In response to school closings due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve changed all 2020 AP Exam dates and portfolio due dates, and we’ve developed exams that students can take at home this year. We want students to have an opportunity to earn college credit and/or placement through their AP scores in spite of the crisis.

The following table shows the updated primary 2020 exam dates, which run from May 11–22.

We’ve made other changes to this year’s exams, including changes to timing, format, and content and skills covered. Note that 2020 exam changes may not be reflected on all AP Central site pages. For the latest information, go to our AP Coronavirus Updates site: visit AP Exam Schedule 2020 for course-specific information or Taking AP Exams to learn more about how students will take exams this year.
