MHS 2021 AP Exam Schedule
On 3.25.21 MCPS released the statement below to share that the majority of students will be taking their 2021 AP Exams in the digital format from home. You can read the full release here.
"In February 2021, the College Board and International Baccalaureate (IB) announced changes to spring 2021 Advanced Placement (AP) and IB examinations. MCPS has reviewed available options, consulted with stakeholders and considered the operational, safety and health measures needed to successfully administer AP/IB exams in May 2021. Below is a summary of how MCPS will offer these exams for our students:
- AP Exams: As MCPS expects to administer more than 45,000 exams and many high schools will be at capacity with in-person instruction, the at-home digital option will be the default AP exam format for MCPS students when available. The College Board has fully validated the at-home digital option and will ensure complete access to score reporting and the ability to earn college credit."
