The Exam Test your knowledge of world history -- and gain some college credit while you're at it -- with the AP World History Exam. About the Exam The three-hour-and-five-minute exam includes a 55-minute multiple-choice section and a 130-minute free-response section. Section I: Multiple-Choice The 70 multiple-choice questions cover world history from the Foundations period up to the present. Several questions are cross-chronological but, for the most part, the subject breakdown is: Foundations period: c. 8000 B.C.E. to 600 C.E. -- 19–20 percent 600 C.E. to 1450 -- 22 percent 1450 to 1750 -- 19–20 percent 1750 to 1914 -- 19–20 percent 1914 to the present -- 19–20 percent Unlike other multiple-choice tests, random guessing can hurt your final score. While you don't lose anything for leaving a question blank, one quarter of a point is subtracted for each incorrect answer on the test. But if you have some knowledge of the question and can eliminate one or more answers, it's usually to your advantage to choose what you believe is the best answer from the remaining choices. Section II: Free-Response There are three free-response questions. You'll write a document-based essay (DBQ), a change-over-time essay, and a comparative essay. Each essay is counted equally toward your final grade.
