I need to choose the best schedule for next year (I'm going to be a Junior in High school). Please help me decide which option I should go with. Thanks! 1st choice: (7 Classes) AP Calculus APUSH AP Biology AP Enviornmental science English 11 H (Highest English 11 class in our school) Chemistry H (Highest Chemistry class in our school) Spanish 2 2nd choice: (7 Classes) AP Calculus APUSH AP Biology AP Computer Science AP Environmental Science English 11 H (Highest English 11 class in our school) Spanish 2 -Feel free to arrange the classes in which you think is most rigorous. I would like around 1-2 hours of free time everyday for other things so please apply this restriction also. Also, should I take AP Stats or AP Enivornmental Science or replace them with AP Computer science? Please read below before considering, Thanks! Ok, here's the deal. I haven't taken Chemistry, and I heard that it is better that you take it Junior year because the majority of people do (according to the Chem teacher). He said that taking Chemistry next year would put me on par with all of the other kids would supposedly have taken Chemistry in their Junior year. Is this true? If so, should I take Chemistry Honors over AP Computer Science? Will the honors class be counted like an AP class since it is the highest Chemistry class we have? Also, both Chemistry Honors and AP Computer Science are taught by the same teacher and he doesn't teach AT ALL. All the students do everyday is talking about irrelevant topics and therefore the teacher doesn't teach everyone else. The thing is that his tests are super hard and not curved so many people end up failing the tests and getting mostly C's and B's. Also, I think Chemistry Honors is harder than AP Comp Sci so I will end up studying a few more hours more than the AP class. They should be weighted relatively the same though right? Also, please tell me how hard this class is from the grades of students that are taking the Chemistry Honors class: 4 people have A's 7 people have B's 14 people have C's 6 people have D's 4 people have F's I've asked people about the workload of this class and they said it would take around 1-2 hours of studying every other day and around 3-5 before tests! Thanks for helping me decide!
