Each year, hundreds of thousands of high school students around the country and around the word take what are known as "Advanced Placement" exams.

These exams are usually the culmination of year-long high school courses, and students are eligible to receive college credit for passing the exams, depending on the grade received.

Every exam, except for a small number of art and language courses, consists of a multiple-choice section and a free-response or essay section.
