Virginia ranks 3rd in AP exam scores
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - More than 23 percent of Virginia's 2010 high school seniors who took Advanced Placement tests qualified for college credit on at least one exam.
Virginia's students are ranked third in the nation in the College Board's AP Report to the Nation for the fourth consecutive year.
The annual report released Wednesday says 30,781 Virginia seniors took at least one AP exam during their high school careers. Of those, 19,162 scored a three or higher on at least one exam.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Patricia Wright says almost twice as many seniors earn college credit on the AP exams as those who took the tests a decade ago.
