Hello! I'm prepping for the AP Calc exam and I'm trying to gauge how long it takes to answer each question. So, exactly how long is the exam and how much time do we have for each section?

The AP Calculus exam, whether AB or BC, is 3 hours and 15 minutes long. This total time is split into two main sections: Multiple Choice and Free Response.

The Multiple Choice section is 1 hour and 45 minutes long and is divided into two subsections:

1. Part A: You will have 60 minutes to answer 30 questions, and no calculator is permitted. This equates to approximately 2 minutes per question.

2. Part B: You will have 45 minutes to answer 15 questions, and a calculator is allowed. This allows for approximately 3 minutes per question.

The Free Response section is 1 hour and 30 minutes long and is also divided into two subsections:

1. Part A: You have 30 minutes to answer 2 questions, and a calculator is allowed. This gives you 15 minutes per question.

2. Part B: You have 60 minutes to answer 4 questions, and no calculator is permitted. So you get approximately 15 minutes per question here too.

I hope this helps you in planning and preparing for your exam! Remember that practice is key to getting comfortable with each section's timing constraints. Best of luck with your preparations!
