Please Read for Updated AP Exam Information

AP Exam Payment Deadline has been extended

AP Exam Updates as of April 25, 2020

There is no way to officially "cancel" an exam now since the exams are online and not being delivered in print this year. 

If you decide you don't want to take your exam, you simply don't take it and you will be refunded the cost of your exam. You do not need to contact anyone about this. The College Board will send us a list of students and which exams they have taken. I don't have an exact date of when those refunds will be issued yet.

Exam Day Checklist - students should complete this checklist for each exam they are taking and keep it with them while testing

Explainer Videos - these give students quick, easily accessible information about their test day experience, what they need to do to prepare, exam security, and more. Explore the playlist.

Taking the Exam - Students will receive an AP ticket 2 days before their exam test date via email. Their ticket will also be accessible from their CB account, in myAP.

Test dates - If students do not test during the first available date in May, they will automatically be sent another ticket to test in June. Important: there is no third option. Even if you have a legitimate emergency during the June testing date, that is absolutely the last opportunity to take the exam. 

Still not getting emails from the College Board? Please review the checklist in this link. You want to be getting communications from CB. Most importantly, make sure you have the “receive updates from CB” box is checked  in your account settings, and make sure the email you registered with is the one you’re checking. 

Exam Demo - AP students should use the clickable exam demo to practice the different ways to submit their exam responses. The demo will help students confirm that their testing device will be able to access and run the online exam. If they can’t access the demo, the final slide of the Testing Guide can help them troubleshoot. The sample content in the demo will be the same for all users and isn't a practice exam. We’ll send educators and students an email to remind them when the demo is available

Students will need to disable Grammarly.    Here are DIRECTIONS:   Grammarly Disabled  see pages 3 and 4.

This is also linked in the FAQ for students.
