25 College Success Research Outcomes An AP exam score of 2 correlates with better college performance than students who did not take an AP course or took the course and skipped the exam. An AP exam score of 2 had higher four-year graduation rates than AP courses alone, and other non-AP courses. AP students had higher first-year and fourth-year GPAs than those who did not take AP courses in high school. AwarenessAccessSuccess
