Here’s everything you need to know about AP and final exams for the 2020-2021 school year.

It’s about that time of year again. AP and Final Exams are steadily approaching this upcoming month going onto June, and it’s important to know anything different than what you may normally be accustomed to. Read on for a general information guide for these tests:


AP Exams – 


AP Exams will have a similar format to what occurred last year when the pandemic began. Most tests will be digital, with exceptions to some subjects. Click (here) to view all the dates of the exams, but it’s better to check your own College Board profile to confirm when your test is.

– Final Exams – 


Final exams will occur on the week of June 4th to June 10th. Similar to last semester, you will have the option to choose whether you want to take teacher-made exams, and they can only help your grade. Students who have to take an EOC or CTE (Math I, Math 3, English 2, or Biology) or (Foods and Nutrition I and II, Health Science I, Horticulture II, Principles of Business) state exam, will have to attend in-person (including those in virtual academy) and those also cannot lower your grade.
