The following update is for Staples students who are currently registered to take an Advanced Placement exam in May of 2020.  

Online Exams Only for 2020: College Board will be offering secure 45-minute online free-response exams for each course. The exam content will focus on what most schools were able to complete by early March. AP students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. The College Board has been assured that colleges/universities support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they would otherwise receive. The College Board is also offering free supplemental resources that will be available through exam day. 

Test Dates and Times: For each AP subject, there will be two different testing dates. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing information will be available by April 3, 2020. Any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge. More information will be forthcoming from College Board on the deadline for a student to cancel their registration and receive a full refund
Future Updates: Please continue to check the College Board website for additional important updates concerning all things testing including accommodations. Additionally, we will be sending out updates as we receive them from College Board.
