Should I take APchem, BCcalculus, and APphysics junior year?

  1. Feb 9, 2016 #1
    Hi, I'm currently a sophomore and my current classes and grades are :
    Chemistry 1 Honors: A
    PreCalc/Trig Honors: A
    English 10 Honors: A-
    AP World History: A-
    Art 2: A
    Spanish 3: A

    Next year (junior year), I'm thinking about taking AP Chem, BC Calculus, AP Lang, Spanish 4 and USVA History Honors. That leaves me with 2 extra classes. I don't know if I should take AP Physics and Regular
    Psychology or Regular Physics and AP Psychology.
    My school only offers Regular Physics and AP Physics. I don't know if it will be a lot of work next year to take AP Chem, BC Calc, and AP Physics at the same time because I'm stocking up on a lot of AP math and AP sciences. Not to mention, I'm also taking AP Lang, so I would be taking 4 AP's with regular Psychology if I decide to do AP Physics. What do you think I should take and why?!

    Motivation and preparation are very important when considering heavily loaded schedules.

    Which do you like most?
    What do your parents suggest?
    Are any taught by teachers who are particularly inspirational?
    Are any taught by teachers you don't like?
    Are you planning to major in a field where one seems more important?

    Can you not take some of those courses during senior year? Do you have something else planned then?
