A message from The College Board

Posted on

Team Chesterfield families,

(This message is from The College Board and is for parents of students currently enrolled in AP courses for the 2019-20 school year.)

We surveyed 18,000 AP students to see if they still wanted the opportunity to test this year. Their answer: A resounding yes.

Free resources will be available through exam day to help you get ready. While we encourage you to wait until closer to the test to decide, any student registered for an exam can cancel at no charge.

For the 2019-20 exam administration only:

  • We’re developing 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.
  • You’ll be able to take your exams on any device you have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll also have the option to write your responses by hand and submit a photo.
  • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
  • We know that not all students have access to the internet or a device. We’re working on solutions to help students get what they need to show their best work. If you need mobile tools or connectivity or know someone who does, you can reach us directly to let us know.
