Even if your school doesn’t offer AP classes, you can still take any AP exam if you are interested in the subject and don’t mind studying on your own. Doing well on an AP can even get you college credit or an exemption from certain prerequisites!

The AP U.S. Government and Politics exam has both multiple choice and free-response questions, testing a student's understanding of the US political system and their ability to analyze founding documents and Supreme Court decisions.

What Happens If You Fail an AP Exam?
By Lisa Speransky
What Happens If You Fail an AP Exam?
You might be worried if you fail an AP exam (where failing is receiving a score less than 3), but don’t worry! Passing an AP exam has many benefits: you may receive college credit, it may help you win an AP Scholars award, and it may add to a larger picture of your academic success that can help you get into colleges. Failing an AP exam won’t grant you these advantages, but doesn’t carry any additional weight beyond that. You can certainly still get into colleges, however, you may need to take additional courses once you attend university than you would have with a passing AP score. It’s also worth noting that a failing AP score is evidence that you likely have not grasped the course material, and is an opportunity for you to rethink your study habits.
