About the Exam

Important Update

2021 AP Spanish Language and Culture Exams will be administered in early May, late May, and early June. This subject does not have an at-home version of the exam—access to online translation applications and other resources means that a full-length exam can't be securely and fairly administered at home. 2021 AP Spanish Language and Culture Exams will only be available in schools or school-proctored locations.

The exam will cover the full scope of course content, giving you the opportunity to qualify for college credit and placement.

There are differences between the paper and digital versions of some 2021 AP Exams, and those variations differ by course. The information below applies to AP Spanish Language and Culture only. View a summary of all 2021 AP Exam formats.
