AP, IB, PSAT, SAT & ACT Testing

 
AP TESTING
 
Students enrolled in AP classes may take the AP examination in May during spring semester. If students receive a score of 3, 4, or 5, four-year and community colleges may waive the equivalent course at the college level, thus awarding credit for passing AP scores.
 
IB TESTING
 

Students enrolled in IB classes may take the IB examination in May during spring semester. If students receive a score of 5, 6, or 7, many 4-year and community colleges may waive the equivalent course at the college level, thus awarding credit for passing IB scores. Some colleges award college credit for score of 3 or 4, but that decision varies by the institution.

Note: Students on Free or Reduced Lunch may receive a waiver to cover cost of fees. Please review the IB portion of this website for possible scholarship opportunities to fund IB testing costs.

 
PSAT, SAT & ACT TESTING
 

PSAT

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board.  This is a practice exam for the SAT college admittance exam. The PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 are the same test, offered at different times of year.

They have these benefits in common:

● They are both great practice for the SAT because they test the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, in a way that makes sense for your grade level.
● They both provide score reports you can use to personalize your Khan Academy® SAT practice.
● These score reports also list which AP courses you should check out.

The PSAT 10 is administered in the Spring to all 10th graders free of charge. The fees are paid by Campbell Union High School District.

The PSAT/NMSQT is available to students in grades 9-11, but is strongly encouraged for 11th grade students. 11th graders who take the PSAT/NMSQT are entered into the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Students can learn more and prepare for the PSAT by visiting the College Board website here
