AP Exam Policy on Cell Phones and Other Electronic Devices

Cell phones and other electronic devices — which allow students to transmit exam questions in seconds to others around the world — are prohibited from any room in which an Advanced Placement exam is taking place and may not be used during the break. Each year, hundreds of students worldwide have their exam scores cancelled because they used a cell phone during the exam or on the break.

If a student uses electronic equipment (cell phone, smart phone, laptop, tablet computer, etc.), portable listening or recording devices (MP3 player, iPod, etc.), cameras or other photographic equipment, devices that can access the Internet, and any other electronic or communication devices in the exam room or during breaks, the device will be confiscated and the student dismissed. Thank you for helping us create a fair exam environment for all students!
