AP Biology Exam Monday May 13th 8:00AM

Successful Test-Taking Strategies for the New AP* Biology Exam

The new AP Biology exam is 3 hours long and consists of the following sections:

Multiple choice (90 min)

Part A: 63 multiple-choice questions derived from the Curriculum Framework

Part B: 6 grid-in, quantitative questions

Free-response questions (90 min)

Two long free-response questions

Six short free-response questions

The multiple-choice and free-response sections have equal weight, each accounting for ½ the total exam score.

Beginning on the 2013 exam, students can take a 4-function calculator (including square root) for use during the entire exam. They will be provided a list of formulas. Students should take plenty of #2 pencils, with erasers, to answer the multiple-choice portion of the exam and plenty of black ballpoint pens to answer the FRQs. Each student should also take a watch for tracking time and an ID acceptable for checking into the testing location.

Remember: relax, get a good night’s sleep, and eat a nutritious breakfast before the exam

GO GET IT & BE A BIOLOGY CHAMPION!!!

GOOD LUCK!
