2020 AP Calculus BC Practice Exams
The 2020 AP Calculus BC exam will be very different in scope and structure than previous years, as a consequence of logistical issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The College Board has indicated the test items will be similar to those on past exams, but there aren’t many existing practice materials designed with the 2020 format in mind.
I’ve created two sample practice exams for my BC Calculus students and will share them here for teachers and students looking for additional resources. All are welcome to use them, but keep in mind that these are merely guesses about what the exam might be like in terms of scope and difficulty. I will say that I intentionally tried to make these more challenging than the College Board’s sample exam, which is just a re-combination of existing 2019 items. (I referred to this as Practice Exam #1, which is why you see #2 and #3 below.)
Please use as you see fit. And let me know if they are helpful!
