• Dear Students,

    As you might know already, if you were not abel to complete your AP test during the regular administration, you are eligible to retake one or more of your AP exams. You should have received an email from College Board Already. Please read the information below very carefully and email me if you have any questions. (jherna21@houstonisd.org)

    Incomplete Exams

    Some students didn’t complete the exam—i.e., they started the exam but didn't submit one or all of their responses. If these students want to take a makeup, we're offering a final opportunity to test from August 24–31. Here's some important testing information:

    The exam schedule is available on our website.

    Only students with incomplete exams will be eligible to test.

    We understand that this timing may overlap with classes at some schools, and we encourage schools to support student exam-taking.

    There are no further 2020 exam opportunities, regardless of circumstance.

    Eligible students will automatically receive an e-ticket two days before their exam. If a student decides not to test, they can simply ignore the e-ticket.

    Resources for Students

    The 2020 AP Testing Guide (.pdf/10.7 MB) and overview video: The comprehensive guide will walk your students through how to prepare and the video gives a high-level overview of this year's exams.

    An exam demo: Students should use the demo to practice the different ways to submit exam responses. World language students should practice with the AP World Languages Exam App. Music Theory students should prepare their answer sheets and recording software or app.

    The required and recommended resource list for students: This details what resources they can use during their exams and how they can access them.

    The 2020 AP Exam Day Checklist (.pdf/1.56 MB): Students should complete this checklist and keep a printed or handwritten copy with them for reference during testing.

    Troubleshooting tips: If a student accidentally closes the browser, their device crashes, or they temporarily lose internet access, they can quickly click their exam e-ticket again to return to the exam.

    AP online classes and review sessions: Classes and sessions are still available on YouTube for students to review.

     

    Timing Reminders

    Two days before each exam, students will receive an email with their unique exam e-ticket that includes their AP ID. On exam day, students will use their e-ticket to access the exam. E-tickets are nontransferable and shouldn't be shared with anyone. Important note: E-tickets for these August exams won't be available in My AP, so please tell students they must use the e-ticket they receive by email.

    Students should click their e-ticket to check in 30 minutes before the exam start time. Students should allot 80 minutes for each exam—30 minutes to enter their AP ID, name, and other information, and 50 minutes to draft and submit their responses. Make sure your students know their local testing time, since each subject's exam will be taken simultaneously worldwide.
