# Math 21 Advanced Placement Exam (1st semester AY 2024-25)

#### What is the Math 21 Advanced Placement Eamination?

Advanced Placement Examination (APE) is an exam given before the start of the first semester of every academic year to any freshman qualifier to the University of the Philippines in Diliman. The APE is optional and may be taken by anyone who has sufficient high school background in the subjects concerned. The advantage for a student who passes the APE is that he/she does not need to enroll in the subject passed and may proceed to the next subject. In particular, a student who passes the Math 21 APE shall be given credit of 4 units in Math 21 in his/her academic program but without numerical grade.

#### Who can take the Math 21 APE?

Incoming freshmen who have taken Basic Calculus from STEM or equivalent strand of K-12 may take the Advanced Placement Examination (APE) for Math 21 (Elementary Analysis I).
