With AP Lang's new changes in 2019-2020, there are major changes to the free-response section with new 6-point analytic rubrics. I talk about 1-4-1 as a key component of the three essays, which stands for the point distribution for the essays. You earn one point for the thesis, four points for evidence and commentary, and one point for sophistication. I break down the specific rubric category for every essay in this live review, with emphasis on the 4 points of "evidence & commentary", given that they make up 2/3 of your free-response score (or roughly 37% of your total AP score).
