The College Board released news about AP testing today (3/20/20). The traditional face-to-face exam administration will not take place. For the 2019-2020 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home. Students will be able to access these exams on any device – computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP exam, and additional testing details will be available by College Board on April 3rd. The latest information is available at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update

Changes in Score Reporting: 2020

Students taking AP exams in the spring of 2020 and beyond will now need to indicate through My AP the college, university, or scholarship program they'd like to receive their free score report. Students will indicate this only through My AP and will no longer be able to provide this information on their AP Exam answer sheets. The deadline to indicate or change free score report recipients through My AP is June 20, 2020.
