AP Exam Registration was held in March. The Exam Ordering Deadline was Tuesday, March 23rd. The fee for each exam is $91 dollars. Registration forms and payment should be turned in to Mr. Schulien in the Counseling Office before school, at lunch, or after school.
The AP Program is collaboration between motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since 1955, the AP Program has enabled millions of students to take college-level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school. Each AP Exam has a corresponding AP course and provides a standardized measure of what students have learned in the AP classroom. AP Exams are rigorous, multiple-component tests in 37 subjects that are administered at high schools each May.
Each AP Exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem-solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. The modern language exams also have a speaking component, and the AP Music Theory Exam includes a sight-singing task. Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, with 5 indicating a student who is extremely well qualified to receive college credit and/or advanced placement based on an AP Exam grade. To reduce the time students spend completing their answer sheets on exam day, all students are required to participate in a Pre-Administration which is held in mid-April.
