Preadministration Session

beginning of content:

Having students complete identification information ahead of time in a preadministration session can save 30 minutes or more on exam day.

Answer Sheet Shipment

If you order preadministration materials, you will receive a shipment containing a booklet about completing the AP answer sheet and holding a preadministration session. We encourage you to share it with proctors. The booklet includes the following resources:

  • Sample AP answer sheet
  • How to complete the AP answer sheet
  • Updated answer sheet fields
  • The importance of supplying consistent identification information
  • How to hold a preadministration session
  • Preadministration instructions

Please note: A preadministration session cannot be conducted for AP Chinese, Japanese, or Studio Art.
