Nearly a third of the nation's 2012 public high school graduates took at least one of the College Board's Advanced Placement tests, according to the program's annual report on Wednesday. Nearly one in five got a passing score -- three or more, out of five -- on one of the 34 subject exams. Last year was the first time in a decade that the average exam score increased from the previous year. The share of students earning at least a 3 also rose for the first time in that period, and the 14.2 percent earning a top score of five was also the highest in the decade.
