AP Testing  Update #2

Please take a moment to read this entire Updated AP Information Google Doc that I have prepared for you. All of the information on here is important for you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

The most common questions we have been asked are:

  1. I know that the exams are online now, but how will I know when to take the exam?
    1. College Board will send out an email with a Credential Link/Code that will tell you how to take your exam. You must be logged in and signed in, ready for your code, 30 minutes before your exam. Please be prepared and note that this credential link will be sent to the email associated to your College Board account. If you do not wish to receive the credential link on that email address, then you should update your account ASAP
  2. Can I get a refund for my exam(s)? How does that work?
    1. Yes - you can get a refund for any of your exams. However, two things must happen. First, you must complete and submit this Refund Form by April 30th. Secondly, you must not click on the Credential sent by College Board for your AP Exam(s) that you wish to get a refund from.  For example, if a student no longer wishes to take AP Physics, then they should not click on the credential link for the Physics exam. Thus, the student will not take the exam and will get a refund issued after the exams when College Board confirms that the student did not take the exam.

 

Update #1

As students get ready for AP testing, we know there are several questions about the test itself, as well as the benefits of taking the test. All students signed up for AP exams are encouraged to continue to prepare for and take their scheduled AP test. More information on the exams and exam dates will be available from College Board on April 3. Your IUSD teachers and staff will support you in ensuring you have everything you need to take the exam.

College Board shared that colleges are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked this year to earn. For decades colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.

College Board is providing a number of free test preparation resources, including free AP Review Classes. Please visit these links for more information:
