3. Students enrolled in AP courses at the Wheatley School are required to sit for, pay for and take the exam that accompanies the course. No cancellations or refunds are possible.

4. Students not enrolled in an AP course at Wheatley School may be permitted to take the AP exam. Please see Ms. Varela for a passcode to be able to register.

5. Per College Board regulations: students MAY NOT take both the AP Calculus AB and the AP Calculus BC exams in the same calendar year. In addition, only students who have completed the AP Computer Science Principles required in-class assessment due to College Board on April 30 may sit for the May exam.

7. Payment for exams may be done via credit or debit card, or by mailing in a check or money order. Directions for payment can be found at the end of the APTS online registration form as well as the follow up email sent to the parent email address provided on the form.

8. Fee reductions are possible for qualified students. If you feel you may qualify for a fee reduction, see Ms. Varela. Approval may take several days so it is critical to apply early.

Approval for fee reductions will be based on criteria established by the College Board.

10. Special accommodations for students with 504s or IEPs must be applied for and approved by College Board. For many students who have a 504 or IEP, accommodations have already been applied for and approved in the 10th grade. Check with your Resource Room Teacher/504 Coordinator to review your status. Application for accommodations takes approximately 7 weeks—your request for accommodations must be submitted by your Resource Room Teacher/504 Coordinator to College Board no later than February 19, 2018. If you do not have approval from College Board, you will not be provided accommodations.

11. Check in for morning exams will be promptly at 7:45 a.m. Afternoon exam check in will be promptly at 11:45 a.m. Exam administration will begin as soon as check in is completed so students must arrive promptly at the time check in opens. Students who arrive after the actual exam administration begins will not be admitted. No exceptions. Exams will take approximately four hours. Please notify your sports coaches of AP exam dates and times and plan accordingly. Students are not allowed to leave any AP Exam early.
