Advanced Placement at Marshfield High School


    The College Board is changing when students will order AP Exams for the May 2020 administration.  College Board research has shown that students are more engaged and likely to earn a score of 3 or higher on the AP Exam when they registered in the fall for AP Exams.  Please see below for important information on what will change and what will not:

    Changes for 2019-2020:

    • Registration for AP Exams will occur online in October 2019 for yearlong AP classes. Second semester only AP classes will have exam registration at the beginning of second semester.
    • No payment due until March 2020. Students who decide to cancel an AP Exam after November 15 will be charge a cancellation fee which is determined by the College Board.
    • No pre-administration will be required, the high school will receive student ID stickers which will be placed on answer sheets.
    • More instructional supports for students
    • More access to AP student exam practice

    Won’t change for 2019-2020 AP Exam Season:

    • Cost- each AP exam for 2020 will cost $94
    • Exams will be administered in the first two full weeks of May
