I need a lot of opinions lol. I am currently a junior with a 3.75 uwgpa with pretty good extracurrciulars I'd say. By the end of this year I will have taken 4 AP classes, 1 IB class, and 1 honors math class. However, in both the IB and honors class, I got a low b. Those classes were honors algebra 2 and IB math (same as honors pre-calc). I know a lot of schools like students taking calculus, but I'm not sure if having an 80 in both honors pre-calc and honors algebra 2 will go well for me. I was also thinking of taking AP statistics, but the teacher is one of the worst in my school, and the class itself might even be more difficult than AP calc, despite the usefulness. However, I think it might be easier to get an A in stats than calc, not sure tho. Also, I feel that I will need a gpa boost because I'm not sure if my gpa will drop or not. Overall, I think I'd have more interest in stats, but I know that calc is more practical for college. I could also not take a math next year because I'm planning on taking AP comp sci which counts as a senior math credit, it just wouldn't be as ideal. Thank you for anyone who took the time to read this!

Hi **@dancer2309**!

If the teacher isn't good enough, there's no point in taking AP Stats. If you're into CS, go for AP Calc AB. Dual enrollment stats is a workaround but calculus would be better for a CS major.

lol I actually am thinking about either the cs or business field, which is where the usefulness of taking calc would be. however, the teacher for stats is really bad, and my school doesnt allow me to de math classes unless its calc 3
