How will the Create performance task changes affect exam timing?

Students are required to complete at least 9 hours of in-class work on their program code, video, and Personalized Project Reference. For the end-of-course exam, students will have two hours to complete the multiple-choice section of the exam, and one hour to respond to two questions related to the code in their Personalized Project Reference. The two questions include four distinct prompts: Written Response 1, Written Response 2(a), Written Response 2(b), and Written Response 2(c). Students will have access to their Personalized Project Reference while responding to these prompts. Each written response corresponds to one of four categories: Written Response 1: Program Design, Function, and Purpose; Written Response 2(a): Algorithm Development; Written Response 2(b): Errors and Testing; and Written Response 2(c): Data and Procedural Abstraction. The specific prompts will vary across the different versions of the exam. More information about what each of these categories consist of can be found in the Exam section of the AP Computer Science Principles Course and Exam Description.
