2021 AP Exams

The 2021 exams will cover the full content in each course, so students have the opportunity to receive college credit and placement.


Given the uncertainties of the 2020-21 school year, some students may feel unsure about taking AP Exams in May. So that students feel comfortable registering by the fall deadline, this year there will be no fees whatsoever if a student decides not to test or to cancel their exams. Every AP student should keep their options open by registering for the exam on time because there will still be a $40 fee for late orders.

The AP Program will support in-school testing in 2021 because administering exams in schools maximizes access and opportunity. If safety concerns still prohibit any students from testing at a school, we will provide a contingency testing option that contains full course content.

AP Daily Videos in AP Classroom

New AP Daily videos cover every topic in the course and can be paired with practice questions to identify student misunderstandings. Videos can be assigned as homework, giving teachers more time to have focused discussions and connect with their students.

AP Daily Video Release Schedule


Videos for Units 1–4 are now available in AP Classroom. We’ll release additional videos by unit throughout the year to support your students.
