Each AP test costs $94 to sign up for. When we AP students paid the fee (or more accurately, when our parents paid the fee), we expected that we would take a 2-3 hour test that would accurately examine our knowledge on the subject and qualify us for college credit.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this is no longer possible. In lieu of the formal test, the College Board has agreed to administer a 45-minute online exam consisting of a handful of free-response questions. It is admirable of the College Board to come up with an alternative, but the alternative will no longer accurately examine our knowledge on the subject. There is no way that you can sum up a whole year's worth of learning into one question. Furthermore, even with all of its faults, the alternative AP exam will still be scored on the 1-5 scale that qualifies us for college credit, meaning doing bad on the single question could completely tank your score and damage your opportunity to get the college credit you worked for.

The College Board has essentially offered us an ultimatum: Take the AP Exam Lite or take back your money. Pay $94 for a single question or waste a whole year's worth of learning and effort.

The operating costs for the condensed AP exam cannot be as high as the operating costs for the original AP exam. Therefore, we request the College Board refund at least 50% of the $94 fee of each AP exam to every student taking the condensed AP exam. Thank you.
