Upcoming SOL and AP Tests

April 04, 2018

Testing season is upon us. SOL testing begins May 7th and will close out May 24th, save for make-ups and retakes. AP Testing also begins on May 7th and will close out May 18th. Students should see their teachers concerning testing times and locations. Specific test assignments are available on the OHS website.

For students taking an SOL: Please report directly to your testing location. AM testing sessions begin at 8:10 am, and PM testing sessions begin at 11:18 am. Leave your backpack, cell phone, and any wearable technology in your locker to avoid disrupting the testing environment. You may, however, bring your own pencil and a book to read that is irrelevant to the SOL test you are taking. Please get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast because you will need to focus and do your best in order to earn required credits for graduation.  Don’t hesitate to see your teacher or counselor for advice on how to prepare for the exams. All SOLs are untimed tests, so you may have as much time as you need to complete each part.

For students taking an AP Exam: Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of your exam so you are ready to start the exam on time. If you are late, you will not be able to sit for the exam or for a makeup. If you miss an exam without an excuse, you will be charged a $15 unused exam fee. Come prepared with any necessary materials you need for the exam, including pencil, pen, and/or calculator. ! Make sure to leave anything else – including your cell phone! – in your locker or at home. You cannot bring it into the testing room. Make sure to get a good night’s rest before the exam. Your teacher can help guide you with what is necessary for each specific exam.  Please see your counselor if you have any questions about AP testing.
