Exempt Students

  1. Students who began the 9th grade in a Florida public school during the 2003-2004 school year (or entered 9th grade in a Florida public school any year after 2003-2004) and received a standard diploma from a Florida public school are exempt and may choose whether or not they wish to take the placement test.
  2. Active duty members of any branch of the United States Armed Services are exempt and may choose whether or not they wish to take the placement test.
