    It really varies between person to person, especially the question of which AP is the hardest, but the general consensus is that Psychology is the easiest and Physics C is the hardest.

    I agree with dooit--this topic is very subjective. I thought Calculus BC was the easiest AP test, while the hardest test for me is APUSH.

    Easiest - Calc
    Hardest - Physics

    Out of the ones i've taken, APUSH hardest, comp sci easiest

    For me: AP Euro History was the easiest, AP Macroecon was the hardest.

    If I took Calculus, Physics...or anything like it...that would be the hardest for me.

    In other words, its such a subjective question that it can't be answered correctly or incorrectly.

    If you're good at art, I suppose AP Studio Art would be easy... All you do is submit a portfolio right? No questions, no essays, no study time but for preparing a portfolio which could be really fun if you're into art. I'm certainly looking forward to it next year. ^^

    Hardest- AP bio. There's a lot of memorization involved.
    Easiest- AP Comp Sci (either). My school requires A as a prereq for AB and they're both incredibly easy.

    Easiest-Bio or Calc BC, and I think Stats will be pretty easy for me this year
    Hardest-so far Comp Sci A, I think I'll be adding Physics C Kinetics and Electricity/Magnetism to the list

    It really depends on your personal strengths and the quality of the teacher. See, I'm pretty strong in Science and Math, but I have a first year AP teacher for Physics right now, so it's kinda tough.

    How can Computer Science A be harder than AB?
  • amlariulamlariul Registered User Posts: 145 Junior Member
    never took AB, considering i didn't pass A. ^^;;

    I think that AP Physics B is actually harder than AP Physics C (taken B last year, currently taking C). You have to learn physics from scratch in B, but in C you kind of already know what you're doing. Also, Physics C is easier for me because the Physics C teacher at my school is awesome. So my vote for hardest AP exam would be Physics B.

    For most, applying calculus is an issue in Physics C (at least that's the problem in my class). If you're good at calculus, it's a breeze.
