Please verify your College Board My AP account before registering for the exam:

  • Students should log in to their College Board My AP account before registering for the AP exams. If they do not have a College Board account, they must create an account including their name, e-mail, and other information, and enter the same information when registering for the AP exam at the KAEC.
  • If a student currently has more than one account on the College Board, they should contact AP Services for Students to request account consolidation with the College Board so that they only have one AP ID.
  • If a student has previously taken AP, SAT, or PSAT, they should use an existing College Board account and not create an additional account. If they do not remember their login ID and password, they should be able to log in again by using the Self-help option on the College Board site or AP Services.

AP 2022

Advanced Placement examinations (AP exams) are exams offered by the College Board and are taken each May. Some colleges and universities in the United States grant credits or advanced placement based on AP test scores.

Korean-American Educational Commission has been administered the AP exams since May 2008 for homeschool, self-study students, or students who are unable to take the AP exams at their school.
