The College Board is pleased to announce the release of the 2007 AP Japanese Language and Culture Released Exam: Multiple-Choice Questions. The 2007 AP Japanese Language and Culture Released Exam: Multiple-Choice Questions may be duplicated for in-class, face-to-face instructional purposes only. Individuals are not permitted to distribute the exam in any Web or electronic format.
Please note that the free-response section of the AP Japanese Language and Culture Exam has been reduced since the 2007 administration and for that reason, the data from the 2007 exam is no longer current regarding overall student performance and is not included in the 2007 AP Japanese Language and Culture Released Exam: Multiple-Choice Questions. We hope that this Released Exam provides teachers an additional, valuable instructional resource that will help students engage in the academic rigor, depth and breadth required in college-level studies.
Multiple-Choice Scores: Beginning with the May 2011 AP Exam administration, there was a change to the way AP Exams are scored. Total scores on the multiple-choice section are now based on the number of questions answered correctly. Points are no longer deducted for incorrect answers and, as always, no points are awarded for unanswered questions.
