Most difficult AP class?

Hey guys, I'm planning my classes for senior year and I want to challenge myself. Which AP class do y'all think is the most difficult? I'm open to any subject, just looking to see what everyone else thinks!

Hey there! The difficulty of an AP class can vary depending on your personal strengths, interests, and the quality of your school's teachers. However, some notoriously challenging AP classes include AP Calculus BC, AP Physics C (both Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism), and AP Chemistry. These classes often require a strong foundation in math and science, as well as solid problem-solving skills.

On the other hand, if you're more interested in humanities, AP Literature and Composition and AP U.S. History can also be demanding, requiring you to analyze texts and historical events critically. Remember, though, that the level of difficulty can vary from person to person, so it's essential to reflect on your abilities and interests before choosing a challenging AP class. Your teachers may also be able to provide guidance on courses you would find both challenging and enriching.

Good luck with your senior-year course schedule!
