Colleges often recognize the achievement reached by students who pass the AP exam. While challenging, the AP exam is a great opportunity for students to earn college credit while in high school.
The AP Computer Science A course gets students familiar with the concepts and tools of computer science as they learn a subset of the Java programming language. For students enrolled either through their educational institutions or CollegeBoard, the course teaches them how to
- Design a program, develop the algorithms it needs, and write code to implement them
- Test program code and correct errors
- Adequately document and explain how program code works
For those who find themselves struggling or just need an extra boost with their AP Computer Science course, we offer homework tutoring. Allow our instructors to help you understand computer science and Java in a way that’s tailored to your needs, 1-on-1 versus a classroom environment.
AP Exam Tutoring
In 2020 the pass rate (3+ score) was 70.4% for Computer Science A and 71.6% for Computer Science Principles. While this pass rate is high compared to other AP exams, the test is regarded as one of the more difficult with fewer students attempting it over other exams regarding it as easier. Even fewer get the highest score of 5, with only 25.6% and 10.9% achieving it for Computer Science A and Computer Science Principles respectively. At Hong Kong Coding Club our instructors will ensure you perform the tasks and understand the documentation required to pass the AP Computer Science A exam, or have the stunning portfolio required to pass the AP Computer Science Principles exam.
We use Zoom for the best video-conferencing quality and highest lesson productivity for our students.
