AP students who requested a makeup exam will be notified via email on May 28.  Makeup exams for AP Testing begin on Monday June 1st.  Students must check the AP Exam Schedule here to see when their Make Up exam(s) is offered.  Students will follow the same protocols used for May testing.  This means that student eTickets will be available via email and College Board accounts 2 days prior to their specific AP subject exam.  
 
Students need to log in 30 minutes earlier than the stated start times on the AP Exam Schedule to complete security procedures.  If students are not 30 minutes early their testing may be affected as tests will begin at the scheduled time, regardless of whether or not students are ready.
 
Prior to testing, please watch the instructional video AP 2020 Exams: Exam Walkthrough with your student.  In addition, please make sure your student is able to access and knows how to navigate the AP testing platform.  The prior link provides students a demo version released by AP College Board.  It is important that students are able to access and have familiarity with this system prior to testing, so that any issues can be resolved without affecting students on their scheduled exam date.  AP teachers will also be assisting students to get ready for testing by reviewing the  AP Testing Guide and  AP Exam Day Checklist with students.  Please make sure students have their completed AP Exam Day Checklist for each of their AP exams, as it offers clear steps that need to be completed before, during and after each exam. 
 
The testing windows are set and cannot be changed.  In order to avoid testing difficulties, please help ensure that your student has completed all necessary steps to be ready for their AP exam.  Minimizing internet activity, such as streaming services, by other family members will also help reduce issues that may occur during testing.  For minor issues during testing, students' eTickets will allow them to login again and continue taking their exam.  This is a student's last chance to test for the 2020 AP Exams, if you have any questions email Paul Jomini at pjomini@nyos.org.
