AP BC EXAM MAKE UP JUNE 1st
Today we reached the midway point of the two-week primary administration. We couldn't be more proud of the hundreds of thousands of students who showed up for the opportunity to claim the college credit they worked for all year, despite widespread school closures.
Students have taken nearly 2.2 million AP® Exams, across 15 courses. After the first week of testing, our data show the vast majority of students successfully completed their exams.
However, some students have encountered challenges submitting their responses, and we've been listening closely to each student, parent, or educator who reports a problem. Beginning Monday, May 18, we're changing processes to address some of these concerns.
To help support your students during testing, please share the information below with them.
Submitting Exam Responses
We share the deep disappointment of students who were unable to submit responses.
Beginning Monday, May 18, and continuing through the makeup window, there will be a backup email submission process for browser-based exams.
This option will only be available for students who were not able to submit in the standard process—and they must then email their responses immediately following their exam.
These students will see instructions about how to email their response on the page that says, "We Did Not Receive Your Response." The email address that appears on this page will be unique to each student.
Any student testing between May 18–22 who can't successfully upload their response through the exam platform or send it to us by email, will need to request a makeup exam.
To protect the security and validity of exams, we're unable to accept submissions from students who tested May 11–15. However, these students can feel confident that the email option will be in place for them during the makeup exams.
Email submissions will not be available for the World Language exams.
Setting Up Your Students for Success
Given the wide variety of devices, browsers, and connectivity solutions students have access to, we're unable to prevent every possible local error from occurring during the exam. In advance of the administration, we created a testing guide, Exam demo, and test day checklist to help students avoid potential issues. It's important that students review this information and know to:
Locate their e-ticket, which is emailed two days before each exam
Use a recommended browser, update it to the latest version, and disable plugins
Keep an eye on the time and begin their submission at the 5-minute mark
Additional tips to help your students succeed are available here.
Students taking World Language and Culture exams, which begin on Monday, May 18, must:
Download the free AP World Languages Exam App (WLEA)
Set their device to “Do Not Disturb”
Check to ensure they have enough storage on their device
World Language students should also watch the exam walk-through video, and check our website for more guidance.
Thank you for all you continue to do to support your students during this challenging time.
Advanced Placement Program
AP® Exams begin on Monday, May 11. We've outlined steps you should take to ensure your students are prepared to test.
Share the 2020 AP Testing Guide (.pdf/10.37 MB) and watch the overview video. The comprehensive guide will help you walk your students through exam preparation, and the video gives a high-level overview of this year's exams.
Encourage your students to practice with the exam demo. You and your students now have access to an exam demo. Students should use the demo to practice the different ways to submit exam responses. World language students will be able to practice with the AP World Languages Exam App beginning the week of May 11.
Share the required and recommended resource list with your students. Make sure your students know what resources they can use during their exams and how they can access them.
Two Days Before Each Exam
Confirm that registered students have located their e-ticket. Two days before each exam, students will receive an email with their unique exam e-ticket that includes their AP ID. On exam day, students will use their e-ticket to access the exam. If a student hasn't received their exam e-ticket by email, they can access it through their student account on My AP. E-tickets are nontransferable and shouldn't be shared with anyone. Students who haven't been receiving College Board emails still have time to confirm their contact information.
Remind your students to complete the AP Exam Day Checklist (.pdf/513.39 KB) for each exam they're taking. Students should complete this checklist and keep a printed or handwritten copy with them for reference during testing. Completing the checklist will help students feel confident they're set up for success.
On Exam Day
Remind students to click their e-ticket to check in 30 minutes before exam start time. Students should allot 80 minutes for each exam—30 minutes to enter their AP ID, name, and other information, and 50 minutes to draft and submit their responses. Make sure your students know their local testing time, since each subject's exam will be taken simultaneously worldwide.
Ensure your students know what to do if something goes wrong. If a student accidentally closes the browser, their device crashes, or they temporarily lose internet access, they can quickly click their exam e-ticket again to return to the exam. They should continue the exam, and if they feel at the end of the exam that the temporary disruption negatively impacted their performance, they can request approval to take the makeup exam at cb.org/requestmakeup. Students can also request a makeup exam if they've lost too much time due to a technical problem, can't connect to their exam, or experienced some other serious disruption.
This week, Online AP Classes and Review Sessions will focus on the exam day experience and review new sample questions for all nonportfolio courses. These sample questions are available on each subject's course page.
If you have additional questions, please check our in-depth FAQ page for educators. We have developed, and are regularly updating, this comprehensive list of answers to questions we're hearing from students and educators. Other resources are available on cb.org/ap2020.
