CollegeBoard has changed 2020 Advanced Placement (AP) testing procedures due to the COVID-19 crisis. Highlights of the changes are:
- The exams will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
- AP Exams will be open book/open note.
- Most exams will have one or two free-response questions, and each question is timed separately. Students will need to write and submit their responses within the allotted time for each question.
- For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, and include an additional 5 minutes for uploading.
- Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They will be able to either type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phone.
Test Day Instructions – Updated May 10
- College Board asks that you log in 30 minutes prior to your exam so you have time to complete your personal information before the exam. Please set reminders and alarms for your testing time so you don’t forget to log in!
- Each student received/will receive an AP Exam Day Ticket two days prior to their test date. If they didn’t receive this email or have misplaced it, they can access their exam login information through their myAP account at myAP.CollegeBoard.org.
- We recommend you review the AP Testing Guide at your earliest convenience. It is a comprehensive list of specific tips, checklists and troubleshooting measures for test day.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our AP Coordinator, Monica Helfrich, at email@example.com or contact the AP teacher directly.
