Revised 2020 AP® Exam Dates (as of May 27, 2020)

The AP® Exams will now take place from May 11 to May 22, 2020 with makeup dates from June 1 to June 5, 2020 and exception dates from June 22 to June 30. The College Board announced on its website that AP® exams will shift to an online format that can be administered at home or at a school. These digital AP® exams will only last 45 minutes and will include only a modified free-response section.

Students will be automatically enrolled in new exam dates in May. Contact your AP® coordinator if you would like to enroll in the exam dates in June instead. New registrations for the exam are not possible at this time.

Each exam will occur at the exact same time across all time zones around the world. For example, while a student who leaves in the Eastern time zone will take the exam at 12:00 PM ET, another student who lives in the Pacific time zone will be taking the exam at 9:00 AM PT.  The specific dates and times of the exams are shown in the table below.
