• Final exam exemptions - ALL grade levels

    As of April 2022:

    CVHS spring semester final exam exemptions are for all students in grades 9 - 12 who have average of 85 or higher and no more than 3 unexcused absences in that class. Excused absences will not affect final exam exemption qualification for the spring 2022 only.

     

    Expectations:

    • Students who are exempt must be in attendance on the day of the final exam. Students must be here for attendance purposes.
    • If a student is absent on the day of the final exam, then the student must make up the final exam. Absence from the final exam voids the exemption.

    Clarification regarding absences: UNEXCUSED absences are counted per period.  So, if you have two unexcused absences in your 3rd period class, you still qualify for the exemption based on absences. If in doubt, ask your teacher.  Each teacher will look at the number of unexcused absences you have in that teacher’s class, not the overall number of absences throughout the day.

     

    You are required to take your AP exams.

    If you are absent on the day of the exam, you must contact Ms. Matsu (mmatsu@houstonisd.org) to schedule a late AP exam. You will not automatically be rescheduled if you are absent. If you do not take your AP exam, you will LOSE your final exam exemption for that class.

    An absence excuse note will not reinstate your lost exemption status. If you are not present for your AP exam, you have lost your exemption in that class.

    You must come to school and take your AP exam.  If you are not happy with your performance, you may cancel your score. Cancellation forms will be available. You may also visit this website to download and fill out a cancellation form.  Forms must be mailed to the College Board by June 15. You can mail them or you can turn them into Ms. Matsuto mail.

    OLD Information:

    Current information as of 3/26/21 -- subject to change

    Final Exam Exemptions will apply to all students in all grades in all courses (not just pre-AP or AP) if they meet both of the following criteria:

    • At least an 85 average in the course (cycles 4, 5 and 6 averaged)
    • No more than three (3) total absences (excused and unexcused combined) in the spring semester for the class. Absences are per class (i.e. a student can be exempt from one course but not another based on absences in that particular period)

    Expectations:

    • Students who are exempt must be in attendance on the day of the final exam. Students must interact with their teachers as they always have for attendance purposes.
    • If a student is absent on the day of the final exam, then the student must make up the final exam. Absence from the final exam voids the exemption.

     

    Final exam exemptions are for all grades 9 – 12. They apply to all qualified students and are not at teacher discretion. If a final exam is given earlier than the week of finals, students can still be exempt. If the grade goes into the final exam category/column, then the student can and should be exempt if they qualify.
