On The Test

The AP Chemistry exam will cover most intro-level chemistry topics, though prerequisites for the class will depend on the school. It is recommended that students either complete or concurrently take an Algebra II course as this will be used during the AP Chemistry class and on the final exam.

The exam will be made up of the following material:

Structure and Matter 20%
States of Matter 20%
Reactions 35-40%
Descriptive Chemistry 10-15%
Laboratory 5-10%


This exam will be broken up into 2 sections, each worth 50% of your total score.

Section 1

For this section, you will have 1 hour 30 minutes to answer 60 multiple-choice style questions. There are no penalties for wrong answers during this first section, but you will not be allowed to use a calculator.

Section 2

For this section, you will have 1 hour 45 minutes to answer 3 long-answer and 4 short-answer questions. Each question is worth a specific number of points (10 points for long-answer, 4 points for short-answer) so you will be graded on a scale. You are allowed to use a graphing or scientific calculator on this section, but one will not be provided for you.
