Students benefited due to Advanced Placement
- Our student, Hardik Parikh, who is currently studying at the University of Illinois, gave AP exams for Physics C-Electricity & magnetism, Chemistry and Calculus BC scored 5 on 5 on all 3 AP's. He earned about 36 hours of credit through the AP exams and SAT scores. He was allowed to take maximum 18 credit hours per semester in his university, thereby saving two semesters of valuable time and tuition fees and now he is one year ahead than the regular freshman! Also, since he got 5/5 for Calculus BC, he was eligible for Calculus Honors classes. Moreover, 5/5 on Chemistry means he won't have to take Chemistry throughout!!!
- Another student, Tanvi Chheda, currently studying at Cornell University took Physics C-Mechanics, Physics C-Electricity & Magnetism, Chemistry and Calculus BC. She scored 5/5 in all four exams!
For students who aspire for their undergraduate degree in top most universities across the world.
