                   Practice Exams

A new practice exam is now available on the AP® Course Audit site and in AP Classroom, along with scoring guidelines and a scoring worksheet. As a reminder, all free-response questions, including the ones on all practice exams, can now be assigned to students digitally, without a LockDown Browser.


Testing Guide

2020 AP Testing Guide (.pdf/10.9 MB): The guide, designed for educators to walk their students through test day, provides information about:


-        The AP Exam e-ticket

-        Five steps to take before test day

-        Understanding the test day experience

-        Exam scores, credit, and placement


AP Exam Day Checklist

2020 AP Exam Day Checklist (.pdf/526 KB): Teachers should have their students complete this checklist for each exam they take and keep it next to them while testing.

Explainer Videos: New videos are available to give students quick, easily accessible information about their test day experience, what they need to do to prepare, exam security, and more. Explore the playlist.


AP Exam Demo (available May 4)

AP students should use the clickable exam demo to practice the different ways to submit their exam responses. The demo will help students confirm that their testing device will be able to access and run the online exam. If they can’t access the demo, the final slide of the Testing Guide can help them troubleshoot. The sample content in the demo will be the same for all users and isn't a practice exam. We’ll send educators and students an email to remind them when the demo is available. Please encourage your students to take this important preparation step.
