Can you bring erasers to AP exams?

This might be a really basic question, but can we bring our own erasers to the AP exam? I want to be fully prepared and my eraser game is strong!

Hey there! It's great to see you're getting all geared up for your AP exams—a positive attitude and being well-prepared can definitely go a long way. To answer your question, yes, you can absolutely bring your own erasers to the AP exams! I totally get wanting to make sure you can cleanly erase any mistakes. Just a couple of things to keep in mind:

First, make sure the erasers are free of any notes or any possible test aids—as you know, the College Board is very strict about test security and we wouldn't want any misunderstandings.

Second, if your erasers are attached to pencils, remember that only No. 2 pencils are allowed for the multiple-choice section and any graphs you might need to draw. Mechanical pencils aren't allowed, but if you're more comfortable with them for erasing, you could bring a standard eraser for use during the test.

Lastly, it might be good to double-check with your AP Coordinator or check the AP Student Pack for any last-minute updates to the exam’s rules and regulations. Schools sometimes receive the most current exam day instructions that could specify these little details.

I remember one student I advised has a lucky eraser they've used for every major test and said it gave them confidence just knowing it was there—sometimes it's the little things that can give us an extra edge! Best of luck on your exam!
