Changes to AP Exams

Keep Calm and Keep Your Distance

This year, due to the pandemic, the College Board has made some dramatic changes to the AP tests. They will now be abbreviated, 45 minute long exams that you are able to take at home.

Content Coverage:

AP US History: Units 1-7

AP US Government & Politics: Units 1-3

Since we reached these benchmarks in each of my classes, we will be reviewing this content for the rest of the year. They are also going to publish a schedule of review videos and lectures by AP teachers from all over the country.

Additionally, there will now be two testing dates. It appears one will be very soon and one will be closer to the original time in early may. They said they want to make sure that students have the option to test while the content is still fresh. Testing dates will be published to their website by April 3rd. I will also post an update here for you.

Once we have all the information, we will try to do a Google Hangouts or similar meeting or online discussion. I haven't decided which tools I'm going to use for everything while we are out, but I can tell you my goal is to keep it simple so you aren't getting 300 notifications from all kinds of different services and programs.

Hang in there, keep calm, and keep your distance!
