Technology Considerations     
Students must disable the Grammarly browser extension on any device they are using.
Students can access the exam and submit their response using any available device: smartphones, tablets, Chromebooks, (not all AP Exams) or computers, so, when a student clicks to access the exam, the browser that opens should be Chrome™, Firefox® , Safari, or Edge. The exam will not open in other browsers, so students should confirm their default browser is one of these four browsers, which supports their online AP Exams. 
AP French and Spanish Language and Culture Exams require a free new dedicated app, called the AP World Languages Exam App (WLEA). Students must use an iOS or Android operated smartphone or tablet. These exams cannot be taken using a Chromebook.

Students are asked to be sure to confirm via the College Board AP website any other technology requirements or restrictions as they relate to their specific tests. If a student accidentally closes their browser or tab, temporarily loses their internet connection, or experiences some other disruption, students will click their e-ticket to rejoin the exam.
Due to the time limits set by College Board students encouraged to follow if they can’t rejoin the exam, lose too much time trying to regain access, or do not see a Your AP Exam is Complete message at the end of the exam, the student can request a makeup test by completing the form at: cb.org/requestmakeup

Student Exam Accommodations  
Students will be able to use their pre-approved accommodations for 2020 AP Exams. This year the way accommodations are provided may be different because the exams are shorter.
