High schoolers will be able to take AP (Advanced Placement) exams at home, due to the closure of many classrooms because of the pandemic.

The College Board, which administers the AP program, issued yesterday an update on testing procedures.

However, exams will return to their usual length.

On the other hand, layoffs have started at The College Board. According to Inside The Higher Education, about 14 percent of people lost their jobs this week.

A spokesman said, “We have made changes to become a more flexible organization, which included difficult decisions to reduce the size of our team.”

A month ago, The College Board announced that it was dropping the Subject Tests and the optional essay section for students in the U.S.
