Breaking News: Dates and Format for This Year’s AP Exams.

by | Apr 3, 2020

Thank you Arbor Bridge for the timely information! Test dates

  • Each exam will be given twice: once in May (5/11–5/22) and then again in June (6/1–6/5). For the exact dates/times of each test,
  • Each exam will be given at the same time worldwide. This means that depending on a student’s time zone the test may be at an odd time (early morning, late evening, or middle of the night).
  • Students will pick ONE date to take their test. The decision will be entirely up to the student.

Test format

  • As a reminder, the exams will be only 45 minutes long.
  • The tests will be open-book. Students can refer to their notes during the test but CANNOT collaborate with anyone else.
  • The tests will be Free Response only (no multiple-choice questions). For example, history exams will be DBQs, English exams will be a textual analysis essay, and math exams will be multi-focus free-response questions.

Online testing

  • Keep in mind that students will take their AP exams this year online at home.
  • The College Board did NOT release any new information today on how online testing will work. They merely repeated that students will be able to use tablets, phones, laptops, and desktop computers. Students can also write out their answers on paper and submit photos of their work electronically. More details will be available in late April.

We will continue to update you as the College Board announces more. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us! Bettina Weil Founder, Weil College
