AP Exams

The College Board AP Exam window runs from Monday, May 4 through Friday, May 15, 2020.

Need transportation to and/or from the testing location? View AP Testing Transportation Plan below!

For parents/guardians picking up their student after the conclusion of exams at Churchome, please note the end time for the morning test may go as late as approximately 12:30 p.m. and as late as 4:30 p.m. for the afternoon test.  Thank you for your patience. Testing start times vary between 8-9 a.m. and 12-1 p.m., per College Board guidelines. It is important that students arrive on time (7:30 a.m. for AM tests and 11:30 a.m. for PM tests). Other contributing factors that lead to varying test end times include: 1) number of students testing and 2) time allowed by College Board for students to complete the exams (varies from test to test).  For tests taken at Churchome, the testing end time will be posted on the whiteboard outside the main doors. Please note due to testing security, only students and proctors are allowed to enter Churchome (restrooms not available).

Exam Window Attendance Policy

  • Parents/guardians do not need to contact the Attendance Office to excuse their student for their student’s AP Exam testing date(s).
  • Parents/guardians should only call or email the Attendance Office if they receive a 6PM AutoDialer phone call/email absence notification regarding their testing student’s attendance.
  • Students will receive an all-day school-related absence on their exam day(s). The Attendance Office will be provided with a list of students to excuse for AP Testing. If a student does not show for testing, they will be marked absent and the parent notified via the 6PM AutoDialer.

Students should talk to their teachers regarding the work missed on the day of their exam, and are welcome to attend all classes that are outside of their testing window. If they are unable to return to classes after their exam or do not attend classes prior to their exam, the absence will be marked as school-related. This will allow students the flexibility to prepare and recover from the exam, and attend the classes that cannot be missed. Testing students who do choose to attend classes on their testing day must sign in and out at the Attendance Office.

How to Access Scores

College Board will make AP scores available to students online in July via the AP scores website.

In order for a student to access their scores, they will need to follow these steps.

At Exam Time:

  • Students should fill in AP answer sheets carefully and consistently at exam time to prevent delays in score access.
  • Name, date of birth, sex, mailing address, and email address are especially important.

Before July:

  • If a student hasn't already, sign up for a College Board account on the student AP scores website as early as possible.
  • Students must have THEIR OWN account to access their scores (parents must not create an account for their student).
  • It’s best to provide the same information on your College Board account and your AP answer sheet.
  • Some students may already have an account, particularly if they’ve registered for the PSAT, SAT, or participated in other College Board programs.
  • Students should confirm this by signing in.
  • Students must remember the following required login information to access scores:
    • College Board account username and password
    • 2019 AP number (or student ID number if they provided it on their AP answer sheet)

In July:

  • Students will receive a reminder email from the College Board
  • Log on to apscore.org to get their scores
