High school seniors across the state of Georgia are passing their advanced placement exams.

In Dougherty County seniors are passing as well.

65 students made passing scores of three or more on their AP exams

School leaders say this year they had the same number of students passing as in the past.

"The state department pays for one free test for students who qualified and there was a reduction fee for other students. But for students who may wanted to take additional tests they would have to pay for it for themselves," said Renee Bridges, DCSS Testing Supervisor.
