AP Testing Reminders

  • Students need to arrive by 7:30am for the 8am administration and 11:30am for the 12pm administration.
  • Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended.
  • Students cannot bring backpacks into the testing site.
  • All testing absences are excused as long as testers arrive on time. The AP Coordinator will approve those absences with the attendance secretary.
  • Remember to eat prior to testing (breakfast or lunch), because food and water will not be allowed during the test. If you are taking two exams on the same day, be sure to bring something to eat between exams (you may have very limited time).
