Information for the 2021 AP Exam administration

In 2021, AP Chinese and AP Japanese Language and Culture Exams will be administered on a new online platform that can be accessed on PCs, Macs, or Chromebooks. CDs will no longer be used for these exams. Details will be provided in early 2021. There are no changes to the way these exams are ordered—include exam orders for these subjects in your school's order by November 13.


You’ll order AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams through AP Registration and Ordering. For more information about ordering AP Exams, go to Ordering Exam Materials .

Please call the College Board SSD office immediately if any students are planning to take AP Chinese or AP Japanese Exams with accommodations and provide detailed information about the accommodations they need.

Fee Reductions and Class Sections

You don’t need to complete a separate Fee Reduction/Section Designation Form for students taking these exams. You’ll create class sections for AP Chinese and AP Japanese before the start of the school year at the same time you create all other class sections in AP Registration and Ordering.

You’ll indicate the fee reduction status for these students only in AP Registration and Ordering, as you will for students taking any other AP Exams. Fee reduction status needs to be indicated by April 30, 2021, 11:59 p.m. ET. See more information about Accessing and Using AP Registration and Ordering.
