The 2021 AP Digital Testing App and digital practice are now available.

Please be advised of updates to the 2021 AP Exam Schedule and exam updates on AP Students. Fulbright Korea is currently planning to deliver all 2021 AP paper exams (including AP Chinese and AP Japanese which are computer based) in person, as planned. Students already registered for standard exams will default to Administration 1 test dates. Students already registered for late-testing exams will default to Administration 2 test dates. For already-registered students whose AP testing dates have changed as a result of the updated schedule and for students who registered AP exam(s) from overseas will be given option to switch to administration 2 or 3 testing window of the digital(at-home) exam.  Rest assured that we are collaborating with the AP Program to provide testing opportunities for any students who wish to complete AP Exams this year.

Please log in to your College Board account and check the AP exam(s) you have registered for. Students are able to find their AP exam(s) displayed on their accounts now. If not, please contact us (testing@fulbright.or.kr).

AP

Advanced Placement examinations (AP exams) are exams offered by the College Board and are taken each May. Some colleges and universities in the United States grant credits or advanced placement based on AP test scores.

Korean-American Educational Commission has been administered the AP exams since May 2008 for homeschool, self-study students, or students who are unable to take the AP exams at their school.
