Below you will find the schedule for each of the AP tests. It is important to note that the exam time is NOT flexible. It will still be a timed exam, but each exam will only be 45-minutes. If, for some reason, you will not be available at the listed date and time, please contact your AP teacher right away. More information will be available as we get closer to the exams. Your teachers are your best resource for updated information, but we will provide any pertinent updates on the BHS website. You can also go to https://www.collegeboard.org/ and look at their Coronavirus Updates for more information.
We highly encourage each student to remember that this is an amazing opportunity that is paid for by our district and could result in college credit and/or be used as part of your graduation demonstration.
