LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- Students enrolled in Advanced Placement programs will be allowed to take their exams remotely due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The College Board, which makes the SAT and AP test, are developing secure 45-minute online exams for each course. The exam content will focus on what schools were able to complete by early March.

Students can take the exam on a computer, tablet or smart phone.

The Department of Education also says to help students study for the AP tests, they will have access to free, live Advanced Placement review lessons. The classes will be taught by AP teachers.

The review will work in conjunction with the work given by schools.
