August AP Testing for Students with Incomplete Exams

Students who have an incomplete exam submission for any of the online 2020 AP Exam administrations will have a final opportunity to test August 24–31. The schedule is below.

Who is eligible for August testing?

Only students with incomplete exams—students who started the exam but didn’t submit part or all of their exam responses, and didn’t successfully use the backup email submission option or retest—are eligible to test.

How will students know that they’re eligible?

We notified eligible students by email the week of July 27, and emailed the AP coordinator and principal a list of eligible students.

What happens after the student is notified? Do they have to let the AP Program know whether they plan to take the August exam or not?

Eligible students will automatically receive an e-ticket two days before their exam. If a student decides not to test, they can simply ignore the e-ticket.

Important: e-tickets for these August exams will not be available in My AP, so please tell students they must use the e-ticket they receive by email.

How should the students prepare for their August exam?

Just like they did for their earlier exam:

Will there be more testing dates?

No. There are no further 2020 exam opportunities, regardless of circumstance.

What if the testing date conflicts with the student’s classes?

We understand that this timing may overlap with classes at some schools, and we encourage schools to support student exam-taking.

August Testing Schedule

Below are the August testing dates for eligible students. Exams will be administered August 24–31, but note that there are no exams on Friday, August 28. Note also that some exams are scheduled for 8 p.m. Eastern Time during this window.

The unique security protocols for this year’s online exams require all students worldwide to test at the same time. Students should look for their time zone in the table below or use this tool to see world time zones.

Students in Arizona: Most of Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time, which is currently aligned to Pacific Time. Some areas of the state, including Navajo Nation, are on Mountain District Time. Be sure to check your local time.

Check in 30 minutes early: Use your e-ticket to check in to your online exam 30 minutes before start time. Make sure your device’s clock is right so you’re not late to your exam. Remember: you must use the e-ticket you receive by email; your e-ticket will not be available in My AP.
