Chinese advanced placement (AP) courses are still new to the domestic high schools and universities, but may develop to be a new route for students' evaluation and university enrollment. The Second High School Attached to Beijing Normal University was chosen to participate the pilot project, and had accomplished three rounds of AP Chemistry teaching. The curriculum objectives, contents, and methodology of AP chemistry were discussed in the paper. Some suggestions to improve the AP courses were proposed.

Key words: University chemistry, Advanced placement (AP) course, Talent cultivation, University enrollment
