One might wonder how you managed to get into the final year of a physics degree without taking a complete sequence of calculus. Maybe I'm not understanding something. Anyway your situation is what it is. I would aim to get the calculus 3 course done as soon as you can if you're intending on taking an upper year E&M course.

That's assuming you have time over the summer to do such a thing. Generally I think it's best in most cases for students to be working full time over the summer if they can. It builds up real world skills and give you some life experience that can be really helpful once school is over.

Take no scientific courses during the summer, unless your summer session is 18 weeks in length. Choose something to study without enrolling in it during the summer.

When you say scientific do you mean the computer science or he calculus?
