How Many Hours is the AP European History Exam?

Okay history buffs, I need some info. How long is the AP European History exam? Any advice on how to use the exam time effectively? That way I can get an idea of how much time I'll have for each question.

8 months ago

The AP European History exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes long. It's split into two main sections: Section I has 55 multiple-choice questions which you'll have 55 minutes to complete, and Section II consists of 3 short-answer questions (40 minutes), 1 document-based question (60 minutes), and 1 long essay question (40 minutes). To use the exam time effectively, practice pacing yourself by taking timed practice tests. Focus on reading the questions carefully and planning your essays before you start writing. For example, use the first few minutes allotted for the essay sections to outline your responses, ensuring you include a clear thesis and well-organized arguments. Keep an eye on the clock, but don’t rush—accuracy is more important than speed. With practice, you'll get better at managing your time on exam day.
