AUS is proud to announce that Madhumita Rajagopal (Class of 2021) has received the prestigious AP International Diploma. This diploma is awarded by the College Board to students who have earned a passing score of 3 or higher on five or more AP exams in four different content areas.
To date, Madhu has taken and passed six AP exams and has scored a 4 or higher on all of them: AP Language, AP Literature, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP US History, and AP World History. She is currently preparing for the AP Biology and AP Economics exams.
Taking AP courses and passing AP exams gives students a competitive edge when it comes to applying to Colleges and Universities, and this International Diploma certainly helps Madhu stand out. Congratulations, Madhu!

"This is a very weird menu." I looked at Josh. "Don't worry, I'll order for you" he said. The food arrived and Josh pointed at each dish saying, "That's sheep kidney, fish eyes, and cow liver." A dish was placed in front of me "Is this human flesh," I joked. "No, it's horse meat, human flesh is pink, and very chewy."
Taibah Ali, Grade 10
The door to my room was painted shut as I sought refuge in the cabinet from the eerie footsteps I heard coming from downstairs. My gasps were almost audible as I gathered my thoughts. The stride was petrifying. My heart sank after I felt a nudge on my side. The marks on my back still can’t be described by doctors.
