AP EXAMS - FINAL CHECKLIST FOR 2019-20
For Students Taking Makeup World Language Exams
For students taking makeup exams this week for AP Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, or Spanish Language and Culture, remember you can download the AP World Languages Exam App to the smartphone or tablet you plan to use for testing and should review the updated information on the AP website.
Students: Remember to Indicate your Free Score Send
June 20 is the deadline for students to indicate or change their free score report recipient in My AP. Remember—especially seniors—to indicate through My AP the college, university, or scholarship program you'd like to receive your free score report.
Student Request Form for Exception Testing
If a student is unable to complete an exam during this week's makeup testing window, they can submit a request form to test during the final exception testing window. Requests can be submitted using the form until June 7, 6 p.m. ET. Learn more about the policies for exception testing and the testing schedule.
Coming Next Month: Scores
Students can view their AP Exam scores starting July 15. Access is based on students' physical location (*Friday, July 17th for VA).
Dear AP Students and Parents,
Makeup AP Exams begin on June 1. Eligible students to complete a makeup exam include those who did not sit for an exam during the primary May 11-22 testing window and those who have requested and been approved to take a makeup exam. All eligible students will receive an email confirming their makeup exams on May 28 and receive an e-ticket via email for each exam two days prior to their exam. Additional information about makeup exams follows.
Makeup Exam Exceptions
In student confirmation email on May 28, they will receive instructions about what to do if they have two exams at the same time. They should take one exam on the makeup date and request to take the other one on the June 22-30 exception testing dates
Email Submission Safeguard
While the majority of students have successfully submitted their exams, we instituted a backup email submission process for browser-based exams. This option, which began on May 18, is only available for students who were unable to submit in the standard process—and they must then email their responses immediately following their exam.
These students will see instructions about how to email their response on the page that says, “We Did Not Receive Your Response.” The email address that appears on this page will be unique to each student and exam question. Email submissions will not be available for the World Language exams.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAMS (AP) OVERVIEW
ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAMS
Advanced Placement (AP) courses provide rigorous and challenging studies for highly able and potentially high-achieving students who are capable or motivated to pursue rigorous and challenging instruction. Students may enroll in individual AP courses and not in an advanced or Signature Program as a whole.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at many high schools in Stafford County in order to provide highly motivated students the opportunity to study at the college level. AP courses and teachers are approved by the College Board. Teachers of AP courses are required to develop and submit a course syllabus to the College Board. Course offerings vary at each school depending on demand and teachers. AP courses require extensive reading, writing, and lab assignments, as well as the completion of summer work. Students who wish to take an AP course will need to discuss AP enrollment criteria with their high school counselors. Students taking Advanced Placement classes are expected to stay in the course during the entire school year and are to take the AP exam in May. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent to pay the exam fee by the appropriate date. Students who score high enough on the AP exam may earn college credit. Each college or university determines their own policies on acceptance of AP credits. More information on the Advanced Placement Program is available at:
