2023 AP® Exam Dates

Read on for everything we know so far about the 2023 AP Exams.

Is there anything different about the 2023 AP Exams?

The 2023 AP Exams will follow the same general format as the 2022 paper-and-pencil exams: All 2023 AP Exams will be held in-school with initial test times spread over the first two weeks in May. The biggest difference in 2023 is that some AP Exams are now being offered in a digital format in the following subjects:

  • AP Computer Science Principles
  • AP English Language
  • AP English Literature
  • AP European History
  • AP Seminar
  • AP U.S. History
  • AP World History

It will be up to your school  to determine whether you take a digital exam, a paper-and-pencil exam, or have the option of both.

Where will I take my AP Exam?

All AP Exams are to be taken in person, in students’ schools.

When will I take my AP Exam?

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 taking your test on the original test date, check with your AP Coordinator to see if you qualify for rescheduling a late test.
