AP Exam registration is open on February 7th and closes on March 7th! Students currently taking AP Courses are strongly encouraged to take the corresponding AP exams. As in previous years, students will register online for AP Exams.
We will not hold pre-administration sessions this year (where students bubble their answer sheets with their information before the test day). Instead, when students register, the information entered online will be permanently printed on their answer sheets. This means AP Exam registration information must be entered carefully and accurately.
Here’s the link to registration instructions, registration deadlines, and the schedule and locations for 2018 AP Exams: https://tinyurl.com/nhsap2018.
