Do students outside the United States have to take AP Exams at the same time as students in North America?

Yes. To keep AP Exams secure this year, all students worldwide must test at the same time per course.

We chose the times so that the largest number of exam takers could test during daylight hours. We recognize this solution means some students outside the U.S. will have to test early in the morning or late at night.

We hope that for most students, having the chance to test outweighs the unusual timing. We do encourage students and families to prioritize their health over taking AP Exams, and we support any student’s decision not to test. All students can cancel exams at no charge this year.
