Español 5 Literatura y Cultura

AP Spanish Literature and Culture Exam Day: Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 8 a.m. 


Exam Overview

The AP Spanish Literature and Culture Exam assesses students' proficiencies across a range of modes of communication—with special attention to the interpretative and presentational modes of communication—and asks students to reflect on the many voices and cultures included in a rich and diverse body of literature written in Spanish. Exam questions assess all themes outlined in the course and exam description. Questions are based on works from the required reading list and ones that are not on the required reading list—the latter to allow students to apply what they have learned through the study of the required works and the historical and sociocultural contexts of those texts. The exam expects students to identify, explain, analyze and compare various works of literature, while using appropriate literary terms and while discussing the works within their sociocultural, geopolitical, artistic, and historical contexts.
