Note: This help topic is out of date and currently archived.

The College Board, which oversees the Advanced Placement (AP) program, is working to develop online solutions for students impacted by COVID-19. AP exams will be modified so that students will take a 45-minute online exam at home that will be accessible using a variety of devices including computers, tablets, or smartphones. The scope of the exams also has been modified to address topics and skills that most AP teachers and students covered in class by early March.

A full 2020 AP Testing Guide is available online.
