AP Exam Information

AP Exam season is almost here! From May 6-17, Green Level High School will is hosting 1,643 students taking over 4,393 Advanced Placement exams with the hopes of gaining college credits with successful exam scores. While this time comes with excitement, showing what a student has worked on in their AP class, it can also come with challenges. Please help your child balance academics with self-care - especially with sleeping well, eating healthy meals, and getting prepared. It's almost time to show what they know!


What do I need to know?

  • Emails:  Each student will get an email full of information the day before their scheduled exam. The email will go to the email address that is in the AP Classroom so please have them check both WCPSS student email and personal email boxes. This email will have locations, reminders, prohibited items, and links to so much more. 
  • On-Time:  Please make sure students are on time - 7:25 am for morning exams and 11:30 am for afternoon exams, or they will miss the opportunity to sit for the exam. 
  • Transportation:  The exam administration window can be up to four hours so please have transportation arrangements for the afternoon exams as buses will not run late for AP students - students will contact parents when exams are complete - no student can leave an exam early. 
  • $40 Fee?  AP exams follow CollegeBoard policy which is more strict and restrictive.  If a student does not choose to take their AP exam, CollegeBoard charges a fee of $40 for a canceled exam.
  • Attendance:  Students will be marked excused while they are in testing. If it is a morning exam, they are excused absent from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd period classes with the expectation to attend 4th period. If it is an afternoon exam, students are expected to be present in 1st and 2nd period and excused absent for 3rd and 4th. If students have back to back exams, one in the morning and afternoon of the same day, they need to pack a lunch to eat between the exams - they will not have time to leave campus for lunch - and their second exam will not start without them. CollegeBoard policy states students can take two exams in one day.
  • AP Study Resource:  Pranav Gadiraju, senior at GLHS, created a website to help GLHS students prepare for their AP exams.  Please check out which contains MCQs (from the CED and public practice tests), FRQS (from past years), exam information, helpful videos, and a college credit tool.
  • Questions? If you have additional questions about AP exams, please see our AP Exam Administration website (this includes the full AP exam schedule, what to bring/not to bring, sample emails, what to expect on test day, and more) or contact our AP Coordinator and Dean of Students, Hamilton Roberts at

Counselors handle a caseload by last name so please refer to the Student Services tab on the website for who to contact.

There is a hard deadline for changes of May 31 by 3pm - after this date, we will start the process of preparing for schedules to be made in the summer. Please make sure to request any changes prior to this date - as the course correction window when we return in August is not guaranteed. We build the master schedule based on requests, so this is how your child has the best chance of getting their course selections. Thank you for your understanding!
