2020 Advanced Placement (AP) Exams and Educator Resources
The health and safety of educators and students is the AP® Program’s highest priority. As schools and communities navigate the challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the College Board will support AP students with free, optional virtual learning and at-home AP testing. These resources will give students the opportunity to earn the college credit and placement they’ve been working toward all year.
For the 2020 AP Exam administration only, College Board developed secure, online free-response exams for each course. The exam content will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
To help them prepare, students and teachers now have access to free, live AP review lessons, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These optional, mobile-friendly classes are designed to be used alongside work that may be given by schools. Teachers who are already providing remote instruction can continue to leverage AP Classroom, an online platform introduced at the start of this school year.
Educators are encouraged to visit the AP Coronavirus Updates website for exam information and remote teaching resources.
