AP Students: You must read the 2020 AP Testing Guide, the Exam Day Checklist, and you must watch the AP exam walkthrough video. All three links are highlighted in red above. The 2020 AP Testing Guide provides all of the necessary information you need to know about in order to successfully take your exam.
Please be advised that you will receive an email with your e-ticket for each exam that you are registered to take two days before each exam. On exam day, you’ll need this e-ticket to check in to your exam. You can also access your e-ticket in your MY AP student account by going to myap.collegeboard.org. You will also receive an exam confirmation email on May 4 with your AP ID and a list of the exams you’re registered for.
Each subject’s exam will be taken simultaneously worldwide. Double check with your AP teacher or parents to identify and calendar in our local testing time under Pacific Time.
You will also be able to Practice Submitting Your Response online through an AP Exam demo that will be available on May 4 at cb.org/apdemo. It will allow you to practice the different ways to submit your responses. If you can't connect to this demo from your planned testing device, you will not be able to access the real exam on test day. Tips on how to update your browser are available in the 2020 AP Testing Guide. Internet Explorer will not work and Google Chrome is the recommended browser to use.
Beginning the week of May 11, if you’re taking world language exams like Spanish, French, or Japanese, download the AP World Languages Exam App. Before your exam, use the app’s practice mode to become familiar with its features, test your technology's compatibility, and check the quality of sound in your intended exam location. After you practice using the app, you must close it on your device before testing.
Once again please spend about 30 minutes to thoroughly read through the 2020 AP Testing Guide and then complete the Exam Day Checklist for each exam you are registered to take. If you have specific questions, please reach out to your AP teachers or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exams will be given from May 11–22.
Makeup test dates will be available for each subject from June 1–5.
Students can take exams at home or in schools, if they reopen.
Each subject's exam will be taken on the same day at the same time, worldwide.
Most exams will have one or two free-response questions, and each question will be timed separately. Students will need to write and submit their responses within the allotted time for each question.
Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They'll be able to type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phones.
For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, plus an additional 5 minutes for uploading. Students will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to get set up.
Certain courses—Art and Design: 2D; Art and Design: 3D; Computer Science Principles; Drawing; Research; and Seminar—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. Teachers and students may receive separate course-specific communications.
Students taking world language and culture exams will complete two spoken tasks consistent with free-response questions 3 and 4 on the current AP Exam. Written responses will not be required. We'll provide additional details in the coming weeks to help students prepare.
Exam Scores and College Credit
As usual, students' work will be scored by our network of college faculty and AP teachers, and will be reported on a 1–5 scale. We anticipate releasing scores as close to the usual July timeframe as possible.
We're confident that the vast majority of higher ed institutions will award college credit as they have in the past. We've spoken with hundreds of institutions across the country that support our solution for this year's AP Exams.
Special Benefit for Teachers
College Board will provide every AP teacher with their students' responses from the online exams by May 26.
