Please arrive no later than 7:30 a.m. on the day of the test. Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m.
What to Bring to the Exam Room
You want to be prepared with items such as 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, and your government-issued or school-issued photo I.D.
If you're taking the AP Biology calculator policy page, Calculus AB calculator policy page, Calculus BC calculator policy page, Chemistry calculator policy page, Physics B calculator policy page, Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism calculator policy page, Physics C: Mechanics calculator policy page or Statistics calculator policy page Exams, you should bring a calculator approved for use on designated parts of the exam.
Remember, whether it is during breaks or after the exam, you must not communicate anything to anyone, including your classmates and your teachers, about the multiple choice questions that appeared on your AP Exam.
Discussing Exam Questions
Do not email, text, post or in any other way circulate AP Exam information through any kind of social media, or your AP Exam score may be canceled and you could also be banned from taking future AP Exams.
Also, while you are able to talk about the free-response questions from the regularly scheduled exam, you can only do so after two days and if your particular free-response questions have been posted to the College Board website.
The AP Exam is intended to be a fair assessment of your academic ability. Sharing exam information in any unauthorized way compromises the integrity of the exam for all AP students, and for the colleges and universities that grant credit or advanced placement for qualifying AP scores.
Reporting Exam Day Problems
If you believe there is a problem while you are taking the exam (e.g., you aren’t given enough time for a section of the exam, or the directions you receive are incorrect), notify your AP Coordinator immediately so that any necessary action can be taken as soon as possible. If that doesn’t resolve the situation, speak to your principal.
If you are home-schooled or do not have an AP Coordinator at your school, contact AP Services.
Reporting Ambiguous or Incorrect AP Exam Questions
AP Exam questions are developed and reviewed carefully by qualified education professionals. However, if you believe there is a problem with a question, print and complete the AP Exam Question Ambiguity and Error Form (.pdf/502 KB), and mail or fax it to AP Assessment Development no later than June 16 of the year you took the exam.
