How do I order AP® exams?
Step 1: Activate Exam – Students must log into their AP® Class on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org to activate their exams and join the online course.
Join Codes are issued by your teachers and are course, teacher and period specific.
To join the class on MyAP, log in and click “Add Class/Exam” and then enter the Join Code for each our your AP Classes.
ALL students should complete this step to have access to online resources for the course. Deadline to activate the exam corresponding to a Fall semester course is October 23, 2020.
Students enrolled in courses that commence in the Spring semester will not be able to join the class until the course commences.
Step 2 -Fee Submission – Students who choose to take an exam corresponding to a course that commenced in the fall may submit fees between September 14 and October 23, 2020 by clicking on Submit AP® Exam Payment and completing the online payment form.
Courses that commence in the Spring semester will have an exam fee submission window between February 1 and February 26, 2021.*
⇒ BOTH steps above must be completed for an exam order to be considered complete.
Failure to complete the Join Step on MyAP will mean that the school coordinator cannot submit your exam order. Fees will automatically be refunded and no exam ordered.
What if I can’t log into my College Board profile or can’t remember if I have one?
Students create College Board profiles to access their AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores or to register for a SAT® Exam. You may already have an account if you have taken any of these exams in the past.
Don’t create a second account!
Each student should have only ONE College Board account during their high school careers which houses AP®, PSAT® and SAT® scores and information. For log in help visit: https://pages.collegeboard.org/account-help or https://myap.collegeboard.org
Students may also call College Board AP® Services for Students: 1-866-630-9305.
Which information should I provide on my College Board MyAP Registration Profile?
Students should use their legal name (to match school records), so that the name will also match the student’s School ID or driver’s license at exam check in. College Board also sends scores electronically to colleges/universities. A discrepancy in name can result in score reporting issues and delays. To update a name or correct a name, contact College Board at 1-866-630-9305.
Students should use an email address that they will have access to BEYOND high school and where they can receive alerts from College Board or APTS. The email address used on the College Board profile should also match the email address on the APTS Payment form to ensure exam order reconciliation.
Students should provide a student ID number on the registration profile – this will enable identification of any errors in student name (for example, nicknames versus legal names.)
College Board does not collect Social Security numbers, so your account is identified as unique based on your email address, School Student ID number, and name. Be consistent in how you enter information!
Where do I get the Join Code to be able to Activate my AP® Exam/Class on MyAP?
Join Codes are subject, teacher and class period specific. Please see your Lakeland Regional HS AP® Course teacher for the Join Code ASAP. Students enrolled in the courses that COMMENCE in the Spring will receive the codes when the course commences.
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 school ID or a driver’s license. Without picture ID students will not be allowed to enter the room.
How do I qualify for a fee reduction?
Students who believe they may be eligible for a fee reduction must speak with their counselor or Mrs. Ross. Approval for fee reductions will be based on criteria established annually by the College Board.
What should I bring to the exam room?
Several # 2 pencils, pens with blue or black ink, calculator (if applicable), erasers, ruler (only if you are taking the AP® Physics exam).
What cannot be brought to the exam room?
No cell phones, electronic devices (other than approved calculators), purses, backpacks, highlighters, mechanical pencils, books. No food or drink.
How do I know where to report for my exam?
Room assignments and further details will be given out closer to exam dates in May 2021.
When do I need to report to the testing room?
Morning exam: 7:30 sharp
Afternoon exam: 11:30 sharp
What if I am late?
Students will not be permitted to the testing room late for security reasons. Late arrivals who are not admitted to the testing rooms are considered “no shows” and are not eligible for refunds or make up exams.
How do I know when the exam is?
The exam calendar is posted at the link below. Counselors also have copies of the exam calendar.
How do I know how long each exam is?
On average exams last 3 and half hours. Please plan accordingly.
What if I have more than one exam scheduled for the same day and same time?
College Board makes provisions for students who wish to register to take two exams that are scheduled at the EXACT same time and date. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to get information on late testing registration and information. If you have a conflict, you must also see Mrs. Ross in Guidance ASAP.
What if I decide not to take an exam?
Students taking an Advanced Placement course may take the Advanced Placement Exam for that course in lieu of the final exam. If the regular final exam is not taken, the final grade for the Advanced Placement course will be based solely on the marking period grades. The student’s score on the Advanced Placement Exam will have no bearing on the final grade.
If the student and parent decide to pursue this option, the following conditions apply:
- Full Payment for the Advanced Placement Exam must be submitted to APTS by the applicable deadline. The fee is non – refundable.
- If the student agrees to take the Advanced Placement Exam in lieu of the regular final exam and then does not take the Advanced Placement Exam, the student must then sit for the regular final exam.
- If the student agrees to take the Advanced Placement Exam in lieu of the regular final exam and then does not take the Advanced Placement Exam, the final grade in that Advanced Placement course will be reduced by one full grade if the final exam is not taken. SENIORS are not exempt from this policy, even if the student has an “A” average in the course!
- Nothing stated in the policy above is meant to preclude a student from taking the normally scheduled final exam in the Advanced Placement course and choosing to also take the Advanced Placement Exam.
- Please contact your school counselor if you have any questions.
If I cancel an exam, will I get a refund?
No. Per Lakeland Regional HS policy there are no refunds given for AP® exams that are not taken.
What if I finish early? Can I leave early? Can I leave early because I have sports, work, other commitments?
Under no circumstance will a student be permitted to leave an AP® exam early. This is per College Board’s security regulations.
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, you must notify Ms. Ross by calling the guidance office at 973-835-1900 x122 by 8:00 AM. A doctor’s note may be required.
What happens if I register for the wrong exam?
If a student inadvertently registers for the wrong test, they must contact APTS (email@example.com) no later than the registration deadline for your semester payment window. You must also notify Ms. Ross (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Are there any circumstances that allow for an alternate late testing date?
Per College Board regulations, there are some circumstances that allow for a student to take a late exam on an alternate testing date. Depending on the circumstance, there may be a late testing fee charged. Alternate late exams will be given on May 18-21, 2021 as per College Board. For more information regarding alternate late testing, please refer to your AP® student pack or www.collegeboard.org.
How can I practice for the AP® Exams?
*Students taking courses that commence in the Spring semester may submit the fees before October 23, 2020 but are not required to do so. Since there are no refunds, it’s highly recommended to wait to submit the exam fees until after the course has commenced.
