Advance Placement Exams 2020-2021

Handsworth AP Students in Enrolling Classes:

Students enrolled in an AP course in a classroom at Handsworth will automatically be registered to write the AP exam for their course when they sign-in to their College Board Account and join their courses.  AP teachers will walk students through this process in class and provide them with the "Join Code". Students who do not want to write the AP exam for their course in May 2021, must let their teachers know by Monday, November 2, 2020 so that their exam order can be cancelled without a fee.  For those students writing their exam, please be sure to pay your fees ($150) online through your School Cash Online Account by November 1, 2020.
