AP Chinese Language and Culture and AP Japanese Language and Culture Exams are administered using an online exam application. AP coordinators will be emailed in March with a link to install the exam application on testing computers before exam day.
These exams can be administered on Windows PCs, Chromebooks, and Mac computers that have Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. Internet connectivity is required throughout the setup process and exam administration.
Testing computers must be school owned and controlled. Chromebooks must be under management control of Google G Suite for Education. Headsets are also required for each student testing.
More information about preparing for and administering these exams will be available in the AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams: Setup and Administration Guide, available in spring 2022.
AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams are ordered through AP Registration and Ordering in the same way as all other exam subjects. For more information about ordering AP Exams, go to Ordering Exam Materials.
Extended time, breaks, screen magnification, and adjustable screen color are supported through the AP Chinese and Japanese exam application for students who are approved for these accommodations by College Board. If a student with any other approved accommodation is planning to take the AP Chinese or AP Japanese Language and Culture Exam, contact the College Board SSD office.
In March 2022
We'll email AP coordinators with all details needed to install, practice with, and administer the exams, including:
- The link to install the exam application on testing computers.
- A link to the AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams: Setup and Administration Guide, which will include instructions for installing the exam application.
- Passwords and codes you and proctors will need to run the exam application on exam day.
