There is VITAL information that you MUST adhere to in order to take your AP exams this year:

2020 AP Exam Day Checklist (.pdf/526 KB): 

Options to continue preparing for your exams include:


Explainer Videos: New videos are available to give students quick, easily accessible information about their test day experience, what they need to do to prepare, exam security, and more. Explore the playlist.

In order to fully understand & be ready for the exams, please plan to participate in the AP Exam Demo (available May 4): AP students should use the clickable exam demo to practice the different ways to submit their exam responses. The demo will help students confirm that their testing device will be able to access and run the online exam. If they can’t access the demo, the final slide of the Testing Guide can help them troubleshoot. The sample content in the demo will be the same for all users and isn't a practice exam. We’ll send educators and students an email to remind them when the demo is available. Please encourage your students to take this important preparation step.

Online AP Classes and Review Sessions prep week: The week before exams, online AP classes will focus on the exam day experience and sample exam questions.

Dear AP Student,

As you most likely already have seen in the email sent out to all AP Exam examinees directly by The College Board on April 3, 2020, the AP exams WILL be administered in May 2020, but in a completely new and revolutionary AT HOME and ONLINE format.

We encourage you and your family to sit down and carefully review the information available on The College Board website at 

(And we recommend you bookmark the link above so you can easily monitor it in the next month for more updates and information as The College Board works to modify the delivery of your AP exam(s).)

A few key items we want to make sure that you review ASAP:

  • Your MyAP Account email address - College Board will be communicating with students with active exams DIRECTLY through this email address. If you have not received emails from The College Board in the last two weeks, this may indicate that there is an error in the email you have on your MyAP account. 
    • Log into ASAP and navigate to "MyAP Profile" to review that the email address on file is one you ACTIVELY check and use. 
    • College Board will be sending the high security log in credentials that you will need to log into the Exam Platform to the student email address on the MyAP account. Without that log in access that will be sent by The College Board directly, you will NOT be able to take the AP exam.
  • The New and updated AP Exam Schedule of Exams  (Linked HERE)
  • The Exam Content and Format- What will be focused on for this exam has been drastically adjusted. Review the details regarding each exam's new modified focus as well as new format (available HERE). Connect with your teachers asap!
  • Know that you will be able to take your exams on ANY internet connected device - a phone, a tablet, an iPad, a laptop, a desktop computer. More details will be released by College Board towards the end of April AND you will have an opportunity to try out the exam format and upload of material steps before exam day. Monitor  and for tutorial videos and more
  • Exams with Accommodations - if you have already been approved by College Board for accommodations on your AP exam(s), those accommodations will automatically be applied by the exam content platform (or site). The accommodations are linked via your SSD Number to your AP ID Number and will be automatic.
  • Exam Security - this is being taken VERY seriously! The College Board will be applying all the technology resources at their fingertips to maintain the integrity and security of the exams, INCLUDING sending a copy of the work your submit to your AP teacher by May 26, 2020. Review carefully the security details.
