AP and IB Exam Schedule May 2023 (Updated 4/23/23)
*AP and IB exams may run later than the time listed on the schedule. If a student has an extended time accommodation, they may have up to 50% additional time to complete their exam(s). This means that some exams may end as late as 4:30 pm.
*Testing locations are subject to change. Please check the schedule the day before your exam(s) to confirm your location.
- Students must arrive at their testing location 30 minutes before the scheduled test.
- Students will not be allowed in the testing location if the student arrives more than 15 minutes after the listed start time.
- Students must take their examinations at the assigned time on the assigned date. Late test date(s)/ time(s) are only for students who have been pre-approved.
- All bags, pocketbooks, and other belongings should be left at the front of the exam room.
- No textbooks/notebooks/instruction books are to be brought into the exam room.
- No food or drink (other than water) is allowed in the exam room.
- No cell phones or other electronic devices (including earbuds and smart watches) are to be brought into the exam room (unless silenced and left in a bag). Having an electronic device on your person during exams is a testing violation and will result in an "N" no grade” on the exam.

- Students must write in either blue or black ink (except for multiple choice papers).
