I'm taking AP Calc this year and I'm trying to figure out how long the exam will take. Can somebody tell me how much time is given for both the multiple choice and the free-response sections? Just trying to get an idea of what to expect on test day.

The AP Calculus exam, which includes both the AB and BC versions, is divided into two main sections: multiple-choice and free-response. Here's a breakdown of the time allocated for each section:

1. Multiple-Choice Section:

- Part A: 30 questions, 60 minutes (with a calculator)

- Part B: 15 questions, 45 minutes (no calculator allowed)

In total, the multiple-choice section has 45 questions and you'll have 105 minutes (1 hour and 45 minutes) to complete it.

2. Free-Response Section:

- Part A: 2 problems, 30 minutes (with a calculator)

- Part B: 4 problems (AB) or 4 problems (BC), 60 minutes (no calculator allowed)

The free-response section will also take 90 minutes (1 hour and 30 minutes) to complete.

In sum, the entire AP Calculus exam (either AB or BC) takes 3 hours and 15 minutes to complete, with 105 minutes for the multiple-choice section and 90 minutes for the free-response section. It's important to practice pacing yourself when preparing for the exam, so you can manage your time effectively on test day. Good luck with your studies!
