Hi everyone, I'm prepping for the AP Calculus AB exam and want to have an idea of how long it will be. What is the duration of both the multiple-choice and free-response sections combined?

5 months ago

The AP Calculus AB exam consists of two main sections: multiple-choice and free-response. The duration of the exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes in total.

The multiple-choice section has 45 questions and is split into two parts. Part A, which has 30 questions, is 60 minutes long, and you cannot use a calculator. Part B contains 15 questions, lasts 45 minutes, and does allow the use of a calculator.

The free-response section consists of 6 questions: in the first part, you'll answer 2 questions in 30 minutes with the use of a calculator. In the second part, you will have 60 minutes to answer the remaining 4 questions without a calculator.

To summarize:

- Multiple-Choice: 105 minutes

- Part A: 60 minutes (no calculator)

- Part B: 45 minutes (calculator permitted)

- Free-Response: 90 minutes

- Part A: 30 minutes (calculator permitted)

- Part B: 60 minutes (no calculator)

The total duration of the AP Calculus AB exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes. Good luck with your preparation!
