THE POINTS FIT THE QUESTION

• YOU NEED TO LABEL THESE PARTS IN YOUR ANSWER.
• FOR EXAMPLE: A) THEN WRITE YOUR ANSWER, SKIP A LINE AND WRITE B) THEN WRITE YOUR ANSWER, ETC.
• THERE IS NO INTRO, CONCLUSION, OR THESIS IN AN AP GOVERNMENT FRQ
• EACH PART IS WORTH ONE, TWO, THREE POINTS DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ARE ASKED TO
DO
• FOR EXAMPLE IF PART A OF THE QUESTION ASKS YOU TO DEFINE A POLICY AND PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE, THAT
MEANS PART A IS WORTH 2 POINTS.
• GET IN THE HABIT OF DETERMINING HOW MANY POINTS EACH QUESTION IS WORTH
HOLD ON- IT ISN’T THAT EASY
