Quick reminders for the 2021 AP® Exam Schedule:

  • Each 2021 AP® exam will be offered at three different times. Be very careful about whether the exam times are given in “local time” or “Eastern Daylight Time”. Here is a helpful tool for converting between time zones.
  • Many exams have two versions: a digital version and a paper (traditional) version.
  • School administratorsnot individual students – will be making the final decision about which exams are offered. Students will not be selecting their exam dates on their own.
