Information regarding AP testing for May 2018 has been provided to your student and their teacher in their AP class(es).  The cost for each exam is $94.00.   The registration period runs from Monday February 12, 2018 through Tuesday March 13, 2018.   Please fill out and return the appropriate registration form(s) along with your check(s).  A separate registration form and check are required for each exam.  Checks should be made payable to ‘Ledyard High School’, with the name of the test written in to the memo line.  Both the registration form and check must be turned in to either Mrs. Toppa or Mrs. Allanach in guidance by the end of school (2:30 PM) on Tuesday March 13, 2018.   NO registrations will be accepted after 2:30 pm on Tuesday March 13, 2018.  If your family meets certain income guidelines, you may be eligible for a fee reduction.  See your AP teacher or Mrs. Toppa/Mrs. Allanach for more details.  If you sign up for an exam and do not take it, you will receive a refund (minus the $13 processing fee).  Make sure you want to take the exam before you submit your payment.   

Students can visit www.collegeboard.org/apstudents for specifics related to each exam (exam descriptions, sample free response questions, scoring guidelines, study skills, test taking tips, etc.  Students who are in AP classes are strongly encouraged to take the AP exam.  Taking an AP exam can provide them with advanced standing or credit at the college they will ultimately attend.

We will be conducting a preadministration session again this year where students will be able to complete demographic information on their testing materials prior to the test day.  This allows us to streamline testing for students and lets them to “get right to business” on their designated test day(s).   Preadministration will take place on Wednesday April 28, 2018 during AIM.
