Advanced Placement

  • This year’s AP exams will occur May 11-15 and May 18-22, with a make-up exam option of June 1-5. The complete exam schedule can be found here.  The College Board also produced live AP review videos, called AP Live, that are free for students. These mobile-friendly courses are delivered by AP teachers from across the country and are designed to be used alongside work that may be given by schools. Each class will be recorded and available on-demand so teachers and students can access them at any time. The classes will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons, including topics from the final 25% of the course.
