High School Classes

  1. Apr 26, 2010 #1
    I am currently a junior in high school and I am deciding on what classes to take for next year. As of now I am signed up for Physics C(mechanics) and AP chemistry as my science classes. I took Calculus AB this year and I didn't do too well(didnt stay caught up with the homework) and I'm not planning on taking BC my senior year because I can't stand my teacher. I'm figuring that the chemistry class will make up for it and I can just continue calculus in college, but I am interested in majoring in physics for college, so I was wondering if this would be an acceptable plan or not.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    I am a physics major currently finishing my sophomore year. I entered college having taken Calculus AB and Physics B in high school and I am doing just fine. The work, however, is difficult but if you do well on the Physics C exam it might be a relatively easy first two semesters for you.

    Thanks for the reply! Just out of curiosity, what field of physics are you studying the most? I'm really new to all of it but it has really been a cool experience all year and I'm trying to figure out which area I like the most.

    Well, as only a sophomore I am not really able to focus on one particular area of physics. The curriculum at this point dictates what I study.
