2021 AP Exam Administration

Dear AP Students, Parents/Guardians:

We hope you have a safe and wonderful Spring Break planned for next week!

When we return from Spring Break, we will continue preparing for the spring testing season, so we wanted to share some information from College Board with you about the upcoming AP testing schedule and the next steps in the registration process.

College Board has provided districts, during this unique year, with three exam administration window options as well as the option for in-school pencil/paper exam formats (for all AP courses) and at-home digital exam formats for 25 AP courses. It is important to know that College Board will not be offering both exam formats during each of the three administration windows, and some administration windows have conflicts with FBISD’s academic calendar; therefore, after Spring Break the staff will be available to support you in the registration process as you navigate these decisions.

Because FBISD realizes the importance of traditional in-school pencil/paper exams, the district will offer one face-to-face exam administration for each AP course. For those specific 25 AP courses available for the at-home digital exam format, a later, at-home digital testing option will be extended to FBISD students to allow for additional time to prepare, in consideration of instructional days lost due to the winter storm district closure. It is important to note that College Board does not have at-home digital exams available for World Language and Music Theory courses due to the nature of the exam; therefore, these exams will be in school paper and pencil exams.

The table below includes all exam administration dates available to FBISD students. It is important to note that all AP exams, regardless of if a student is currently learning virtually or face-to-face, will automatically default to the in-school pencil/paper AP exam date through College Board. Students will be able to indicate that they would like their exam to be changed to an at-home digital option.

The week we return from Spring Break (March 22-26), Fort Bend ISD will provide detailed instructions on how students may switch their in-school paper/pencil AP exam to an at-home digital exam format. Until then, students can begin considering the benefits and limitations of each exam option to help guide them to the date that is best for them.
