AP Exams - May 11-22

May 01, 2020

Monday, May 11 is the first day of AP testing. We want to make sure all students are ready for their exams and are prepared to be successful. Please read to the end of this message for the full schedule of AP exams.

We have prepared an FAQ slide show to answer questions you might have about testing this year. All of this information can also be found on Oakton’s AP testing page. If you are not able to attend your scheduled exam, please contact Ms. Warehime at @email


Final reminders

Troubleshooting tips from College Board



The College Board recommends five steps to take before exam day to ensure you are ready! These are found on their website and copied below:

  1. Review your contact information. If you aren’t receiving emails from the AP program, log into My AP to see the email address you used when you registered to test.
  2. Check your tech. Choose and prepare the device and documents you’ll use. The AP Exam will only open in the latest versions of Chrome (preferred), Firefox, Safari, or Edge.
  3. Practice submitting your response. An online AP Exam demo will be available on May 4. The AP World Languages Exam App will be available by the week of May 11 and includes a practice mode.
  4. Gather what you need for each exam. Go to the checklist and download, print, or gather materials for your exams.
  5. Receive your exam confirmation and e-ticket emails. You’ll get emails with your AP ID and your exam e-ticket. This information will also be in your My AP account. On exam day, you’ll need this e-ticket to check in to your exam. You'll get a unique ticket for each exam you’re registered for. You can also access your e-ticket in your student account on My AP.


Some additional important highlights and reminders include:

  • Exam format: you can use your own device to complete the exam. You need to log in 30 minutes prior to the exam's scheduled time to get set up. You can submit either by typing and uploading it or taking a picture of your handwritten response. For most exams, you'll have five minutes after the 45 minute response time to complete uploading your response. 
  • During the exam: The tests will be open note / open book and there will be consequences should you violate exam security. 
  • Accommodations: If you previously had accommodations approved by the College Board, these will automatically be applied. If you have questions, please contact Mr. Buckley at @email

What if you have an issue on the day of the test? If you have an issue on the day of the exam that temporarily kicks you out of the test, you can just log back into the test using your same ticket. Please don’t hit refresh on your browser. 

If your issue is such that you weren’t able to complete your test on the day of but you had already logged in, you need to visit cb.org/requestmakeup within 48 hours of the issue to have a new ticket emailed to you. Call centers will not be available and this request has to happen through the online form. 


The College Board website has additional information for you to access that helps answer other questions you might have. These resources include: 

Fairfax County AP Testing & Instruction FAQs have also been posted and updated as of April 28, 2020 (please scroll down to find the AP exam specific information). You can also read the FCPS News Release that was published on March 23.
