    Not sure, you'll have to check their syllabus and determine whether their dotpoints are as intense as NESAs. (content, memorisation... etc).

    Anyway, what uni do u wanna do electrical engineering at?

    AP Is kinda like an distinction or College credit, if im not wrong, the courses are NEARLY the same, but they often have a bit more theory than us,
    Im sure AP Calc is similar to Math 3u Calc at hardest
    i am planning to study in America too, so I have done a bit of research and found out that: they do care about AP if your school PROVIDES you with the opportunity, but we dont have AP system b4 uni in Aus, so they see what topics you did and how much you earnd in the respective subjects

    Hope taht helps!

    Would 2u HSC physics be the same difficulty as AP physics 1 or AP physics 2
