Attendance: Student attendance in PowerSchool will be marked “SF” (School Function) on the date and time
of the AP exam. Students will report directly to the exam room or bus location.

Two Exams on One Day: Students who are taking two tests in one day, should pack a sack lunch. They will
not have an opportunity to purchase a lunch. If students are testing at two different locations, we will wait to
start the second test until the students are present.

Off Campus Testing Information:
Many of our AP exams will be held at Ackerman Sports and Fitness Center in Glen Ellyn. Our school will
provide transportation.

Bus Boarding:  On the day of the exam, students who are testing at Ackerman will check in with an adult by
showing their school ID in front of the buses on Crescent Blvd. The buses will not wait for tardy students,
therefore students should plan to arrive at school with all required testing materials in their possession. Please
review the list below of what to bring or not to bring on the day of your test.

Exam Tips from the Advanced Placement Program
The following AP exams — Biology, English Language and Composition, European
History, Macroeconomics, U.S. History, and World History — have a 10- or 15-minute
reading period in Section II.

Here's how the reading period works and how we think it can help:
• The time allotted for the reading period is part of the overall Section II timing.
• The reading period gives students time to read the questions and any related sources
and documents (if applicable) and to plan their responses.
• We strongly encourage students to take full advantage of this time, and we think this
will lead to thoughtful, well-organized responses.
• However, should students choose to begin writing their response before the reading
period is over, they are free to do so.
