The draft questions are intended to give the public a sampling of the changes for the spring 2016 exam, giving high school students time to prepare for changes like an optional essay, limited use of a calculator, and no more "obscure" vocabulary words.

The College Board emphasizes that these are just draft questions and "are not a full reflection of what will be tested."

"Actual items used on the exam are going through extensive reviews and pre-testing to help ensure they are clear, fair and measure what is intended," the College Board said in its released materials.
