Two Days Before Each Exam

Confirm that registered students have located their e-ticket.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. If a student hasn't received their exam e-ticket by email, they can access it through theirstudent account on My AP. E-tickets are nontransferable and shouldn't be shared with anyone. Students who haven't been receiving College Board emails still have time toconfirm their contact information.

Remind your students to complete theAP Exam Day Checklistfor each exam they're taking.Students should complete this checklist and keep a printed or handwritten copy with them for reference during testing. Completing the checklist will help students feel confident they're set up for success.

On Exam Day

Remind students to click their e-ticket to check in 30 minutes before 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.

Ensure your students know what to do if something goes wrong.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. They should continue the exam, and if they feel at the end of the exam that the temporary disruption negatively impacted their performance, they can request approval to take the makeup exam can also request a makeup exam if they've lost too much time due to a technical problem, can't connect to their exam, or experienced some other serious disruption.

Your Advanced Placement testing access code will be sent to you via the email that you used to create your AP Central/AP Classroom account. This is the account that you use in your AP classrooms for practice questions. 

1) If you used your school email to create this account, you must change it ASAP or your testing code will not make it to you. The school blocks emails from outside platforms. 
2) If you did not use your school email you still need to verify that you have access to that account to acquire your testing codes for each class. 

You are the only person that can ensure that you have a working and accessible email on your AP Central account. 

Check out the attachment with instructions and if needed ask your AP Teacher(s) for more information.
