2022 AP® EXAM DATES

On July 13, 2021, The College Board released its intended test dates for the 2022 AP Exams. 

Read on for everything we know so far about the 2022 AP Exams.

Notably, the 2022 AP Exams will be administered in the traditional paper-and pencil format, with the exception of AP Chinese Language and Culture and AP Japanese Language and Culture, which will be administered digitally, as has always been the case.

Where will I take my AP Exam?

All AP Exams are to be taken in person, in students’ schools. So far, there has been no mention of any at-home testing.

When will I take my AP Exam?

For all traditional, in-person paper-and-pencil exams, each subject’s exam will occur at a set local time, so some students taking the same exam may not take them simultaneously. For example, while a student who lives on the east coast will take her paper-and-pencil AP U.S. History Exam at 8:00 AM EDT, a student who lives on the west coast would take his AP U.S. History Exam at 8:00 AM PDT, three hours later. The same applies to international students.

What if I have a scheduling conflict?

If you are taking more than one AP Exam, and two of those AP Exams are scheduled at the same time, your AP Coordinator will be able to register you for a late testing date. Similarly, if circumstances prevent you from you taking your test on the original test date, check with your AP Coordinator to see if you qualify for rescheduling a late test.
