    • 1 Extended Essay (Enduring Issue based upon 4-5 Documents)

Guidance

  • For the June 2018 Global History II Regents Exam:
    • 30 Multiple Choice questions instead of 50 are given. This means that students need to receive at least 66% of these correct or a 20 out of 30 correct. This portion of the exam is still 55% of the total score.
    • Students will need to complete both of their essays, but should have more time since there are only 30 Multiple Choice Questions
    • It is a good idea to cover more constructed-response type questions since the exam will change next year and the exam in the past has had those questions but not to the extent as to what the exam will look like in June of 2019.
