Students enrolled in Advanced Placement® VHS courses are expected to take the AP® exam, and to report their AP® exam scores to VHS.
By enrolling in an AP® VHS class, the student authorizes their school administration to report AP® exam scores to VHS.
Biweekly examinations will test students' knowledge of the material as well as prepare them for the AP® examination.
Due to the volume and level of the material, this course is designed to challenge extremely motivated students who have a strong interest in the Biological Sciences. Students are expected to complete their summer assignment before the course begins and submit their work by the end of Week 1.
Divided up evenly, this would mean you'd get 15 minutes per question.
However, try to spend no more than 10 minutes on each short answer.
Exam results will not affect the student's VHS grade or future enrollment in VHS courses. Students are expected to complete their summer assignment before the course begins and submit their work by the end of Week 1.
There is also a lab kit for this course that must be purchased for an additional fee of 5.
The short-answer questions are worth 4 points each, whereas the long questions are worth 8-10 points each.
(From 2013 to 2019, this Bio section had two long questions and six short-answer questions.) You'll need to pace yourself wisely on this section.
