This period of quarantine to stop the spread of COVID-19 has caused the student body to worry not only for their grades but the AP exams. For precaution, all LAUSD schools will remain closed until May 1. Meaning the doors of Hollywood will open just days before the AP exams start taking place.
The College Board has decided not to postpone the AP Exams. Instead, they have shortened all exams to a 45-minute free-response exam. It was also announced that students will only be tested on what they learned prior to the closure of there, meaning everything learned up until the first week of March. In addition to that, a second test date will be added. So students can either pick to take the exam the date set before the closure of the schools or take it at a later date.
In order to prepare students, the College Board has set up online classes. They will be covering all AP courses from AP English Literature to AP Biology. For the schedule of these courses visit the Advanced Placement Youtube channel linked below. If students still feel unprepared they will be allowed to not take the AP exam with no penalty.
