How does the response to COVID-19 impact students taking Regents exams?
Students in Regents courses should plan to take Regents exams in June. Students are always permitted to take the Regents exams for their courses, regardless of their performance or attendance. For science Regents exams, students must usually complete a 1,200-minute laboratory requirement. The New York State Education Department has waived this requirement this year. Students should complete the activities assigned by their science teachers, but they will not be required to complete 1,200 minutes of in-person laboratory experience.
