A New Curriculum for Advanced Placement Courses

A.P. Biology and A.P. United States history students and teachers now have a reason to celebrate. Starting in the 2012-13 school year, these two tests will require less study material and have all new exams. The changes being made to the A.P. exams are designed to help students focus on bigger concepts, and in biology, allow for more creative experiments in order to stimulate thinking. The curriculum creators hope that this shift in focus will give students the opportunity to better apply the knowledge they gain in A.P. courses and be more prepared for a post-secondary education.
