Exam Day Information

Get a good night's rest before your exam, and eat a nutritious breakfast. You are allowed to bring a snack and beverage to the testing site for your 10-minute break. However, food and drink are prohibited in the exam room. It is advisable to bring a jacket in case the room temperature is below your comfort level.

Students are responsible for their own transportation. Students need to arrive at testing location 30 minutes prior to exam's start time. Exams will promptly begin at scheduled start times. Students who arrive late run the risk of not being admitted into the testing room and unable to take the exam.

Students will be excused from classes during the time they are taking an AP exam, however they are expected to be in attendance at their high school before leaving to take a test or after taking an exam. Exams scheduled to begin in the afternoon may not conclude by afternoon dismissal time. Students taking an exam will be dismissed once the exam ends and all testing materials have been collected and counted. Per CollegeBoard policy, individual students may not be dismissed from the exam, even if they finish early. Most exams last approximately four hours.
