Big news on the AP front! The College Board is allowing students to take this year’s AP exams online at home. Please feel free to reach out to your tutor for help navigating this new testing landscape!
Here’s what you need to know about this year’s AP tests:
- AP tests will be shortened versions consisting of only a 45 minute free-response exam, taken online at home.
- Tests will be available on computers, tablets and cell phones; photos of hand-written responses will be acceptable.
- There will be two testing dates to accommodate a) students who want to take tests when material is still fresh, and b) students who want more time to review.
- The tests will only cover material presented through early March (for example, APUSH will only cover units 1-7, not 8 and 9). Check here for specific course information.
- Free live and on-demand AP review courses will be offered online starting March 25. Check here for schedules (they’re not yet available as of this morning).
- There will be robust digital security tools to help prevent cheating and plagiarism.
- Colleges have indicated that they will accept AP scores from these online tests.
If you have more questions, please reach out to Pete or your tutor.
