Waitlisted Students:  Please note that all Paly students will be waitlisted. If you are waitlisted, you will not have an option to make payment until you are approved and taken off the waitlist. Once approved, you will receive an email from Total Registration to make payment.

Special Notes About AP Chinese:  ALL students registering for the AP Chinese exam will automatically be waitlisted. Gunn students enrolled in our AP Chinese class have first priority, followed by Gunn students not enrolled in the course by grade level seniority.

Gunn freshmen — Please note that due to the high demand of the AP Chinese exam, it is unlikely that you will be able to take the test here
at Gunn.

Capacity Limitations — AP Chinese:

Due to capacity limitations, some students can expect to test on the late-testing dates. You will be notified of your testing date. Late testing dates include:

             AP Chinese Language & Culture — Thursday, May 21 at 12:00 pm

We are asking that all students arrive at their exam location at 7:30 AM for 8:00 AM exams, and 11:30 AM for 12:00 PM exams. Students who have back-to-back exams will need to be aware of time, and we ask that they make their best effort to get to their next exam quickly. We will be starting our morning exams promptly to give our back-to-back exam takers ample time to get to their next exam. We will not be able to accept late students once an exam has started.

The following videos were made to help prepare students for exam day and were shown during morning announcements.
