College Board Update

This year College Board is providing 3 different exam sessions to accommodate in person/at home exams. Students will have the option to test on the computer at home or the computer at school. If you need a paper/pencil exam please contact Ms. Boren ( to make arrangements.

All exams will be full length exams. Digital & paper/pencil exams will be the same. The exam application includes security features to detect impersonation, plagiarism, or other cheating attempts, and restricts students from returning to answered questions or moving back and forth between unanswered questions.

World Language exams are only being offered paper/pencil at West. As a reminder, College Board has waived the cancellation fee. If you decide not to test by March 10th, you will not be charged. If you have already paid West, we can issue you a refund. Please email Ms. Boren ( if you have concerns.

Each student will need their own computer to complete the readiness steps and take their exam. This can be a personal
device or one assigned by the school. Schools should not assign the same device to multiple students. The computer must be able to maintain a charge for the duration of the exam or be plugged in, if needed. An internet connection is
required to test, but students will be able to keep testing even if their connection drops momentarily. Exams must be taken on a computer (Mac, Windows or school managed Chromebook)

To help us plan our AP exam session, please confirm which exams you are taking & your testing location (home or at school).

If you have not yet paid for your AP exams, please do so by going to and select the AP/IB tab. If you are on a fee waiver or if you have concerns covering the cost, West can help you cover 100% of the cost.

Please complete this form by end of day Monday - March 1st. Here is also a FAQ about this year's exam session.
