The 2021 Advanced Placement exams will be offered over three different administrations. The change, as recently announced by College Board, is of course due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The dates for Administration 1, in which the tests are administered at schools, are as follows: May 3 – 7, May 10 – 12, May 14, and May 17. The dates for Administration 2, in which the tests are administered in school and at home, are May 18 – 21 and May 24 – 28. The dates for Administration 3, in which the tests are administered in school and at home, are June 1 – 4 and June 7 – 11.
As College Board states on its website, “The 2021 exam schedule provides three testing dates (Administrations 1, 2, and 3) for each subject between early May and mid-June. In Administration 1, all exams are paper and pencil, administered in school. In Administration 2, half of the subjects are paper and pencil, administered in school, and half are digital, administered in school or taken at home. In Administration 3, most subjects are digital, administered in school or taken at home…Schools make all decisions about which exams are offered. Students won’t be able to choose exam dates on their own. Beginning in early March, AP coordinators will be able to assign students to Administration 2 and/or 3 exams, if needed.”
