Testing Rules

Students are expected to arrive prior to the beginning of any testing session in order to start on time. If you are late to the exam and the exam has already begun, you are not allowed to make up the exam and there are no refunds provided, per College Board regulations. 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!!!
