You should plan to arrive at the exam writing location EARLY. We will begin the preliminary exam requirements at 7:30 am for morning exams, and 11:30 am for afternoon exams. If you are delayed because you are still doing the preliminary work due to your late arrival you WILL NOT be given extra time to write your exam.

Be sure to bring these:

• No. 2 pencils for your multiple-choice answer sheet.
• Pens with black or dark blue ink for completing areas on the exam booklet covers and for free-response questions in most exams.
• An acceptable calculator if your AP Exam allows the use of a calculator.

Extra pencils and pens will be available in limited quantity, so please do bring multiples. Make sure that calculators are charged and/or have extra batteries. Extra calculators will be in limited supply. 

Don't bring these:

• Electronic equipment including phones, smartwatches, fitness trackers, wearable technology, cameras, recording or listening devices, or any other type of electronic or communication device.
• Books, reference guides, notes, compasses, protractors, mechanical pencils, pencils that are not No. 2, correction fluid, dictionaries, highlighters, or colored pencils.
• Scratch paper: Students testing in-school are prohibited from bringing scratch paper to the AP Exam, but scratch paper will be provided.
• Watches that beep, make a noise, or have an alarm.
• Computers or calculators that are not approved.
• Reference guides, keyboard maps, or other typing instructions.
• Ear plugs.
• Clothing or shoes with subject-related information.
• Food or drink.
• Clipboards.

Any of the above restricted items must remain outside of the exam room, and will not be able to be accessed even during breaks. AP exams have very explicit requirements, well beyond those of Diploma exams, that we must abide by. Thus there is no eating or drink during the exam time, so make sure that you get up in time to have a good breakfast/lunch before the exam. Short breaks are provided where you will be able to eat or drink in the approved break area.

Should you have to miss a testing date due to medical reasons, please let Mr. Gay know and he will work out an alternate testing date for you. If you have any questions regarding the AP Exams please see Mr. Gay.
