This is how students learn to write for the AP exam

Writing is a valuable skill for students to develop and gain the confidence to publish their work, but not all writers are equipped to do so, a new report has found.

The AP has been encouraging students to improve their writing skills, with some courses even requiring students to write in the class’s final exam.

But what happens when the writing you’re doing doesn’t meet the standards?

For some students, that can be a struggle to find the right writing materials.

And for others, it can mean a great deal more.
