New Resources and Processes in the 2019-20 School Year

Starting in 2019-20, schools will implement new annual processes and have access to new classroom resources and supports. AP Exams will be ordered in the fall (2019) via a new registration and ordering system. Personalized registration labels supplied for each student included in the exam order will eliminate the need for preadministration sessions.

Teachers and students will receive free course and exam preparation resources, including question banks, personal progress checks, and performance feedback. To learn more, visit the AP 2019 page

Assistive Technology Compatible (ATC) Exams
