    Where do I get an admission ticket?

    What may I bring with me to the exam room?                     

    • Current picture ID
    • A calculator, if applicable and batteries
    • May use a stopwatch but it may not have an alarm (even if on a watch) that sounds
    • May bring water and snacks (labeled with student’s first/last name) for breaks or between exams
    • May NOT bring into the exam room: any type of backpack or bag, including purses; NO electronic communication device ie: iPods, MP3 players, smartwatches, cell phones, iPad, etc. NO highlighters. 

    When do I need to report to the testing room?

    • Exams starting @ 12:00pm, students need to arrive no later than 11:45am; exams will begin promptly at 12:00pm
    • Anyone arriving late will not be allowed to test (some exams have 200-300 students, it is imperative everyone is on time and arrives early)
    • Students taking 2 exams in one day (morning and afternoon) need to bring a sack lunch to eat between test sessions 

    How do I know when the exam is?

    What if I have more than one exam scheduled for the same day and same time? What if I have two exams scheduled on the same day?

    • College Board makes provisions for students who would like to register to take two exams that are scheduled at the EXACT same time and date. Please email jill.coates@southlakecarroll.edu
