Rate the APs I'm taking?

hi I was wondering if you guys could rate on a scale of 1-10 how hard the class was for you guys and the exam. I understand every class and person is different I just want to get a little input.

I'm taking
AP Calculus AB
AP English lang.
AP Physics C
AP Computer Science

Here's an example of rating.
AP Biology: class: 7 test: 8

    AP Calculus AB: Class 2, Test 2
    APUSH: Class 8, Test 6
    AP English Class 10, Test 8
    AP Physics Mech Class 3 Test 4
    AP Physics E/M Class 4 Test 5

    I am just a little darn biased towards engineering subjects which aren't too hard ;)

    AP Calc AB: Class (4), Test (2)
    AP Computer Science: Class (3), Test (5)

    I'll be taking Lang/Physics C next year, but both are supposedly challenging.

    AP Calculus AB: Class (1), Test (1)

    Haven't taken any of the others because my school barely offers any APs

    AP Calculus AB: Class (3), Test (2) — I took BC and it wasn't too challenging; AB should be relatively similar (if not a bit easier) in difficulty.

    AP English lang: Class (7), Test (7)

    I'm definitely not an english person, lol. I haven't taken Phys C, USH or Comp Sci, but I'll be taking only Phys C this year.

    Definitely depends on the person. Also how well you did in the subject previously.
    For AP calc our school required the students to have a 95 in precalc.
    I would expect you would need to have done well in honors physics to take AP physics.
    For English and history it involves alot of reading and writing papers.
