Information about AP exams:
College Board’s plans to offer AP Exams virtually. This year’s AP Exams will not include questions from the final units of the course – units typically covered in March and April. In addition, the streamlined Exams will take no longer than an hour and will be doable on a mobile phone. By April 3, College Board will publish the full exam schedule including the specific free-response question types that will comprise each AP Exam. Keep in mind, the exams will be “open book.”
Students will have access to free, live AP review lessons, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These online classes are not dependent on current AP teachers continuing instruction; we know many AP teachers now face circumstances that could make instruction impossible or improbable. The classes will be available on-demand, so teachers and students can access them at any time.
The most up to date information related to SAT and AP can be found on the following website (https://pages.collegeboard.org/collegeboard-covid-19-updates).
If experiencing Chromebook issues, BCSD offers online support through the Student Technical Support link located within the student’s ClassLink page on the Chromebook.
Students are able to conduct a live chat with BCSD Tech Support.
In the event that a student is unable to access Student Technical Support, feel free to contact one of the Media Specialists:
