No, that test was definitely more difficult than any of the practice tests I’ve taken, my peers mostly agreed too.

I was also surprised at how much the example focused on pollutants (Mercury and ozone especially).

But I thought the FRQs were a little easier than the MC, I can’t go into the specifics of the MC exam because of collegeboard rules, but the FRQs are released now, so here goes:

Question 1 was the hardest for me. My mind completely went blank on the important of sediment insertions/deposits for a river. I remembered eutrophication for fertilizer runoff, but not the silts.

Question 2 was the easiest on the exam, it was just simple calculations and 90% common sense. Hardest part about it was the fact we couldn’t use a calculator.

Question 3 was the ozone question, and it was entirely based upon your knowledge of how ozone is formed and destroyed. If you remembered the basics to these (like I did), the question should’ve been a breeze.

Question 4 was the biodiversity question. When I first looked at the different parts, I thought part a and the last part were almost the same question, but other than that, I wasn’t too confused by it.

Still, most colleges need only a 3 on this exam for credit. Good luck on your score!

Eh to be honest it was kinda middle of the road for me. If you can remember the questions (esp. free responses) try to review what your answers were and estimate your score. If you need study tips use a Barron’s AP book, its what helped me.

If you don’t send the scores they will see nothing, but if you send the scores, I’m not entirely sure about if they can directly see the free responses. Even if they can, they won’t really care about the handwriting, more about the substance. Best of luck on Gov and Econ! I’ll be taking Econ next year!
