AP Exams

AP®: Advanced Placement Program® Exams

College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® is recognized by universities around the world  as a standard of academic excellence. Since 1955, the AP® Program has enabled millions of  students to take U.S. university undergraduate-level courses and earn undergraduate degree  credit, advanced placement, or both while still in high school/secondary school.  

Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States and Canada — as well as more than 700  universities worldwide — consider AP Exam scores for admission, and grant credit and  placement for qualifying AP Exam scores. Most universities also acknowledge course  participation, regardless of AP score, favorably in the admission process.

Students in Administration 1 should plan to sit for pen and paper exams  on the same day, time, and place, with one exception – exams originally scheduled for May 13  are now scheduled for May 17. 

Students already registered for late testing will be assigned to Administration 2 dates for the  corresponding exam. Make sure you are aware of the mode of the exam you have enrolled i.e.,  if it is pen and paper or in a digital format. Please refer to the exam schedule on AP’s website to  confirm your testing date, time, and exam format.  

Administration 3 will have mostly digital at home testing option. Students who have already  registered will be able to request to shift to Administration 3 only after approval from the AP  Test center coordinator, AP coordinator will assess the reasons with a valid proof for testing  during this window and share the decision with the student. 

Oakridge International School is currently expecting to administer all paper-only exams as  originally planned in Admin 1 and Admin 2. Registered students whose testing dates and/or  testing modes have changed as a result of the updated schedule will be provided further details about testing options and change request procedures by 7th March 2021.
