    I'm currently studying in a country which is neither the US/UK, but I go to an international school so I'm able to do both US/UK exams. I'd like to go to university in Germany and study Biology. However, I am currently in the 'Literature' section of my school, although I going to take AS Level math in my senior year (as well as AP + AS Biology)

    Now, my problem is that when searching for admission requirements for Germany, I've found that to apply to Biology I need AP Calculus AB/BC. I am not able to do those because of my school's pesky requirements, but I am doing AS Level math (not continuing on to A Level). So, is the AS considered equal to the APs enough to apply to Germany?

    Dunno man but AS maths is reasonably simple and the calculus in AS is rather easy and people with good basic math knowledge could pick it up,However A2 calculus is much more advanced to AS so I'd image the whole Alevel or A2 is AP equivalent
