Overview

The Advanced Placement (AP) test for college credit is developed by the College Board . This test, three hours long, includes listening and reading comprehension, grammar, essay writing and speaking onto a tape. It is administered in May at a designated high school.

During the past 10+ years students from our school have continuously participated in AP German exam offered by the College Board.  They have continuously scored with high marks, mostly 4's and 5's. (Note: 5 being the highest and 1 the lowest mark, with 1 and 2 not passing.)

Passing the AP German exam, as well as three other AP exams, are part of the qualifications required by many German Universities which allows students to forego an extra year at a Studienkolleg.

Preparation/Prep Class

AP German

The AP German Exam will be held on the afternoon of May 4, 2021.

GASPA is not offering a traditional prep class this school year (2020/21).

If you are interested in learning more about prep classes or tutoring, please contact our office directly.

GASPA does not administer the exam directly. Students need to sign up for the exam on their own, either at their own high school or other high schools that offer AP German and accept external students. We are only able to provide instruction and preparation for the exam.
