We would like to give you the following updates regarding the changes to AP exams this year. AP is supporting schools and students through remote learning and optional at-home testing. Please read the information below carefully, as there are changes to the amount of time and method in which exams are administered.  In addition, if you do not choose to take the exam you will receive a full refund.


AP is providing free remote learning resources to students

  • Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. Click here for free remote learning resources and specific exam topics.

AP is providing optional at-home testing:

  • The exams will be 45 minutes and free response questions only.

  • For students who registered by March 6, students will have two exam dates to choose from. 

  • College Board will have more information for students with approved accommodations at a later date.

  • The full exam schedule will be available by April 3.

  • Students will be able to take the exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.

Test security is a concern.

  • The exam questions are designed and administered in ways that prevent cheating; College Board will use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams.

Students already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge.

  • Students may cancel exams by logging into Total Registration and canceling their exam(s). A full refund will go back to the original payment method.
