Arrange AP Exams on a rotating schedule

This petition had 34 supporters

AP exams are given in the same order every year. This makes it difficult  for students of AP French to do their best because the French exam is always given in the afternoon following the AP calculus exam. If the calculus exam runs over time, which it often does, it affects whether or not the calculus student will be able to take his or her French exam. Many of the highest achieving French students are in other AP classes. Having the French exam immediately following the calculus exam causes some of our brightest students to be physically and mentally exhausted, overly stressed, and anxious. Furthermore, the current exam schedule causes problems for other students because some of them must wait for students taking the calculus exam to finish, thereby causing them to start their French exam late. In other cases AP calculus students were not allowed to take the French exam they had signed up for because the calculus exam ran over time. The current exam schedule therefore causes unnecessary burden to students in other AP classes, students not in other AP classes, and their teachers.
