What is the Test Content?
Most exams are two to three hours long, and many parts are given on a computer. Accommodations can be made for students with special needs. The first part of the exam usually consists of multiple-choice questions. You will choose one of four or five answer choices for each question. Your total exam score on the multiple-choice section is based only on the number of questions answered correctly. You won’t receive or lose points for incorrect answers or unanswered questions. Many math and science exams allow the use of an appropriate calculator.
The second part of the exam usually consists of free-response questions that require you to generate your own responses. Depending on the exam, your responses could be in the form of an essay, a solution to a problem, or a spoken response. In most cases, you’ll be writing your response in pen in the free-response exam booklet.
Not all AP Exams are pencil and paper exams. AP Chinese Language and Culture and AP Japanese Language and Culture Exams are CD-based and taken on computer. AP Studio Art students submit portfolios of their work for review.
