Paper, In School
AP Biology Exams will be offered on paper in early May and as a digital exam in late May and early June. This is the Administration 1 date for the AP Biology Exam.
All versions of the exam will cover the full scope of course content, giving you the opportunity to qualify for college credit and placement. On the digital exam, you’ll answer free-response questions with a keyboard, rather than by hand. If you take the digital exam, you won’t be asked to draw or graph as part of your response—rather, these skills will be assessed with questions about given diagrams or other stimuli, as they would be on the paper exam. The digital exam app will include any symbols you’ll need to type your responses. No handwritten or photographed work will be required or accepted.
