Breaks

Important Update

To support students affected by school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re offering at-home testing for 2020 AP Exams. This means changes to some of our processes and policies. Note that these adjustments may not be reflected on all AP Students pages including this one. For the most updated information, visit Updates for AP Students Affected by Coronavirus.

During the break between Sections 1 and 2 of your AP Exam, or during any other unscheduled breaks, you are not allowed to consult textbooks, notes, teachers, or other students; and you may not use any electronic or communication devices, like your cell phone, for any reason.

Also, you may not leave the building at any time during the exam administration, including during a scheduled break.

Remember, whether it is during breaks or after the exam, you must not communicate anything to anyone, including your classmates and your teachers, about the multiple-choice content that appeared on your AP Exam.
