About AP Classes and Exams
The term AP, or Advanced Placement, refers to both classes and exams. They are designed to simulate more challenging, college-level work.
AP tests take place at the end of AP classes to assess how much you learned in the class and whether you deserve to earn college credit. Doing well on AP tests can enable you to finish college early or avoid taking introductory college classes in subjects with which you are already very familiar.
Studies show that students who do well on AP classes and their corresponding AP Exams are more likely to succeed in and finish college, so taking them can strengthen your overall college application and improve your chances of admission at competitive schools.
AP Exams are typically held once a year in May. Unlike the SAT and ACT, however, you have only one chance to do well, so proper scheduling and preparation are crucial. If you don’t think you have learned the material well enough in an AP class to pass the exam, consider AP tutoring from Livius Prep.
About AP Biology and Physics
Biology: AP Biology is an introductory college-level biology course. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore evolution, cellular processes, energy and communication, genetics, information transfer, ecology, and interactions.
The AP Biology Exam is 3 hours long. A Multiple Choice section lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and consists of 69 questions and a Free Response section lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and consists of 8 questions. Students are allowed to us simple four-function calculators (with square root) throughout the exam.
Physics: The AP program offers four Physics courses and exams: AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2 (both algebra-based courses that do not require students to have taken calculus) and AP Physics C: Mechanics, and AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism (each equivalent to a semester-length calculus-based college course for majors in physical science or engineering).
The AP Physics 1 and Physics 2 Exams are 3 hours long and include 50 Multiple Choice questions and 4 (Physics 2) or 5 (Physics 1) Free Response questions. Each of the AP Physics C Exams lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and includes 35 Multiple Choice questions and 3 Free Response questions.
