Revised 2020 AP® Exam Dates (as of April 3, 2020)

The AP® Exams will take place May 11th through May 22nd. Students are automatically enrolled in these new dates.  The late testing dates, June 1st through 5th, are available only with permission from their schools.

Each exam will occur at the exact same time across all time zones; for example, when a student takes the exam at 12:00 pm Eastern time, a student who lives in the Pacific time zone will be taking the exam at 9:00 am.  The specific dates and times of the exams are shown in the table below.

AP® exams will not be administered in-person, but can be taken online. 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. Crucially, these digital AP® exams will only last 45 minutes and will only include part of the exam.

  • Registration for the exams is closed. No new registrations will be taken.
  • Exam simulation will be available for students.
