AP Biology Redesign

Advanced Placement is being redesigned to test more conceptual understanding. These are draft examples of the types of questions that will be found on the new AP Biology test.

New Sample Questions
CollegeBoard AP Biology Sample questions 2001-2010

"For biology, the change means paring down the entire field to four big ideas. The first is a simple statement that evolution “drives the diversity and unity of life.” The others emphasize the systematic nature of all living things: that they use energy and molecular building blocks to grow; respond to information essential to life processes; and interact in complex ways."
