High school students are cramming for AP exams which start Monday and is all online this year.

It’s a big deal for students trying to score college credits now to make ends meet later.

If your high schooler is one of the 3.4 million registered, there are some major changes.

The typically three-hour long test is now 45 minutes and will focus on material covered before schools closed in early March.

Students can use books and notes but can not search the internet.

A few tips:

  • Two days before each test, students get an e-ticket to confirm their e-mail address — be sure they do that quickly
  • Download the “Google Chrome” browser.
  • Check-in 30 minutes before each exam.
  • Make sure they take a demo test before the real thing.
