AP EXAM UPDATES
Taking into consideration our current situation and the added pressure this adds to our students and parents, BUHSD has allocated funds to cover the cost of AP Exams for our students as long as they comply with the following 4 requirements:
- The student is currently enrolled in the AP course at BUHS
- The student has already ordered an exam with a $5 deposit per exam
- The student maintains a C or better in the course
- The student takes part in the enrichment activities provided by and recommended by their AP teachers
We are aware that a few students have made additional payments after their $5 deposit. Students will be reimbursed for money they have paid after their $5 deposit. The $5 order down payment is non-refundable. Please email your AP teacher the AP Student Name, Exam, and how much the student paid additionally after the $5 deposit by April 24, 2020. Students should have a receipt of any payments made.
Students choosing to cancel their AP Exam must do so by emailing their AP teacher by April 24, 2020 with no additional cancellation fee.
Additionally, the Advanced Placement (AP) program made an announcement last Friday to address questions relating to the 2020 AP exam administration. Please visit the Collegeboard website at www.collegeboard.org for AP updates.
Here are a few highlights from the update:
- For the 2019-20 exam administration only, AP Exams will be offered online only.
- Each exam will be 45 min
- The online exam will be offered on two dates
- Additional test date information will be released on April 3rd
- Only units covered until early March will be covered on the exam (a detailed matrix highlighting what will/will not be covered for each AP courses is available)
- Since Wednesday, March 25, students and schools have access to free, live AP review lessons, delivered by AP teachers from across the country.
- These lessons are hosted on AP’s YouTube channel
- This can be used by teachers and students
- Collegeboard will update their webpage and share updates by email, the online AP communities, and the Collegeboard AP Exam social media channels.
- Collegeboard is in the process of developing a plan for AP Capstone, AP Art and Design Courses, and AP CSP.
- Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they've worked this year to earn.
- Collegeboard recognizes that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach Collegeboard directly to let them know.
