How long is the administration of the AP Japanese Language and Culture Exam?

  • The AP Japanese Language and Culture Exam is approximately 2 hours long and has two sections: multiple-choice and free-response. For more information, visit the course and exam page. 
  • Additional time should be expected for tasks such as distributing materials (i.e., scratch paper and AP ID label sheets), completing identification information, reading instructions aloud, and collecting materials. The total time of an AP Exam administration can vary considerably, depending on the number of students involved. See “Estimated Timing for AP Exam Administrations” in the AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 2. All students must take the break at the same time and be dismissed at the same time at the end of testing.
