AP Students and Parents,
You’ve worked hard to get to this moment, and now you’re only weeks away from our first at-home AP Exams. The College Board has developed a range of resources to help you succeed through this new process. AP Exams will be given from May 11-22. Make-up test dates will be available for each subject from June 1-5. Each subject’s exam will be taken at the same time worldwide. We recommend testing during the first testing window.
