    If I choose APS/C mode on full frame camera, will the light exposure be darker on crop mode ?

    It will be the same exposure. Exposure does not change due to imaging format.

    1/125 at f/8 will produce the same exposure whether it's a cell phone, a mirrorless, a full-frame DSLR, even an 8x10 studio camera.

    exposure might change lens to lens slightly. as well as white balance.

    Choosing the APS-C format will not change your exposure, but changing the exposure mode (i.e. spot, center-weighted, or matrix to use Nikon terms) may.
