Reader positions are available based upon test-taker volumes. Submitting an application does not automatically constitute your employment as a Reader. ETS reserves the right to withdraw an invitation prior to the scheduled AP Reading session based upon business needs.
Note: If your application has been approved within the past 6 years, please do not reapply. All Readers must be able to work at the Reading for 7 consecutive days.
Qualified applicants in subjects with a high need for Readers have a greater likelihood of being invited to the Reading in the year they apply.
It is not unusual to be invited to the Reading in one year and not the next, especially in subjects where the Reader pool is deep. New Readers in subjects with deep Reader pools may have to wait several years before receiving an invitation to the Reading.
