NC Gains On College Credit Test, Lags Nation

RALEIGH, N.C. More North Carolina high school students are doing advanced work and more of them are getting college credit by passing a broadly watched test.


The New York-based College Board said in a report Tuesday that 31 percent of North Carolina's high school graduates in 2013 took an Advanced Placement exam during high school, up from 24 percent a decade earlier.


About 19 percent of graduates scored high enough on the test last year to earn college credit. North Carolina's increase from 15 percent earning credit a decade earlier was one of the smallest jumps in the country.


The College Board says 17 states exceeded the national average of graduates scoring high enough to earn college credit. North Carolina was 18th on that list, just below the national average.
