How long should I expect to be sitting for the AP Microeconomics exam?

Okay, so I like economics and all, but I’m not thrilled about the idea of a marathon exam session. For any of you that have taken the AP Microeconomics exam, how long does it last, and are there any recommended strategies for endurance or time management? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I understand your concerns about the duration of the AP exams. The AP Microeconomics exam is typically 2 hours and 10 minutes long. This includes a 70-minute section for multiple-choice questions and a 60-minute section for free-response questions, with a 10-minute reading period for the free-response section. As for strategies, I recommend that my students practice full-length exams to build endurance. Also, make sure to time your practice sessions to get a feel for pacing. Staying hydrated and having a good breakfast on test day can also help you stay alert. And don't forget to bring a snack for the break – something with protein to keep your energy up. Best of luck on your exam!
