all candidates, as there are only 32% students scoring 4 or above. Students need to learn history through nine significant phases, understanding events and their causes and impacts. However, it is such a valuable subject that a university Admission Officer can inspect candidates’ learning ability and critical thinking.
AP Calculus AB AP Calculus AB is comparatively easier than BC, so students who plan to major in engineering or Science should choose BC. Business students are advised to take AP Calculus AB, as it is highly identical with the Freshman year Calculus.
AP Psychology AP Psychology is one of the most popular comprehensive subject, so it is a good choice for students who have not decided on a major, either science or arts. AP Psychology is ranked on medium level of difficulty, covering schools of Psychology, as well as knowledge about statistics and biology.
AP French Language and Culture Among all AP language tests, French (taken mostly by Canadian candidates) and Spanish (most useful foreign language in the U.S.) are the most popular subjects. AP French Language and Culture tests students comprehension on all types of literature, listening and speaking, as well as writing.
AP Economics （Microeconomics & Macroeconomics) Students can take both AP Microeconomics and Macroeconomics simultaneously or take AP Microeconomics one year prior to Macro, and both courses are mandatory in the first year of universities for business school students. Macroeconomics can also improve academic performance in university if students major in politics, government, law, history, etc.
AP World History AP World History is ranked on top for the level of difficulty, only 9.21% candidates scoring 5 in the year of 2020. This subject requires candidates to integrate sources, analyze evidence, formulate viewpoints, and most importantly inspect relationships in historical events.
