AP® Program announced changes to the 2020 AP Exam
College Board has expressed their commitment to providing support, flexibility, and solutions to AP Exams. AP Online Exam schedule has now been released, see below for updates on test date.
Online Exam testing dates Monday, May 11, 2020 through Friday, May 22, 2020
Online Exam Make-up tesing dates in Monday, June 1, 2020 through Friday, June 5 2020
Makeup Testing June 1 - 5
Students approved for makeup exams are eligible for 2020 exception testing if:
- They need to take two makeup exams that are scheduled at the same time.
- They had technical issues while testing.
- They experienced a disruption while testing.
- Illness interfered with their testing.
Other reasons for eligibility for exception testing not specified here may be recognized as valid.
Students may also request exception testing if their teacher identified an unintentional submission issue when viewing their copy of the student’s response (e.g., blank, missing, or blurry pages) from the primary testing window.
Note: Being unsatisfied with an exam response is not a valid reason for a student to request makeup testing.
If students used the backup email submission process but their exam remains incomplete (e.g., because submission requirements were not met), College Board will automatically send these students e-tickets for exception testing.
AP Exception Testing Request Form will open on June 1 12 PM - Sunday June 7 5 PM.
