The Course Conundrum

Hi everyone. Hope everybody reading this is doing well.

As almost everybody, I'm stressing over picking my courses for the 12th grade. Here are the classes I'm thinking of doing next year:

1. AP Literature (I've been on the English AP/honors track my whole high school career)

2. AP Chem (my first AP/honors course in STEM since my freshman year, I just fell in love with Chemistry in the 10th grade, though it was college prep)

3. Regular pre-calc

4. AP Government/AP Macroeconomics (Both semester long-I've also been in social science AP track my whole high school career)

5. Journalism (non-negotiable, my favorite elective)

6. Spanish (non-negotiable)

7. and an ROP nursing internship my first semester (non-negotiable)

Will I be overwhelming myself? I want to have fun in my senior year too!

Depends on you past schedule, AP Chem is considered a pretty hard class, but if you really like chem, you’ll do well (Although I recommend looking over your past notes a couple of weeks before school starts).

1) If you did AP Lang and you been on track to take this class, then you should take. There is a lot of reading though.

2) What I said above

3) Take this to stay on track to take Calc 1 in college if you need it for your major. It’s only a little harder than Algebra 2.

4) AP History in overlaps a lot, so if you taken a couple AP History classes before, you’ll be fine. AP Macro is pretty easy from what I’ve heard.

5 - 7) It’s what you want to do, so do it.

Don’t get me wrong, these APs are still gonna be hard and time consuming, but you’ll do well in them. Senior year is the time to have fun, and if you manage your time right, you’ll have time to have fun and still have time left over.

Best of Luck!
