AP Exam Updates for the Spring of 2021
Please click on the image below to read about the College Board's modifications to the Spring 2021 AP Exams schedule and format.
The specific Elgin High School schedule for both in-person and digital AP testing is posted below.
In the first week of March, students were sent Google Forms for each AP Exam they were registered for in order to gather the following information:
- who still intended to test (for both digital and in-person, paper exams)
- who planned on coming to the building to test (only an option for the digital exam format )
- who required transportation in order to get to the building
These Forms should be completed by April 16th so that we may make necessary arrangements for social distancing, transportation routes, and safety protocols. All Forms were sent using the email address students used to create their College Board account. Students should contact their AP teacher, or Mrs. Foreman if they did not receive a Google Form for one of the exams they are registered for. Unfortunately, we are only able to provide transportation to students in the Hybrid learning groups, not the "All-Distance" learning group.
Please continue to check back here as more information is provided regarding both in-person and digital testing formats for this spring.

The following exams will be administered to students in the traditional, in-person paper* format for AP Exams. The exam date and start time for each exam are listed in the table below.
If needed, students in the hybrid groups** can request transportation to come to the building for these in-person exams.

Digital Exams for Spring 2021
The following exams will be administered to students in a digital format. For these exams, students will use their school-issued Chromebooks and access the digital testing platform that College Board will release later this spring. These digital exams can be taken at home, however, students may request to take a digital exam in the building by completing the Google Form emailed to them between 3/8 and 3/10. (These Google Forms were sent using the email address students used to create their College Board account.) Students should contact their AP teacher, or Mrs. Foreman if they did not receive a Google Form for a digital exam. Forms need to be submitted by April 16th. Unfortunately, we are only able to provide transportation to students in the Hybrid learning groups, not the "All-Distance" learning group.
The exam date and start time for each exam are listed in the table below.
