Advanced Placement students who have spent the year caught up in the whirlwind of cramming for exams may find a new proposition to be an opportunity to study interesting concepts they were forced to skip over due to the crunch for time before the APs.

The proposed plan would give students the opportunity after finishing AP exams to continue with classes without the stress of prepping for the AP test and at a more relaxed pace, focusing on the more intriguing concepts.

“The decision to have Advanced Placement classes after the AP test has been driven by the pressure to only focus on the exam and test preparation during the year,” said dean Rachel Simpson. “The students are not able to have fun within the class and become passionate about the subject with projects, presentations or special readings.”

Students would be given the chance in a relaxed environment to look beyond the stress of the AP exam and focus on improving grades.

“I believe AP classes should be given after AP exams only if extra credit can be given,” senior Elena Dudum said. “After my English exam last year, we were able to attend optional classes which helped me bring grade up.”

Although classes vary, it is generally impossible to get all the course material in before the AP test. The students are denied a full academic experience, if they do not have the opportunity to study all the material.

The classes after APs will serve as a well-deserved break for students to learn in a lower-stress environment and fill in the details they may have skipped over while cramming for the AP.
