Ok, so I don't know how you guys reg for your selfstaudy APs. Cuz my school dont allow me to take the exam without taking the test. So I had to called CB. But I waited so long and no one ans! Is there a better way? Should I just go directly to CB office located at NY (Columbus Circle is I am not mistaken). Because I do not have time during the school day to call CB since I'll be @ school. BTW, I am even willing to pay ppl to do these nasty paper work. Any suggestion?

    On the CB website, it stated that the person should call CB before March 1.

    What do you mean that your school doesn't allow you to take the exam without taking the test?? What does that mean? What test are you talking about?
    Ask your school for a list of nearby AP Coordinators that you can contact about taking your exam at their school. If your school can't provide you with this, then call CB. Try several times, I know there's a wait, but just keep trying.

    The thing is no school in NYC offers

    Psychology
    Calculus BC
    Chinese
    Statistics
    Physics B
    U.S. Gov and Politics
    Comparative Government and Politics
    Macroeconomics
    Microeconomics
    Human Geography

    Do you know any school in other state that offers outside student AP exams?

    I really don't believe this fact. Your area should have an ap coordinator for you to contact and they will set you up with someone

    I called AP service 3 times, they did give me a list of schools. But 80% of the schools did not pick up their phone. Others simply do not offer AP exams for outside students. Only one school offers Government and AB calculus (but I want BC).

    Hmm well I just asked my school to register for me, and one of the counselors are proctoring me? And I'd recommend going to a school in-person:P
