Section 1: 60 minutes It is important to move as efficiently as possible through both sections… Read thoroughly, but... Don’t allow yourself to get bogged down in trying to figure out the answer. If you don’t know, leave it blank, star the question, and return to it if you have time. Section 2: 50 minutes response time Use 25 minutes to complete the long FRQ. If you get confused with details, complete all other FRQ then return. Time Management Strategies
