Where do I get an admission ticket?
Students do not need admission tickets to enter the AP® Exam testing facilities. However, each student does need a CURRENT picture id, such as a CURRENT school ID or a driver’s license. Without picture ID students will not be allowed to enter the room.
What may I bring with me to the exam room?
Students MUST bring a current picture ID, at least two #2 pencils, pens in blue or black ink, and a calculator if applicable. No cell phones or electronic communication devices are allowed. No iPods or MP3 players are allowed. No highlighters are allowed. Students may bring backpacks, purses, or bags to the testing room, but will be directed to place those items in a specific location inside the exam location. Water is the only liquid which may be brought inside the exam room. Snack items brought to the testing room must be stored in clear plastic bags.
When do I need to report to the testing room?
Exams will be held in the library. For the AP® Spanish Language exam on May 7, 2019 students need to report to the exam room at 7:30am. For the AP® French Language exam on May 8, 2019 students need to report to the exam room at 11:30am. Specific exam room information will be available closer to the test date. Students MUST be on time for check in since there is identification information that must be completed before testing can begin which adds additional time to the testing time. For security reasons, students will not be admitted to the room once the exam materials have been opened. Late arrivals who are not admitted to the room are considered ‘no shows’ and are not eligible for any refund.
Do I need to excuse my absence from school during the exam?
You will automatically be excused for the class periods that are affected by the testing. Students will be excused from the remainder of the school day once the exam is finished. Students and parents should make arrangements for transportation for that day.
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. If a student leaves without permission, their exam will be collected and submitted separately to College Board. Their score will be cancelled and no refund will be possible. Exams are approximately 4 hours. Please be prepared for the duration of the exam.
What if I get sick and can’t make the exam?
There are provisions for students who become sick or injured during or right before testing. In case of such an emergency, please contact Mr. Villareal immediately.
