West Columbia, SC - Nearly 40 Lexington Two high school students earned scores high enough on spring 2017 AP exams to be named AP Scholars.
High school students take Advanced Placement (AP) classes and can receive college credit if their standardized end-of-course exams are high enough. AP Scholars are those students who take at least three AP exams and have an average score of a 3 or better.
According to College Board officials, students who score a 3 or above on an AP exam demonstrate college-level mastery of the subject and will typically earn college credit at most colleges and universities.
One Lexington Two student, Nathan Walton of Brookland-Cayce High School, was named an AP Scholar with Distinction, given to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken or a score of 3 or higher on five or more AP exams.
Two other Brookland-Cayce High School students, Skyler Addy and Micah Aebischer, were named AP Scholars with Honor, given to students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken or a score of 3 or higher on four or more exams.
