Frequently asked questions

  • Are this year’s AP exams different because of the current COVID-19 pandemic?

    Currently, CollegeBoard is planning a traditional, in-person AP exam administration for May 2021. If circumstances surrounding the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic do not allow for in-person testing, an alternate solution will be found (likely involving online testing).

CollegeBoard is not currently planning to repeat this in May 2021. They anticipate a traditional, in-person exam administration this spring.
