AP classes are great, but for many students they’re not enough!
For a thorough review of AP Biology content and strategy, pick the AP prep option that works best for your goals and learning style.
Unlike the multiple-choice section, which is scored by a computer, the free-response section is graded by high school and college teachers.
They have guidelines for awarding partial credit, so you may still receive partial points should you not correctly respond to every part of question in your essay.
In addition, students will conduct all twelve of the Collegeboard AP Biology laboratories.
Goals: Prerequisites: Pre AP Biology, Chemistry I (may take concurrently), and Algebra 1 are required with a grade of 80% (B) for each semester in these courses.
They require using information presented in the question to calculate an answer and enter it in a grid.
Answers can be in the form of integers, decimals, or fractions.
The free response section consists of two long-form free-response questions, one of which is lab or data-based, and six short-form free-response questions that require a paragraph-length argument/response.
You will have 80 minutes to answer all 8 questions and a 10-minute reading period, giving you a total amount of 90 minutes for this section.
