What's the policy on AP exam make-up dates?

I've got a serious scheduling conflict on the day of my AP exam, and I'm freaking out a bit. Is there a way to take the exam on a different day? How does that work?

Yes, there is definitely a way to address your scheduling conflict without missing out on your AP exam. The College Board, which administers AP exams, provides late testing dates for students who can't take the exam at the scheduled time due to unavoidable circumstances. These conflicts can include illness, other academic contests/competitions, school-sanctioned events, or religious observances, among others.

You should speak with your AP Coordinator at your school as soon as possible to discuss the conflict and request late testing. Be aware that there's typically an additional fee for taking the exam on the alternative date unless your reason for late testing is covered by the College Board’s fee reduction policy. Your school's AP Coordinator will be able to guide you through the process and let you know the specific dates for the late testing period.

It’s understandable to be anxious about this, but with the right steps, you'll be able to sit for your AP exam without issue. Don’t wait to talk to your coordinator; the sooner you get this sorted out, the better!
