Many of you would have registered for the AP May 2020 exam and would also be preparing for the test. With the current COVID -19 circumstances, the College Board has extended support to students who are still eager to take the AP exam and have a chance to earn credits and placements. Only for this year, those who have registered for the May test have the option to take the test at home.
Let’s have a look at the AP home testing features, exam structure, schedule, and scoring –
Though AP is an open book test, you have to prepare for the AP exam. You can pick up facts, formulae or information from the textbooks or online resources which will be only the first step; you should know how to apply the facts in the question to complete the task. If you take more time searching for the information then you may not have time to write the response. So, an open book test may be useful for referring to the facts but still you have to prepare to use the facts effectively in the questions.

The College Board is confident that a vast majority of higher education institutions will offer credits based on AP scores like in the past.
If you have registered for the May 2020 AP exam, go ahead and do the AP home testing.
