Advanced Placement Testing at MCHS

Madison Central High School

2019 Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Information

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Madison Central High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn student’s college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2019 AP exams, students at Madison Central High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.

This year each AP exam costs $98.00. Madison Central High School desires that every student be able to take his or her AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance will register online, but will check the Free/Reduced lunch box in order to be eligible for exams at no cost. This is based on the completion of the HIF form and if a student was approved for free/reduced lunch.

Online Exam registration will begin on Thursday, Nov 1, 2018 at 12:00 pm and end on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 12:00 PM. In order to register, students should click on the link provide on the school website or visit www.TotalRegistration.net/AP/182278 to register.

To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. We know that parents may desire to register their students for exams. We strongly recommend that parents and students are both present while registering to ensure that the correct exams are ordered.

This year the scantron answer sheets will be filled out by Total Registration.  Therefore, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT ALL OF THE INFORMATION ON YOUR REGISTRATION FORM IS CORRECT as the information will come from the website.

Madison Central High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a credit card or debit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.
