Is AP BIO worth it if i want to to go into engineering

In my senior year i have both AP Bio and ap physics (and ap lang but that barely counts imo). I'm already concerned about the workload two days in and i want some opinions on if i should drop it or not.

I've already taken 5 other AP classes and have a okayish GPA, along with varsity sports. Any opinions would be helpful.

Yes, taking AP biology can also help you save some time in college.

SUPER. If you take AP Bio and get a 4 or 5 (depending on the school you wanna go to) you can fulfill your bio requirement for your major/degree for engineering. Since you're doing engineering bio won't be useful but it's always mandatory for STEM so doing it now could save you time in the long term. Push hard and succeed! It'll be worth it
