Given the wide variety of devices, browsers, and versions students are using, we anticipated that a small percentage of students would encounter technical difficulties, and we have a makeup window in June so students have another opportunity to test.

My daughter couldn't submit her picture responses for Mechanics so she switched to typing for EM. It still didn't work.

We're sorry to hear your daughter was unable to submit her responses. If she was unable to complete the exam because of this issue, she can request approval to take the makeup exam at .

If only 2% had issues submitting (which I highly doubt), then why can’t these students retake it within a week instead of waiting a month? While they still know the material?

So schedule it for a Saturday morning where it won’t conflict with other AP exams. Then you can see if you have the same issue with the same test-takers (like maybe there’s a common thread in these failed submissions) BEFORE June.

ap lang test: 580,000 kids took it last year so about 11,600 kids will have submission issues if 2% have issues and that is not a small amount ap physics: 50,000 kids too it and 1,000 had issues that’s not small either

In total across all AP’s it would be as big as 100,000 students if the 2% keeps up.

I was unable to submit Question 1 during both the Mechanics and E+M Exams. Also, the form for requesting makeup exams failed to work properly. Like I know you guys tried hard, but COME ONNNN I DID SO WELL ON THIS EXAM!

I think that given the open-book nature of these exams and the cheating precautions already in place, students who encountered technical failures should be allowed to submit their documents by email to their teacher.

That’s about 50,000 students that should have gotten their money back instead of trying to test the way they are.

You had the option to request money back
