Do I need biology for chemical engineering?

Hello! I'm in grade eleven and I am planning on studying chemical engineering or some type of engineering in University. (I plan to apply to Canadian, American, and Birtish universities) Currently, I have biology in high school, however, I do not like it and it is a lot of work and very stressful and I want to drop the course. I'm not sure if biology is important towards studying engineering since once I drop it, I would not be able to take it again. Would dropping is be a good idea or it is usefull. I heard that some universities prefer students to take all three sciences but on most requirements, it states only chemistry and physics is required when applying.

    Hello Cori,
    Thank you for posting a question! I am with you ... biology was not the most interesting subject for me. The good thing about engineering is that it is entirely problem-solving (like math). The memorization portion is minimal. Most programs that I am aware of requires chemistry, physics, and mathematics. I would look into the departments that you would like to apply to on their requirements. Good luck!
    Kind regards,
