    Should I take an AP Exam?

    This is a decision that may be easy or may require some individual research.  If you or your student knows where they might be applying or attending college, you can search using the link below to see what AP Exam score you would need to earn in order to receive credit, what kind of credit you would receive at a particular school, etc.  You do not have to share your AP scores with colleges, but you can potentially earn college credit if you achieve the score that they are looking for:

    ALL STUDENTS MUST BRING TO EACH EXAM: photo ID, pencils, a pen with black or dark blue ink, and calculator (for any science or math exams).  Backpacks, cell phones, and other electronic devices will not be allowed in the testing rooms, so please plan accordingly.
