AP Psych Exam Duration—What Should I Expect?

Hey folks, I'm starting to schedule my studying for AP exams, and I just need to know: how long does the AP Psych exam take? I want to get a feel for when I can plan my post-exam relaxation! Any tips on managing the time would also be really appreciated.

Hey there! Glad to hear you're planning ahead for your AP exams – that's always a wise strategy. The AP Psychology exam is typically 2 hours long, with a 70-minute multiple-choice section and a 50-minute free-response section. You'll get a short break in between to stretch and relax a little. For time management, I'd recommend you practice with timed practice tests to get an idea of the pacing. It's important to move through the multiple-choice questions at a steady pace, aiming to spend around one minute per question, so you have enough time to double-check your responses. When tackling the free-response section, make sure to outline your answers briefly before diving in to ensure that your answers are structured and you're hitting all the points. After the exam, you'll have earned some well-deserved downtime – maybe plan something fun as a motivator to push through the study sessions leading up to the big day. Best of luck!
