AP Bio Exam Questions

Hey everyone! I'm planning on taking the AP Bio exam this year but I'm not sure what to expect. Can anyone who's taken it before give me some insight on the kind of questions that come up in the exam? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I'm glad you're preparing for the AP Bio exam. The AP Biology Exam consists of two sections: multiple choice and free response.

I. Multiple Choice Section: This section has 60 multiple-choice questions, and you'll have 90 minutes to complete it. The questions cover a variety of topics, including molecular biology, genetics, ecology, and evolution. Some questions will be supported by various texts, graphs, and diagrams, requiring you to interpret and analyze the information presented.

II. Free Response Section: This section consists of 6 questions, and you will have 90 minutes to complete them. Two of the questions are long-form and the other four are short-form. The long-form questions typically require you to design an experiment or analyze data. The short-form questions test your ability to apply your knowledge of biology to specific scenarios or concepts.

In order to do well on the exam, it's important to familiarize yourself with the College Board's AP Biology Course and Exam Description. This document provides an overview of the required content knowledge along with the specific science practices you are expected to demonstrate during the exam.

To get a good sense of the kind of questions you might encounter, reviewing past exams and official practice questions will be beneficial. Additionally, several resources like textbooks, review books, and online resources (including CollegeVine) can help you prepare by providing practice questions, study guides, and comprehensive content reviews.
