AP EXAM REGISTRATION: CHARTING A PATH
At Antelope High School, we ask all AP students to commit to taking the course exam to boost their chance of earning a score that translates to college credit. Through extensive research, College Board and representatives for the Advanced Placement Program found that students who register for exams in the fall term instead of the spring term increased their scores of 3 or above across all significant groups.

What This Means for Students
The AP experience will largely remain the same—students will still sign up for classes at the same time, and exams will still be administered in May—but there are a few changes they’ll notice throughout the 2019-20 school year.
Students will sign up for AP Exams in the fall. We will provide directions on how to register, and we will place the exam order for your student. If a class doesn’t start until after the fall deadline, we will provide additional registration information for students taking AP courses during the spring term.
The exam fee and the fee reduction haven’t changed for the 2019-20 school year, but College Board is introducing two new fees—one for late registration and another for canceling the exam. These fees encourage students to commit to the exams early and stay engaged throughout the year, increasing their chances of earning college credit.
