AP Physics 1 Test Length

Hey there! I've been trying to find the exact length of the AP Physics 1 exam, like how many multiple-choice questions and free-response questions there are. Also, do both sections have time limits? Any information would be appreciated!

Hey! The AP Physics 1 exam is made up of two sections: multiple-choice and free-response, with specific time limits for each.

For the multiple-choice section, you'll have 1 hour and 30 minutes to answer 50 questions. These questions will test your understanding of physics concepts and principles, as well as your ability to solve problems using proper mathematical techniques.

The free-response section consists of 5 questions, and you'll have 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete them. In this section, you'll be asked to analyze and explain physical situations, solve problems, and justify your reasoning. The 5 questions usually break down as follows:

1. Experimental Design (10 points)

2. Qualitative/Quantitative Translation (12 points)

3. Paragraph Argument Short Answer (7 points)

4. Short Answer (7 points)

5. Short Answer (7 points)

Remember, adequate time management is crucial during the exam, as you'll need to pace yourself to answer all questions within the given time limits. Good luck on your exam!
