AP Exam Times:
Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home.
The exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.
We’ll continue to support students with free resources through exam day. And while we encourage students to wait until closer to the test date to decide, any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge.Click this link to see which courses will offer what material.
If you do NOT have access to a computer - please let Ms. Faraone know. Lindsey.Faraone@dpsnc.net

As you may or may not know, you’ll be taking your AP tests from home this year. They are still timed, so it’s important that you prepare for test day like you normally would. We are here to help you! You do NOT need to register for your test- I have already done that for you. You actually don’t need to do anything to sign up for the test other than check your email regularly. Here is what that process will look like:
Collegeboard will email you your test access (check your email to see if you got one from Ms. Harkey)
You will log in RIGHT at the DATE AND TIME of your test on any device you prefer
There are lots of ways to prepare. Below are the best resources for you:
DPS Prep Courses (the flyer in your email has info and registration link)
Your AP test(s) will be open note/open book. This is very similar to many college tests. Do NOT fall into the trap of thinking that means if you just have some notes around you don’t have to study- you cannot complete an open book test in time if you have to look up every single question! Here are some good tips straight from Collegeboard about taking an open book test.
Review Sessions: College Board is offering daily review videos on their Youtube Channel. You can find the daily schedule here.
DPS AP SATURDAY REVIEW SESSIONS
Remote AP Saturday review sessions will be offered on Saturday, May 9 and Saturday, May 16. Registration will open on Monday, April 20, 2020. More information to come.
