More Georgia students in Advanced Placement courses had higher scores in their exams than their national counterparts. The department of Education says 11.4 percent of Georgia AP test takers scored a 3, 4 or 5 compared to 8.3 percent nationwide.

State officials say that over the past 6 years, the number of Georgia students taking high level course exams has more than doubled.

Colleges and universities can award college credit for AP exams completed in high school if the score is three or higher.
