I have students who have been approved for extended time. Can they take the AP Chinese or AP Japanese Exams?

  • Yes. Extended time is available through the exam application for students approved for time and one-half (+50%), double time (+100%), or more than double time (+150% and +200%). On exam day, the proctor will need to enable these accommodations on the approved student's testing computer. See the AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams: Setup and Administration Guide (available at for more information.
  • If you have questions about enabling extended time through the exam application, contact technical support at [email protected] or 609-406-5640.
  • Students testing with extended time or approved for accommodations that include a reader, writer, or equipment that might disturb others must test in separate rooms from students testing without accommodations. See the AP SSD Guidelines for details.
  • Contact the College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office at 844-255-7728 (toll free in the U.S. and Canada) or 212-713-8333 with questions about accommodations.
