Getting Ready for AP Exams

Staring early May 2019, students will be taking their AP (Advanced Placement) exams that they have paid for. All AP exam fees were due Friday, March 29. If you have not already turned in your fee money, you will not be able to take the exam. There are no exceptions for late fee money, so hopefully everyone who is planning to take their AP exam(s) has their money already turned in.

Signing up for and taking an AP class entails that you will be participating in a college-level academic experience. Doing so will prepare you for college, and more importantly, for your future in general. Taking the exam can lead to you earning college credit, advanced placement or even both at the majority of colleges and universities.

The AP pre-bubbling sheets are being ordered on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. As of right now, there is not a definite date of when the pre-bubbling will take place, but it will be sometime around late April. The actual exams, on the other hand, are going to be between May 6-10, and May 13-17, and those dates cannot be switched.

If you have two exams that are scheduled at the same date and same time, rescheduling one of the exams is perfectly okay. However, if you simply just don’t show up without a valid reason, or want your exam rescheduled for no reason, you will be fined $55. No exceptions will be made unless there is an uncontrollable issue.

AP exams are reported on a 5-point scale which offers a recommendation of how qualified you are to receive college credit and placement, and you even get to decide which colleges can see your AP exam score.

5 = extremely well qualified

4 = well qualified

3 = qualified

2 = possibly

1 = no recommendation

If you have any questions about your specific AP exam (e.g., time or date), I advise that you talk to a guidance counselor, or check the “Bulletin for AP Students and Parents 2018-2019” that was handed out at the AP meeting on Tuesday, March 26.
