IMPORTANT REMINDER for ALL AP/AT STUDENTS: If you have issues during your test (you become sick, internet goes down, sibling distraction, you receive error messages, submissions fail to upload, etc.), you can fill out an incident/exception form and apply to take the June make-up test. You MUST do that within 48 hours of your May test date. The form can be found HERE.
