AP Testing

Dear AP Students and Parents,

This letter contains important information about the AP Exam process. This rich and rewarding experience will provide you with the tools that will serve you well throughout your college career and beyond. The AP exam, for which all students are expected to register and sit, will be offered in May 2018. Students scoring a 3 or better on an AP exam (on a scale of 1-5), may receive credit for the equivalent course at one or more of the 3,000 colleges and universities that award credit for Advanced Placement. The information below includes important details about the AP exam registration process at BMHS.


Exam Registration/Deadlines

All students seeking to take an AP exam next spring must register and pay online using the Total Registration website; paper applications are not accepted. You may access the registration website by logging into www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/070698 . 

This year’s 7-week Online Exam registration will begin on Mon, Jan 8, 2018 at 7:00 AM and end on Fri, Mar 2, 2018 at 11:30 PM.

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Mon, Jan 8, 2018 at 7:00 AM - Registration Begins
  • Sat, Feb 24, 2018 at 7:00 AM - Registrations and payments after this date will incur a $10 late fee per registration.
  • Fri, Mar 2, 2018 at 11:30 PM - Registration Ends
  • Mon, Mar 5, 2018 at 11:30 PM - Registrations that have not been paid for will be cancelled and exams will not be ordered.

Please contact Ms. Dawn Leeds, leedsd@norwalkps.org , if you would like to register for an exam not listed or have any questions.

Mandatory Pre-administration Meeting

When registering, you will be required to sign up for a pre-administration meeting. Please sign up for the correct session. Requisite paperwork will be completed during this time.

Registration Payment

Brien McMahon High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration.

The cost of each exam is $98.00. The exam fee for students who receive free/reduced lunch is $56.00. Students must be approved for a fee reduction before the registration process can be completed. Financial assistance is limited this year due to a change in the state assistance structure.  If you require further financial assistance please speak with Ms. Leeds immediately. Financial need should never stop a student from participating in the AP Exam Program at Brien McMahon.

A $10 late fee will be assessed per late exam registration. It is imperative that you adhere to the deadlines, as no extensions will be granted and the registration site will no longer be active.

Exam Calendar for BMHS

The 2018 AP Exams will be administered this year from Monday, May 7, 2018 to Friday, May 18, 2018. Only students taking exams scheduled for the same time slot may take an alternate form of a particular exam during the late-testing period. If a student tests late, there may be an additional fee, grade reports may be delayed up to a month, and the free-response booklet for that particular exam will not be available. There are no make-up exams; you must arrive on time and bring all necessary materials with you.

Late Testing

Brien McMahon offers late testing to students who have two exams at the same time, a religious holiday conflict, and disability accommodation issues or because of a school emergency. Late testing must be arranged during the regular registration period. We do not offer late testing for students who missed the 7 week registration period.
