    Each year, nearly two-thirds of EHS students and a growing number of 9th graders enroll in one or more AP courses. The AP exam in May is not part of a course grade, nor is it a requirement of the course.
    Students may take most AP exams without taking the course. Using test prep books and other means, some students study a subject independently and take the AP exam. College Board provides free online practice exams that will help students gauge if they are ready.

    AP Exam Schedule

    This schedule shows the exams that the Edina Schools will offer in May. AP testing dates and times are set by College Board; schools cannot alter these. Exams begin as soon as possible after 8:00 am or after 12:00 pm, but must begin within one hour of that time.

    Why Take AP Exams?

    Stand Out in College Admissions

    Deciding to take an AP course lets colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. When admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they know that what you experienced in a particular class has prepared you well for the challenges of college. Taking AP is a sign that you’re up for the most rigorous classes your high school has to offer.

    Earn College Credits

    By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major. AP can transform what once seemed unattainable into something within reach.

    Check out specific colleges’ guidelines on accepting AP scores for credit and placement by searching our AP Credit Policy database.

    Skip Introductory Classes

    If you already know your preferred college major, taking a related AP course and earning a qualifying score on the AP Exam can help you advance and avoid required introductory courses – so you can move directly into upper-level classes and focus on the work that interests you most.

    Even taking an AP Exam unrelated to your major – whether or not you know what you want to major in – can place you beyond your college’s general education requirements. This opens up additional time on your schedule, enabling you to do a second major or minor, take exciting electives, or pursue additional interests.

    Build College Skills

    Taking an AP course builds the skills you'll need throughout your college years. You give your mind a rigorous workout while polishing up your time management and study skills. You also get better at handling challenging issues and problems, with the support of your AP teachers. AP courses let you know what to expect during the next phase of your educational journey, and help you build the confidence to succeed.

    Getting Your Scores from College Board

    Students must create an online College Board account to access their scores. They can send their scores to colleges using the AP Automated Score Reporting Service: https://apscore.collegeboard.org/scores

    To get your AP test scores, call College Board at 1-888-308-0013 (toll free) or 1-609-771-7366, 24 hours a day. Students will need the Edina High School code, 240708, and their AP number given out at pre-administration, or it can be found in their AP Student Pack if kept after their last exam. Students can also use their Edina six-digit identification if they entered it on their answer sheet.

    Call College Board customer service with any problems: 1-877-274-6474.

    Edina's School Code

    Edina's school code is 240708. This is different from a student's six-digit ID, found on the school identity badge. The school code is required when setting up an account with College Board to access scores. The student's six-digit ID number is helpful as a backup if the username is forgotten and the student entered it as part of their contact details.
