What is a CLEP exam?
Answered

I kow that it can help advance through a college course, but i just want some clarification on when I should look into taking one of these exams. Mainly so that I can plan my actions before I actually go to college

Also, what are the differences between a CLEP and an AP score on my transcripts?

Hi @JSpeedy!

CLEP exams aren't as widely accepted as AP exams, so look into school-specific policies. CLEP scores are scaled to a score out of 80 while AP exams are scaled to a score out of 5.

Hope this helps!
