2. Exam Section JOIN Codes: SFC is participating with other local area schools that administer AP Exams at the Fairgrounds in a College Board Pilot. For student exams to be ordered, students MUST submit AP exam fee payment AND ‘Join’ the AP Exam Section online at the College Board website. This applies only to exams administered at the Fairgrounds. Students will receive the Join Codes via email after Payment has been submitted. Without joining the online AP exam Section, a student’s exam will not be ordered from College Board.

3. Exams administration will largely take place off campus. Most exams are at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Specific locations and information will be posted on the this website under “Where do I report for a Test?” Parking information will be posted on this site as well.

4. Check in for morning exams will be promptly at 7:30 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. for afternoon exams. Students will then complete exam identification information, which takes approximately 30 minutes. So please make sure that you are in the room on time since every minute before the exam timing begins also counts! Morning exam administration will begin at 8am and afternoon exams at 12:15pm. Students who report after exam administration begins will not be admitted and will not have a make-up opportunity.  No exceptions.  Exams will take approximately 4 hours.  Please notify your coaches of AP Test dates and times and plan accordingly.  Students will not be allowed to leave the test early. 

5. Students must bring their school picture ID cards, two #2 pencils, pens, erasers, and calculators (if applicable – see AP Security Rules for approved types) with fresh batteries to the AP test room. Without picture ID a student WILL NOT be admitted. CELL PHONES, BACKPACKS, PURSES OR BAGS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN TESTING CENTERS. We recommend those are left at home or in your vehicle.

6. Students must adhere to the Test Site Regulations for the duration of the exam period. Consequences include removal from exam and cancellation of scores. See Test Site Regulations for specific details.

College Board regulations hold that students may not take both the AP Calculus AB and BC exams in the same calendar year.
