Commending our Students' AP Achievements

TASIS England is delighted to announce the excellent Advanced Placement (AP) exam results achieved this year. Congratulations to our AP candidates who achieved an 87.7% exam pass rate and an impressive average mean score of 4.0 out of a maximum of 5, significantly higher than the world averages of 63.6% and 3.2, respectively.

This year, 414 AP exams were taken by 174 candidates, 90% of whom attained a passing grade on at least one exam. In addition, 88 of these students were recognized as AP scholars, a status awarded to those who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more exams. Of these, 38 were named AP Scholars with Distinction (achieving a mean score of 4.31) and 14 are AP Scholars with Honor (with a mean score of 4.07). Three students also achieved AP International Diploma status as well (with a mean score of 4.68)

Of the exams taken by our students this year, 33% received the maximum score of 5, and 63% were awarded a score of 4 or higher. Head of School Bryan Nixon commented, “The excellent scores earned by our students are once again well above global results. This success reflects a resolute commitment to learning by our students and to purposeful teaching by our faculty.

We are grateful to our dedicated teachers and proud of our determined students. As we celebrate their achievements, we also encourage them to continue to fully engage in their learning journey, and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead, whether here at TASIS England or in their new learning communities and universities.”

AP courses are developed by the American College Board. Universities around the world value success in these externally graded, subject-based exams.
