i go to school in Toronto which unfortunately offers a limited number of AP courses

English
Statistis
Calculus
Physics
Chemistry

i'll be taking English and Calculus.

students who have taken the AP statistics in the school have said that it is easier than another math course which is offered - 'Algebra and discrete math'

is it better to take another AP, even though it is easier than another course? Will admission see that it is easier?

Also, will not having many AP's hurt acceptance chances, even though it has nothing to do with my not wanting to take the courses.

i've heard that admission checks to see programs offered at the applicant's school to ensure that they have taken the most rigorous courses available. Is this true? How do they do this


Many thanks!

Dont feel bad, I go to a school that sends a very large percentage of graduates to top 25/40 schools, and we only offer 3 APs, including zero frosh through junior year
