AP Exam Information

College Board released their plan to offer AP Exams virtually. This year’s AP Exams will not include questions from the final units of the course – units typically covered in March and April. In addition, the streamlined Exams will take no longer than an hour and will be doable on a mobile phone. College Board is also offering free remote learning resources for students and educators. College Board is encouraging students to wait until closer to the test date to decide, and any student already registered for an Exam can choose to cancel at no charge.

Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. 

Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.

The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3. We'll also unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam.

So that you’ll be aware, here are some additional dates and scheduled communications:

  • March 23 – an update was be sent to students.
  • March 25 – students will have access to free, live AP review lessons, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These optional, mobile-friendly classes are designed to be used alongside work that may be given by schools. 
  • April 3 – the full exam schedule including the specific free-response question types that will comprise each AP exam will be published
