Bulletin for AP Students and Parents 2007-08

AP Student Planning Calendar 2008


Important Deadlines and Reminders

Think about the exams you plan on taking in May.

  • Have you taken a practice AP® Exam? Review released free- response questions on www.collegeboard.com/apstudents to familiarize yourself with the exam. Complete released exams are available for sale on store.collegeboard.com. Many AP teachers conduct practice sessions with released exams to help students get a feel for the actual AP Exam administration.

  • Will you need testing accommodations? If so, see page 9. If you haven’t already submitted your Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Eligibility Form, be sure to talk to your SSD Coordinator about the accommodations you’ll need for the May exams. For more information, visit www.collegeboard.com/ssd. Note these deadlines:

    • February 22: By this date, your school will need to submit a complete SSD Eligibility Form for you if your request requires Documentation Review.

    • March 7: By this date, your school will need to submit a complete SSD Eligibility Form for you if you do not need to submit documentation for review. (See the Eligibility Form for more details.)

  • Are you homeschooled or do you attend a school that doesn’t offer AP Exams? In either case, review the instructions on pages 8 and 9, and note these deadlines:

    • March 1: Deadline to contact AP Services for a list of local AP Coordinators at whose schools you might be able to test.

    • March 15: Deadline to contact AP Coordinators identified by AP Services.


Take AP Exams, which are offered May 5–9 and 12–16.

  • Do you usually carry your cell phone, PDA, pager, MP3 player, or any other electronic device to school? For reasons of exam security, these items are not allowed in the testing room. Don’t risk having them confiscated.

  • Do you know your AP number? Your AP number is located in your AP Student Pack, which you’ll receive from your AP Coordinator or proctor. It links all of your exam materials to you. On exam day, you will be asked to label your exam materials with your AP number. Tip: Keep a copy of your AP number label or write your number somewhere safe, so that you can find it later.


Reread this bulletin. It’s especially important to review the exam security information and what to bring and what not to bring to the exam (see page 8). Continue to work hard in your AP courses and to prepare for your AP Exams.

  • Are any of your AP Exams scheduled for the same date and time? Check the exam schedule on the back cover. If you have a conflict, ask your AP Coordinator for information about taking one of the exams during the late-testing period.

  • Is your calculator appropriate for use on the exams in Calculus, Chemistry, Statistics, or Physics? Check www.collegeboard.com/apstudents for a list of AP-approved calculators.


Students receive their AP Exam grades by mail in July. Here are some deadlines to remember for ordering your AP Exam grades and exam materials.

  • June 15: If you want to withhold one or more of your exam grades or change the grade report recipient for your 2008 AP Exams, AP Services must receive your request in writing by this date. Grades may be canceled at any time, but if you prefer that your grades for 2008 not be sent to the college you indicated on your answer sheet, you must notify AP Services by this date.

  • July 1: Grades by Phone available.

  • September 15: Deadline for ordering your free- response booklets from 2008.

  • October 31: Deadline for requesting the Multiple- Choice Rescore Service.
