This work builds upon the contributions of many great science teachers. Attributions are listed at the end. The good news is that a poor understanding of the question is easy to fix. The free response questions on the AP Biology Test are going to tell you exactly what you need to write. Take a look at a portion of a free response question from the AP Biology test.
How many unique properties of human embryonic stem cells do you need to address? What must you do with these properties? You must explain or describe them Q. What does distinguish mean?
What must you do with a current medical application of human stem cell research? You must describe it. It seems so obvious when you break it down like this. The exam writers even bold key verbs and use all-caps to specify quantities. There are lots of important details in those little sentences.
It really bothers me when students miss points because they glossed over the details. I know they can do better than this and so can you. On exam day, the College Board is going to give you some last-minute words of advice.

The Free Response Booklet Instructions state the following: Each answer should be written out in paragraph form; outline form is not acceptable. Do not spend time restating the questions or providing more than the number of examples called for.
For instance, if a question calls for two examples, you can earn credit only for the first two examples that you provide. Labeled diagrams may be used to supplement discussion, but unless specifically called for by the question, a diagram alone will not receive credit. Write clearly and legibly.
Begin each answer on a new page. Do not skip lines. Cross out any errors you make; crossed-out work will not be scored. However, you are advised to spend the first 10 minutes reading the questions and planning your responses. The proctor will announce the beginning and end of the reading period.
You are advised to spend the minute period reading all the questions, and to use the unlined pages to sketch graphs, make notes, and plan your answers.
Do NOT begin writing on the lined pages until the proctor tells you to do so.
