Registration and fees for AP exams are due much earlier this year due to changes from the College Board.
The deadline to complete the form attached to this news post, and submit the required fees for AP Exams is Friday, November 8th. Students must also "Join" their AP Section and indicate that they are taking the exam. More information is available on the college board website, HERE.
- The fee is $94 for EACH AP exam. Make checks payable to “FRCS”. Use one check for all exams (1 exam $94, 2 exams $188, 3 exams $282, etc.). Students who are eligible for fee reductions should contact me regarding fees. Reductions have changed due to federal/state funding.
- Neatly print the full name of each exam you are taking below. Your form and payment are due to the High School Main Office by the end of the day Friday, November 8th. This is a firm deadline. There is a late fee of $40 per exam after November 8th.
All students taking an AP exam will prepare throughout the year. Teachers will be reviewing both test content and test strategy in class. Practice exam questions are available through the College Board. Students can also choose to take a free practice exam at FRCS on Saturday, March 28th. Breakfast will be at 8:30 a.m. The practice exams will begin about 9:00 a.m. and end approximately 12:15 p.m. Teachers may make alternate arrangements, so students taking more than one AP course should coordinate with their teachers about taking other exams separately.
AP exams will be given between May 4th and May 15th during school. The test dates and times are scheduled by the College Board. The most recent AP Bulletin available from College Board explains AP exams in detail and is available HERE. Teachers will discuss the testing schedule and exam expectations in class. AP exams may allow students to earn college credits (with a qualifying score). Students usually take an AP exam after completing an AP course; however, any student can take an AP exam. Additional information is available HERE. As in past years, testing will be off-site.
Students approved for College Board testing accommodations will receive them for the AP exam. If you have an IEP or a 504 plan and have not received approval from the College Board for testing accommodations, please notify me if you would like to submit an application to the College Board.
Please contact AP Coordinator Dave Elsner with any questions at extension 272 or email to email@example.com.
