The exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes long and has two sections — multiple-choice and free-response. The multiple choice section is worth 45% and the free-response section is worth 55% of the final Exam Score. 

Section I: Multiple Choice | 52 to 55 questions | 1 hour | 45% of Exam Score

Excerpts from non-fiction texts are accompanied by several multiple-choice questions.


Section II: Free-response | 2 hours and 15 minutes (includes a 15-minute reading period) | 3 Free-Response Questions | 55% of Exam Score

This section tests your skill in composition in three areas:

  • Synthesis: After reading several texts about a topic, you will compose an argument that combines and cites at least three of the sources to support your thesis.
  • Rhetorical analysis: You will read a non-fiction text and analyze how the writer’s language choices contribute to the intended meaning and purpose of the text.
  • Argument: You will create an evidence-based argument that responds to a given topic.
