For details on the 2023 AP Physics 1 Exam, check this article.

Unlike 2020 and 2021, when the College Board modified the AP exams as a response to the disruption caused by COVID-19, the 2022 AP exams will return to its original format.

This year, the AP exams will take place over a two-week period in May: May 2–6 and May 9–13.

The College Board may change the format, however, if schools are disrupted in the spring due to COVID-19.

“We’ll continue to monitor global, national, and local health conditions, putting the health and safety of students first, and if there are widespread school closures in spring 2022, we’ll provide options similar to those offered in 2021,” the College Board noted here.

We will, of course, update this guide if that should happen.

The AP Physics 1 exam for 2022 will be a full-length paper-and-pencil exam that students can take in school only.

Here is what you need to know to do well in the upcoming AP Physics 1 exam.

Will I get AP credit for the 2022 AP Physics 1 exam?
