AP Exam Day Essentials: What do I absolutely need to bring to the AP Bio test?

Hey everyone, with the AP Bio exam coming up, I’m a tiny bit stressed about forgetting something important on test day. Can someone give me a checklist of the essentials that I’m not supposed to leave behind for the AP Biology exam? Also, are there any specific items for Bio that I wouldn’t need for other exams?

Hi there, it's great that you're preparing ahead for the AP Bio exam! Firstly, remember to bring your Admission Ticket, and a photo ID is crucial for verification purposes. You must have several No. 2 pencils with erasers and black or blue ink pens for any free-response sections. A College Board-approved calculator is allowed for the AP Bio exam, which isn't required for all AP tests, so make sure you have one with fresh batteries.

Additionally, bring a watch without an audible alarm to manage your time but ensure it does not have internet access or any smart features. Snacks and water are also handy for the break, but they'll need to stay in your bag during the test. Lastly, dress in layers to adjust to any room temperature and arrive early to avoid any last-minute stress. Don't worry about bringing scratch paper as it's provided. Just focus on double-checking your bag the night before, and you'll be all set. Good luck!
