As of April 3, AP exams will only be offered digitally as 45-minute, primarily free response, at home exams in all subject areas except for Art. AP Art portfolios will require a reduced number of pieces.
The exams will be given May 11 – May 22. Make-up test dates will be offered for each subject June 1 – June 5. Click here to find your exam times: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap-exams/ap-exam-schedule
In late April, College Board will provide information on how to access the testing system on test day and video demonstrations so that students can familiarize themselves with the system.
More things you need to know about the changes to the APs:
- The exams will only include the topics covered through early March.
- They will be open book (this does NOT mean you should cheat and look up the answers online – it means you should can use your notes to help you answer the questions).
- Most exams will have one or two free-response individually timed questions. You will need to write and submit your answers within the time allotted for each question.
- For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long with an additional 5 minutes for uploading. You will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to set up.
- AP world language and culture exams will include two spoken tasks consistent with the current exams’ free-response questions three and four. Written responses will not be required (more to come on this).
- The following courses will use portfolio submissions and will not have a separate online exam. All deadlines for these submissions have been extended to May 26, 2020, 11:59 p.m. ET:
- 2-D Art and Design
- 3-D Art and Design
- Computer Science Principles (note: this portfolio submission is best done on a laptop)
