How many times can I retake an AP Exam?

You can take an AP Exam each time it’s offered. Exams are administered once a year in May. Your score report will include your scores for all the AP Exams you have taken unless you request that one or more scores be withheld or canceled.

If an issue or incident occurs during your AP Exam, you might be eligible for a makeup exam during the current administration. If you need to take a makeup paper AP Exam or AP Chinese or AP Japanese Exam, your AP coordinator will need to submit the order request. If you need to take a makeup digital AP Exam, you can submit a request through My AP. Review details about submitting a makeup digital exam request.
