College Board outlines plans for AP Exams,
will announce testing dates on April 3

Here is a quick update regarding the College Board’s plan regarding the 2020 AP Exam Administration. There are many details to come so we strongly recommend that students do not take any action until they have all the details to make an educated decision regarding the AP Exams.

Last Friday, the College Board posted this preliminary update https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update.

Here are the highlights regarding the plan for the 2020 AP Exam Administration:
  • There will NOT be any face-to-face AP exams this year

  • Students will take AP exams at home

  • Exams will be 45 minutes

  • Exams will NOT contain multiple-choice questions

  • Exams will be administered online

  • Students will be able to take the exam on one of two separate dates to be announced by the College Board April 3, 2020

  • Exams will be assessing a reduced scope of content, content that would “typically” have been covered before March

  • Students will have the option of canceling their exam(s), and CB will waive the $40.00/exam late fee they would have charged the school
College Board will be providing additional online resources, see https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates#free-ap-classes.

Once additional details are provided by the College Board, we will contact you regarding how you will indicate whether you wish to take your exam on the first date, the second date, or if you wish to cancel. Thank you for your patience and for waiting for further instructions that will be forthcoming in April on how to proceed.
