The Advanced Placement (AP) test assesses the knowledge and ability of students. It grants credits to those who do well, so that they can be exempted from lower level modules, and have the prerequisites to read higher level modules directly.
This way, students can graduate in a shorter time.
The decision to award Advanced Placement Credits (APCs) will be made by the departments after considering:
a) Student’s GCE ‘A’ Level (or equivalent) qualification or polytechnic results; and
b) Student’s performance in an AP test set by the departments.
