AP Macroeconomics Past Exam Questions

Free Response Questions

Please note: Effective June 1, 2022, some questions from previous AP Macroeconomics Exams may no longer perfectly align with the course updates that take effect starting with the May 2023 exam. These questions remain available because teachers indicate that imperfectly aligned questions still provide instructional value.
