Wow we love a tournament that directly coincides with the last 3 days of AP week... isn't that a problem?

Wow, there's more information on NC's national tournament > 1 year before the tournament than Cornell's website a few months before!

It’s happened before. You just make them up in the alternate testing days.

Yeah... I think it almost always coincides with the last 2/3 days. This year is just an exception to that rule.

Nationals almost always falls on AP's last week of testing. Cornell's classes last longer than most schools so Nationals had to be pushed back this year to accommodate their academic calendar.

Nationals/AP conflicts are relatively common. If we discount years where the tournament date is shifted due to a later semester end date, I'm pretty sure they occur more often than not.

Making up an AP exam is pretty straightforward.
