Are AP Biology classes hard?

AP students are expected to comprehend and discuss complex topics in biology with the same aptitude as a freshman in college. Although AP coursework may be difficult, many of our students found the material to be a fun challenge, and beneficial towards their college careers.

The rigorous work involved in an AP course can be intimidating, but the benefits of taking an online AP course are worth it! In addition to gaining incredible knowledge, students will get college credit and college course experience to prepare them for future higher education courses.

How does AP Biology work?

The course takes one semester to complete, and works much like a regular class except more in-depth. AP Biology involves thorough analyses of complicated topics in life-science, with the written and communicative abilities to not only understand the topics but to question them as well. Students will take an AP Exam at the end of the semester to determine how much college credit they’ve earned.

Is AP Biology necessary?

AP class are not necessary to graduate, but they are helpful in applying for college and staying debt-free. AP Biology, along with other AP course, prepares students for a future of further education in nursing or earth sciences which standard courses just can’t match.

How many AP classes should I take?

Research often helps students figure out how many AP classes they should take in a year, but someone’s ability to handle coursework changes year to year as that individual grows. Challenge yourself at first, but try not to overwhelm yourself with work, and go from there.

How does the weighted AP GPA work?

One of the many benefits of taking AP classes is that they count more towards your GPA than standard courses: which means that it is possible for students to achieve a GPA greater than 4.0! Many of our AP students see this as a safety net and a challenge to graduate with a 4.0+ (very impressive to colleges).

How should I choose my AP classes?

Regular, Honors, and AP classes have important differences, namely that you can earn college credit while still in high school by taking advantage of AP classes offered.

I’m homeschooled. Can I take AP Biology online?

You sure can! Many of our students are homeschooled and take AP classes online to supplement their curriculum. Homeschooled students can earn AP credits by enrolling part-time at eAchieve Academy.

Are AP classes a good idea for all high school students?

AP classes have pros and cons depending on the type of student you are, and your plans for higher education.

Is AP Biology the same as a college biology course?

AP classes are meant to be as hard as introductory level college courses. So AP Biology in high school can be compared to a first-year biology class in college.

Do colleges like AP Biology?

AP classes look great on college applications as long as you’ve earned good grades and exam scores.

How do I manage more than one AP class at a time?

Managing multiple AP courses in high school can present new challenges, but it’s also a great opportunity to learn time-management skills that will serve you well in college and in the workplace.

Is taking AP biology better than a dual enrollment biology class?

Comparing AP classes with dual enrollment courses isn’t necessarily straightforward. AP courses are standardized in each state, but the quality of a dual enrollment class varies depending on the institution.
