College Board Changes for Advanced Placement (AP) Courses and Exams

February 15th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

With course selection for the 2019-2020 school year approaching, the College Board has made some changes regarding Advanced Placement (AP) courses and exams that involve new classroom resource availability, along with new registration and ordering processes.

Beginning in August 2019, teachers and students will complete a short digital activation process at the start of the school year which will provide access to new classroom resources such as a question bank, unit guides, personal progress checks, and a performance dashboard.

With the introduction of the new student and teacher resources, College Board is moving the AP Exam registration and ordering timeline from the spring to the fall for the 2019-2020 school year. Therefore, students enrolled in an AP course who want to participate in the AP exams in May 2020 will register, pay, and commit to taking the exam in October 2019. There will be additional fees for each exam ordered after the final deadline in the fall and for any exam that is ordered but not taken.

School coordinators will order exams following the new fall deadlines and based on the rosters created through the online registration. School coordinators will also receive personalized AP ID registration labels that will be used to connect students’ exam materials with their registration information. This eliminates bubbling information circles on the exam and pre-administration sessions.
