AP Testing Update! Important new info this week!

AP Updates 5/29

  • Makeup/Late testing begins June 1st. See the Makeup exam schedule and other information here: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap-exams/ap-exam-schedule?SFMC_cid=EM314946-&rid=30696572#makeup

  • AP students who requested a makeup exam were notified via e-mail on May 28th

  • 2 days prior to your makeup/late testing exam, you will automatically receive an e-mail with your new e-ticket.

  • Click your e-ticket to check in 30 minutes before the exam start time. Allot 80 minutes for each exam - 30 minutes to enter AP ID, name, and other information, and 50 minutes to draft and submit responses. During the exam, keep an eye on the time and begin submission at the five-minute mark.

  • **IMPORTANT** BACK-UP E-MAIL SUBMISSION - Due to submission errors, College Board has implemented a back-up e-mail submission process. This option will only be available for students who were not able to submit in the standard process and they must then email their responses immediately following their exam. These students will see instructions about how to email their response on the page that says, "We Did Not Receive Your Response." The email address that appears on this page will be unique to each student.

  • **IMPORTANT** Tips to avoid problems on exam day: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap-exams/tips-avoiding-problems

  • If you do NOT want to take an AP exam, simply DO NOTHING. Ignore all e-mails from the College Board and do not click the e-ticket sent to you. Your AP Coordinator will receive the names of students who did not take exams (in June) and refunds will be issued from there. Refunds will not include a $40 late fee if you registered late, otherwise, a full refund will be given.

Already completed your exam/s? - CONGRATS and feel free to use these links to address questions you may have about what happens next.
