Updated Information on 2020 AP Exams

posted 4/13/2020

Dear AP students and families,

The College Board has made significant changes to the AP exams this year due to the Covid-19 related school closures. We want to provide information about these updates and to let you know how Weston High School is responding to these changes.

First, and most importantly, you should know that each AP exam will be taken online and at home using your personal laptop or home computer. Each exam is 45 minutes and will consist of either 1 or 2 open response questions. You can find detailed, exam-specific information on the College Board website. Please find this information here.The exams will take place May 11-22; exams are scheduled to begin at noon, 2pm and 4pm each exam day. You will hear from the College Board directly about how to access the exams at home, including information about how exam accommodations will be provided using the online exam platform. For example, extended time accommodations will be built into the test for students pre-approved to receive them. It is important to know that even if we are back at school, you will take your AP exams at home.

We believe that WHS students will be well prepared to take the AP exams. The College Board has communicated with many colleges and universities that support the solution to this year’s AP exams. They are confident that the vast majority of higher education institutions will award credit and/or placement as they have in the past. However, in the face of these changes and the challenges that Coronavirus has caused, if you have changed your mind about taking the AP exam in May, you may request a refund of your exam fee ($100 per exam). If you decide not to take the AP exam, you will still receive AP credit for the course from Weston High School. Students will not be penalized for not taking the exam.

Any student who has decided NOT to take the AP exam should contact me via email (pattersone@weston.org) to request a refund by April 24 at the latest.

I hope that you and your family are staying safe and well. If you have any questions at all, please reach out to me or to your guidance counselor.

Best,

Erin Patterson
AP Coordinator
