AP Exam Scores: 
 
Congratulations on completing your AP Exams! In order to access your AP scores this summer you will need your AP ID number. Many students forgot their AP ID number cards and/or packets after their exams. If you are not able to find yours, please come to room 107 to see if we have yours.

 Visit the CollegeBoard website for more information on AP Scores and the schedule for access to your results.

Please arrive no later than 7:45 a.m. for the morning administration and 11:45 a.m. for the afternoon administration.  Depending on your last name, please be sure to report to the correct testing location for each AP Exam (see above).

Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended; do not ask to leave early if you finish before the end of the exam. If you play a sport or have a job, it is your responsibility to inform your coach or employer of your AP Exam obligation, and arrangements should be made accordingly.

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

    Your Social Security number (for U.S. citizens) for identification purposes (optional). If you provide it, the number will appear on your AP score reports.
