AP World History Exam Guide
Taking a college-level world history class can be intense and sitting down to the Advanced Placement (AP) World History exam is often downright intimidating. The AP World History exam covers more than just the history of the entire world, which is comprehensive enough to start with. It also tests your ability to analyze and draw conclusions from what you learn.
The AP World History exam is usually used in one of two ways: it can replace a college-level world history class, transferring the credits you gain in high school to your college record; or it can be used to determine which level of world history class you’ll take in college. Currently, AP credits or placement recommendations are accepted in 60 countries and 90% of U.S. colleges and universities.
The exam itself consists of 70 multiple-choice questions, one comparative essay, one continuity /change over time essay, and one document-based essay with a 10-minute reading section. Altogether, you’ll have just over three hours to complete all four sections. Scoring for the exam is based on a computed scale of 1 to 5. Computers will grade your multiple-choice answers while the essays, which contain the weighted questions, will be evaluated according to College Board’s rigorous AP standards.
