Tips for setting up your College Board Profile on MyAP®:
– Use an email address that you will have access to throughout high school AND university
– Make sure to enter your COMPLETE legal name to prevent issues with sending score reports to colleges and universities
– Enter your school Student ID number in the field provided on MyAP®. This will assist your school in accurate exam day attendance reporting
– Carefully select your school of enrollment: If students have to search for their school name, it’s possible there could be multiple search results of the same school name. The city and state is listed next to the school name; students can also search by zip code – The ALHS zip code is 94116. To ensure accurate score reporting, students need to select their correct school.
I can’t access my College Board Profile account. What do I do?
Can I change when I take the exam?
Exam times are set by The College Board. See the calendar at the link below.
There is a late testing period from May 17-20, 2022. In order to qualify for late testing, a student must have an extenuating circumstance. Some reasons for late testing result in no additional fee, while others result in an additional $40 fee. If you have a conflict with any of the test dates, please contact your school AP Coordinator for approval. Click HERE for the College Board Late Testing Policy.
What are the acceptable reasons for switching an exam to an alternate date?
Having two exams at the same exact time, having a medical absence on the day of the regularly scheduled exam, a sibling’s college graduation ceremony requiring absence from school, a major school event that conflicts with an exam.
Is there financial aid available for the 2022 exams?
Yes. ALHS is committed to ensuring every student can take an AP® exam. Students who are eligible for a reduction will be contacted by ALHS AP Coordinator, Ms. Weil at firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions to register based on your individual eligibility status.
- Eligible students will be provided a Fee Reduction Code to apply to the online payment form linked on this page and the code will reduce the exam fees.
- Code usage is verified by APTS.
- Approval will reduce the cost to $5 per exam.
What if I have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 plan?
The College Board must approve any changes or modifications to the AP® exam administration. Students with a current IEP or 504 plan who wish to receive testing accommodations must contact their special education liaison (IEP) or guidance counselor (504) ASAP. The deadline to submit applications for accommodations is January 8, 2022.
What may I bring with me into the exam room?
Students MUST bring their current student ID, number two pencils (mechanical pencils have the ability to tear the answer sheet and are therefore not permitted), erasers, pens with black or blue ink, and a calculator (if needed – calculator must be a College Board approved calculator – click HERE for a list of approved calculators.)
What should I NOT bring into the exam room?
-Cell phone, smartwatch, iPad, or any other digital device. If you are found to be in possession of any of these items, even if turned off, you will be dismissed from the exam. If a device is used at any point during testing or the breaks, or is not used but makes sound, the College Board requires that the exam proctor take the device and gain access to it for inspection (this policy is outlined HERE).
Can I bring a snack and drink?
Yes. They must be in a clear plastic bag. They will be stored in a designated area of the room. Students will not be able to keep their snack/beverage with them at their testing table.
What if I finish the exam early? Can I leave early?
Per College Board’s security regulations for exams, students may not leave the test until time is called and ALL examinees are excused together. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE. Please notify your team coach, employer, parent, etc. regarding the timing of the exam. Most exams take approximately 4 hours to complete.
This same policy applies to students testing with extended time. Students with extended time do not have to use all the extended time provided to them, but they must use the regular allotted exam time and cannot leave before the standard time has passed.
Where can I go for additional information regarding AP®exams?
