    AP Exam Student Information

    Exam Day Procedures:

    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 (locations to be posted soon). 

    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. 

     

    What Students Can Bring Into The Exam Room:

    • Several sharpened No. 2 pencils (with erasers) for completing multiple-choice answer sheets.
    • Pens with black or dark blue ink only, for completing areas on the exam booklet covers and for free-response questions in most exams.
    • A watch that doesn't have internet access, doesn't beep and doesn't have an alarm.
    • Up to two calculators with the necessary capabilities if they are taking an AP® Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, or Statistics Exam.  Students are encouraged to look at the AP Calculator Policy page and click on the link for their course for the specific calculator policy.
    • A government-issued or school-issued photo ID.
    • Social Security number (for U.S. citizens) for identification purposes (optional). If students provide their number, it may appear on their AP score report.
    • If applicable, the SSD Student Accommodation Letter, which verifies that the student has been approved for a testing accommodation such as Braille or large-type exams.

    What Students Cannot Bring Into The Exam Room:

    • Bags or Backpacks, please leave such items in your locker or in your car.
    • Electronic equipment (cell phone, smartphone, smartwatch, earpods or other wearable technology, laptop, tablet computer, etc.), portable listening or recording devices (MP3 player, iPod®, etc.), cameras or other photographic equipment, devices that can access the internet, or any other electronic or communication devices.
    • Scratch paper; notes can be made on portions of the exam booklets.
    • Watches that beep or have an alarm.
    • Computers (unless this has been pre-approved as an accommodation by the College Board Services for Students with Disabilities office prior to the exam).
    • Reference guides, keyboard maps, or other typing instructions.
    • Earplugs
    • Clothing with subject-related information.
    • Food or drink (unless this has been pre-approved as an accommodation by the College Board Services for Students with Disabilities office prior to the exam). 

    AP Calculator Policy

    Calculators can be used on all or some parts of the AP Exams approved by College Board.  For a list of AP Exams where calculators are allowed and a listing of approved calculators, please visit the AP Calculator Policy

    Beginning in 2018, for the AP Biology Exam, students may now use a four-function (with square root), scientific, or graphing calculator.

    • Students should check the list of approved graphing calculators; bring only approved models.
    • Students can bring up to two calculators. They should bring calculators they are familiar with that are in good working order. Calculators may not be shared.
    • Calculator memories do not need to be cleared before or after the exam.

    Testing Conflicts

    • If there are conflicts with the AP Exam schedule, please see Dina Craft in room 107 or call the AP Office, 415-945-3601, before the end of the registration period. There are VERY LIMITED circumstances under which the College Board or Redwood HS will approve a student for an alternative late testing date.  Students cannot take two exams at the same time and Redwood HS will decide which exam a student will take first and which exam will be taken during the late testing window. This year’s late testing window, as set by College Board is May 22rd through May 24th.
    • If approved, an additional $50 late testing fee may apply.

     

    AP Exam Proctor Volunteers 

    Redwood High School is looking for volunteers to proctor AP Exams during the first two weeks of May (May 6th through May 17th).

    Working in collaboration with members of the administrative team and classified staff, AP Exam proctors will help create a testing environment that will support students during their AP Exam.  AP Exam proctors may be parents, substitute teachers, retired teachers, or other professionals.  

    • Retired teachers may serve as a proctor for exams in a subject area other than those in which they taught.  
    • An individual may not proctor an AP Exam in the year in which an immediate family or household member may be taking the exam.  In other words, a parent cannot proctor the AP Environmental Science Exam if their son/daughter is currently taking the AP Environmental Science course.  They can sign up for all other AP Exams.
    • Parents need not have a current student taking an AP course to proctor an AP Exam.

     

    Those interested can sign up for one or more AP Exam sessions by using the following link:
