What time do AP exams usually start?

Could someone tell me what time AP exams typically begin? I'm trying to plan my schedule for the exam days so I'm not rushing in the morning or anything.

Hey there! AP exams usually start at 8:00 AM local time for the morning exam session and then there's an afternoon session that typically begins at 12:00 PM local time. It's great that you're planning ahead – you definitely don't want to be rushing on exam day. I always advise students to aim to arrive at least 30 minutes early. This way, you have some buffer time in case of unexpected delays and can settle in without stress.

Sometimes schools have their own process and it could cause slight adjustments to these times, so make sure to double-check with your teachers or the AP coordinator at your school. Plus, nothing beats being well-rested, so try to get a good night's sleep before the exam, and eat a healthy breakfast that morning to keep your energy up. Good luck with your exams!
