What are AP Exams Like?


Each of the exams has its own unique requirements; however, almost all of the exams have several things in common:

  • Most exams are two to three hours long. Be prepared to tackle a challenging exam with limited breaks. Eat a good breakfast and, if you are taking more than one exam on the same day, make sure you have lunch and snacks to keep you going.
  • 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 and use a pencil to bubble in your choice on your AP answer sheet. 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.
  • 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, a spoken response and more. In most cases, you'll be writing your response in pen in the free-response exam booklet.
  • Not all AP Exams are paper and pencil exams. AP Chinese Language and Culture and AP Japanese Language and Culture Exams are CD-based and taken on a computer. AP Studio Art students submit portfolios of their work for review.
