In June 2019, over 18,000 high school and college faculty members served as AP Readers, scoring over 5.1 million exams during the annual AP Reading. The AP Program would like to invite you to join the pool of eligible AP Readers as we prepare for the 2020 Reading. If you are already an AP Reader, thank you so much for your service.

We have a significant need for Readers in your subject in 2020. If you are not an AP Reader, apply to become one today. You may be eligible to join the Reading pool if you have taught your AP subject for 2 years or more. The sooner that you apply the better chance you have to be invited to the 2020 AP Reading.*
