The day before the exam

The Day Before the Exam

AP Literature


Wednesday afternoon evening

Wednesday afternoon/evening

  • Study your literary device definitions sheet

  • Read over your lit review sheets on works you want to be familiar with

  • Read through Sparknotes, etc. on any work beyond the review sheets that you’d like to be familiar with

  • Read through old essays and comments from Ms. Van Winkle

  • Get a good night’s rest!


Thursday morning before school

Thursday morning, before school

  • Eat a good breakfast. It’s a three and a half hour test with only a short break.

  • Pack yourself a snack, just in case.

  • Bring your stuff.

  • Get to school at 7:30


What to bring

What to Bring

  • 2-3 #2 pencils that are sharpened BEFORE 8 A.M. No mechanical pencils

  • A very good eraser.

  • A blue or black pen that you know has lots of ink and works properly. This is needed for the essay portion.

  • A watch so you can pace yourself. You will not be permitted to have your cell phones out, so you will have to bring a watch to keep track of time during the test. Turn your cellphone into the office. If a cellphone rings during the test, or one is found on you, everyone’s scores can be invalidated.

  • No white out, no highlighters, no colored pencils. All materials like paper, books, backpacks, etc. will be put in the back of the classroom.

  •  Tissues.


Multiple choice reminders

Multiple choice reminders

  • 55-60 questions on 4-5 poetry and prose passages

  • Scoring has changed: there is no penalty for wrong answers or skipped answers. You get credit only for what you get right.

  • Check to make sure your answers line up with the questions.

  • If there is a question you do not understand and/or feel is too difficult, leave it blank and come back to it later

  • Use the strategy! Go back to the whole chunk of the passage, not just the line.


Essay reminders

Essay Reminders

  • You will have to label each page of the essay section with the letter of the prompt.

  • The essays are each worth the same amount, but you will most likely write more on the open-ended question than either of the other two. This is normal.

  • For the poetry and prose analysis, be sure to read the selections carefully, quickly marking places you notice as significant for whatever reason (theme located, device used, etc.)

  • Write a brief outline of what you will write about

  • Analyze, analyze, analyze.

  • ANSWER ALL PARTS OF THE PROMPT

  • HURRY! YOU DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME!
