2019-2020 AP® Exam FAQs

Registration Deadline: October 25, 2019

Exam Fee: $100


What is the deadline to order AP® exams?

College Board has changed their exam ordering process for AP® Exams to Fall Registration. The exams remain in May of each year. Deadline to register for the May 2020 AP Exams at Lenape Valley Regional HS is October 25, 2019.

Late registration will not be possible.

How do I order AP® exams?

Step 1: Click on Submit AP® Exam Payment and complete the online payment form. You can submit payment using either a credit/debit card OR mail-in a check or money order. Instructions are included at the end of the form based on the payment option that you choose.

ALL students must complete the online payment form and submit payment between October 7 and October 25, 2019.

Step 2: Activate Exam – Students choose to take the exams must log into heir AP® Exam Groups on the MyAP Site at https://myap.collegeboard.org to indicate their exam decision and complete the registration process. To access the site, create or use a College Board Profile.  Students will receive a Join Code to enable joining the AP® Exam Group from their Lenape Valley AP® Course teachers. Students must join the AP® Exam group on MyAP and indicate their exam decision/commitment on that site no later than October 25 to complete their order.

⇒ BOTH steps above must be completed for an exam order to be considered complete.

Failure to complete the Join Step/Decision Indicator Step on MyAP will mean that the school coordinator cannot submit your exam order. Fees will automatically be refunded and no exam ordered.

Why are there now multiple steps for registration?

The College Board has launched this new system nationwide in August 2019 for May 2020 AP® Exams.

What are the benefits of the new system that College Board is using?

The online MyAP component will allow College Board to personalize student exam materials for exam day. This will mean no longer having to bubble onto a scantron crucial details like name, ID number and email address. AND it will mean faster and more accurate results to your colleges and universities! In addition, by also joining the Class Group with a teacher issued Join Code, students will be able to access homework and test assignments from their AP® Teachers that will include secure questions from the College Board AP® Question Bank. Students will also have access to review materials and resources.

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!

What if I qualify for Free-Reduced Lunch or other Fee Reductions?

Fee reductions sponsored by the College Board and the State of New Jersey are available to families who meet the federal eligibility requirements for Free/Reduced Lunch.  A copy of the Free/Reduced Lunch application can be found by using the search feature on the Lenape Valley Regional HS website. Approval may take several days so it is critical to apply early.  Students found eligible according to this criteria may receive a fee waiver code from Ms. Kochan in the Guidance Department.  Fee waiver codes are available from Monday, October 7 through Friday,  October 25, 2019.  Please be sure to get your fee waiver prior to submitting payment for the AP® exam(s).

When is the exam and how long is it?

The Lenape Valley Exam calendar is posted on the Calendar link on this website. On average, exams last 4 hours (this includes approximately 15 minutes of time spent on completing identifying information, etc.) Students should notify coaches, parents, etc. accordingly since no early dismissal is possible from the exam. See Exam Day Information for more details.

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.

What may I bring with me to the exam room?

See Exam Day Information for more details.

How do I figure out where my exam will be administered?

Information on testing locations will be released by the school closer to exam date.

What if I have more than one exam scheduled for the same day and same time? What if I have two exams scheduled on the same day?

College Board makes provisions for students who would like to register to take two exams that are scheduled at the EXACT same time and date. Please email info@aptsusa.com immediately to get information on late testing locations and information. Unfortunately, you would not be eligible for late testing if you are taking two exams back to back (i.e. one in the morning and one in the afternoon). In the event of back to back testing, please bring a packed lunch in clear bags (no labels.) You will be able to access it during the time between exams.

What if I decide to not take an exam? Can I get a refund?

All exams orders must be pre-paid. If you decide not to take an exam for which you have paid, you must notify APTS in writing via cancel@aptsusa.com before March 1 2020. Include in your email your name, your student ID number, the school you attend, and the title of your exam that you would like to cancel. Students who cancel in writing before midnight on October 25, 2019 will receive a full refund. Cancellation requests submitted between October 26, 2019 and March 1, 2020 are eligible for a partial refund (a non-refundable fee of $40 is retained).(See Registration Information for more details.) Students who no show for an exam are not eligible for a refund and forfeit the exam fees.

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.

Is it possible to receive accommodations on the exams for students with disabilities?

Special accommodations for students with 504s or IEPs must be applied for and approved by College Board prior to Friday, January 17, 2020. Check with your case manager or counselor to review your status and complete an application for accommodations. As per College Board’s policy, you will NOT be provided accommodations if you do not have approval from College Board.

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 your school AP® Coordinator immediately (no later than the day of the scheduled exam since deadlines for rescheduling apply.)

How do I get my scores?

AP® Exam scores will be available as of July via your College Board profile – for more information, visit http://apscores.org
