If you are a student currently in AP® Calculus AB or BC, AP® Biology, AP® Chemistry, AP® Physics C, AP® Statistics or AP® Computer Science A, there is no charge for your exam and you will activate your exam order on the College Board MyAP website during the first couple days of the HTHS class.  (If you already took an exam for an AP® class that you are sitting in now you are exempt from taking it again ONLY if you scored a 5. If you scored less then a 5 you must take it again.)

If you sign up for an exam and then decide not to take it, please let Guidance know so we do not hold up the exam room looking for you.

6. Students who report after exam administration begins will not be admitted.  No exceptions.  Please notify your coaches of AP® exam dates and times and plan accordingly.  Students will not be allowed to leave the exam early.
