Free Response Questions (FRQs) for AP Environmental Science

 

·         On the AP Exam, you will be responsible for answering 4 FRQs

 

·         Below is a list of FRQs from 2000-2015 that are organized by topic.  I encourage you to study these because they will be the same format as the questions you will see on the AP Exam this year! 

 

·         These links do not contain the scoring guidelines and student work samples that show the answers.  You will have to go to https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/apcourse/ap-environmental-science/exam-practice to login to the AP College Board site where those documents can be looked up.
