AP Testing

IMPORTANT

At the testing site, check-in process for morning exams will begin at 7:00 AM.   College Board’s lengthy instructions need to start by 7:30, so you can begin your test at 8AM, as required by College Board.  Check-in for afternoon exams will begin at 11:30 AM.  Please arrive on time.  Late arrivals will not be admitted if instructions have begun.

 

Cell phones and all personal items must be placed in the front of the room if you bring them to the test.

 

Please bring the following items to every test:

  • Photo ID card. You will not be admitted to the test without one.
  • Several sharpened #2 pencils with erasers, and several black or blue ink ballpoint pens. (Mechanical pencils are not permitted.)
  • A College Board approved calculator and extra batteries for students taking Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, or Statistics.  (A ruler or straight edge is optional for the Physics exam only.)

Please show this letter to the Attendance Secretary after returning to school following your morning test and before leaving school for an afternoon test. AP Coordinators will clear absences and report any test absences for all scheduled tests on a daily basis.

Be reminded that District school policy does not permit students to drive other students to or from the tests.
