AP English Language and Composition represents a highly meticulous study program for which you must deliver papers which show a profound comprehension of the topic. The truth is that even if the essay you write for your AP test features flawless syntax and organization, you might still get no more than 1 out of 9 points if you fail to support, dispute or qualify your assertion. This may seem very hard, but you can do it! Prior to enlisting in any AP course, it’s advisable to go through the study program summary and familiarize yourself with the examination.
