All AP Exams Will Now Be Administered Online May 2020

Last updated April 16, 2020

College Board, the organization that administers all AP exams, has announced that all AP exams--normally offered in schools--will now be conducted online. This means you’ll be able to take each AP exam at home (or anywhere you’re able to reliably access the internet).

Here’s what you need to know: 

When will I take my exam?

  • AP exams are scheduled by subject, starting May 11 through May 22.
  • If you are unable to take your exam at the scheduled time, make-up test dates will be available June1 through June 5.
  • Course-specific exam information, such as features and timing, can be found at

How will the AP exams work online?

  • Each AP exam will be a 45 minute free-response test that you can complete at home.
  • This year’s exams were designed as open book/open note exams, meaning questions will require you to apply concepts from your AP class in new ways.
  • Students can complete the exam on any device they have access to - computer, tablet, or smartphone - and can either type their responses or write them by hand and submit a photo.

Where can I get help studying for the AP exams?

What if I decide not to take the test?
