ANNOUNCEMENT: OPEN AP EXAMS REGISTRATION IN 2023 – 2024 SCHOOL YEAR

About AP

College Board’s Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) offers college-level courses and exams that students can take while in high school.  Since 1955, AP has enabled millions of students to take U.S. university undergraduate-level courses and earn undergraduate degree credit, advanced placement, or both. Taking AP can help students save money and time as well as stand out to colleges. With qualifying AP Exam scores, students can earn credit and/or placement from nearly all colleges and universities in the United States and Canada — as well as many institutions in more than 100 other countries, and stand out in admissions.

AP Exams

IIG Vietnam is delighted to be Vietnam’s first test center authorized by the AP Program to administer AP Exams to all eligible students (see eligibility policies below).  

AP Exams are offered each year during the first two full weeks of May.

Most AP Exams can be taken without the corresponding AP course. Some subjects such as AP Computer Science Principles require students to be enrolled in the course in the same year they take the exam. 

Eligibility to Test

Must Be in High School (Secondary School): AP’s official policy:
Only high school-affiliated students can take AP exams, at either their own enrolled high school or at other AP-authorized high schools and test centers. The high school-affiliated cohort includes: students actively enrolled at a high school, or high school-level students who are homeschooled, participate in independent study, and/or attend virtual schools; and any actively enrolled students who may be prepared to take an AP Exam prior to the ninth grade, or recent high school graduates who need a specific AP Exam for university admission.
Additional policy set forth by IIG:

Must reside in, or are citizens of Vietnam.

Student must present an original and valid Passport or national ID (applicable for Vietnamese only) with photograph and signature. Students who cannot provide original, valid ID required by IIG Vietnam will not be admitted to test.

2024 AP Exam Schedule 

AP Exams will be administered as paper & pencil exams in person at IIG test center(s) only during: May 6–10 and May 13–17 for Regular Testing.

Early testing or testing at times other than those published by AP is not permitted under any circumstances.

Four Steps to Register Your AP Exam with IIG Vietnam

Before you start, review IIG’s registration process and policy:

  • Students must first register and pay IIG Vietnam through IIG’s website. Once payment is confirmed, you’ll receive “join codes” for each paid exam.
  • Students then must log into College Board’s My AP website to complete exam registration with AP directly.
  • Afterwards, Students must update their AP ID on IIG Vietnam’s registration page to complete the registration process.

Note:

-    Student registration personal information (name, email address, date of birth) on IIG Vietnam’s registration page must be identical with the information registered via College Board’s My AP.

-    ONLY tests that have been registered via College Board’s My AP and for which payment has been received by IIG Vietnam will be ordered.

-    If you register for an exam in My AP with a join code, but do not pay IIG Vietnam directly for the exams, or if you pay IIG Vietnam without completing exam registration in My AP, you will not be able to test.

-    Student’s registration will be deemed invalid if you do not update your AP ID with IIG Vietnam.

-    Be very careful to verify the exam subject at every step. Once registration and payment are complete, you cannot change the subject(s) chosen for the AP Exam(s).

Step 1. Register and pay IIG Vietnam for AP Exam(s).

Before you log out of My AP, locate your AP ID under ‘My AP Profile’.  You will need it for the next step below.

Follow important step-by-step instructions to complete registration in My AP here.

Step 4: Update your AP ID on your IIG registration record

Get your AP ID from My AP and add it in ap.iigvietnam.com after payment so we can verify payment with your exam and submit your exam order to the AP Program.

Follow important step-by-step instructions for this final step in here.
