The AP Testing Guide can be accessed here.  In the guide there is information on the AP Exam e-ticket, 5 steps to take before test day, understanding the test day experience, and exam scores, credit, and placement. 

    By the week of May 4, students will have access to a demo of the online exam experience at cb.org/ap2020. It will allow them to practice the different ways to submit responses and test that the exam will run on their device and browser on exam day.

    AP Chinese, French, Japanese, German, Italian, and Spanish Language and Culture students need to download an additional world language exam app to test (available the week of May 11). Before your exam, they can use the app’s practice mode to try out features, test their device, and preview the sound quality of audio recorded on their device. A video walkthrough for these exams will be available the week of May 4. 

    AP Central was updated with information about flexible testing options for schools experiencing substantial disruption or closure and guidance for schools that plan to maintain AP instruction while students are at home.  You can find the update hereapcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update
