Exam Conflicts

It is important that you take your AP exam on the scheduled date. However, outside conflicts may arise and students may re-schedule their exam to the College Board approved late-testing date.  Below are circumstances when late testing is allowed:

  • Athletic contest/event
  • Conflict with IB or Cambridge exam 
  • Conflict with nationally, province-, or state-mandated test 
  • Disabilities accommodations issues
  • Emergency: bomb scare or fire alarm
  • Emergency: serious injury, illness, or family tragedy
  • High school graduation
  • Language lab scheduling conflict
  • Religious holiday/observance
  • School closing: election, national holiday, or natural disaster
  • Strike/labor conflict
  • Student court appearance
  • 2 AP Exams on the same date at the same time

If you have a conflict that will prevent you from taking your AP exam at the scheduled date and time, please contact Mr. Bird no later than May 5th at 4:00 PM to re-schedule your exam. 

Unused Test Fees

AP Opt-out forms were sent home in October and had to be submitted to the Student Services Department by October 22.

Students who cancel or do not sit for an AP exam will not be charged the College Board $40 cancellation fee. The exam will count as one of the 6 exams paid for by FCPS.

For exam number 7 and beyond, a non-refundable full test fee will be charged. There is no additional financial penalty for not taking the exam.

Early Release/ Late Arrival on Test Days

In the past, many of our students who are taking morning exams have brought in parent excuses for an early release; likewise, students taking afternoon exams have come in late with notes from home. 

In order to facilitate and expedite the attendance process during the AP testing window, we are asking that you use this form if you wish to excuse your student from classes on the days when he/she will be taking AP Exams. Forms are due to Ms. King in the Attendance Office no later than Wednesday April 26th with no exceptions.  Once this form is submitted, you do NOT need to call your student in or out on an AP testing day.
