Senior Year Schedules
I saw somebody do this for juniors but how many AP classes are you guys taking for senior year. If you're already a senior, how many are you currently taking? Also which AP classes are you guys taking specifically?
For me, it was all science and mathematics. I took 7 AP classes my senior year because the opportunity for me to do so was restricted from 9-10, limited to three in 11, and then available for them all at 12. Hence from all years, I had 10 in total. They were: 11 grade, Chemistry, English Lang., and AP US History; AND 12 grade, Comp. Sci., Bio, Calculus, Physics, Enviro., English Lit., and Government.
How did you perform in all those AP classes in your senior year?
6 A’s and 1 B this semester it seems I’ll finish off. Meanwhile my first semester wa straight. I believe taking AP’s like Calculus-Physics and Bio-Enviro. are so interrelated that the study time for one is like for both. The B is in Literature, but that’s because I have to sacrifice a LOT of time for Reading—it’s strenuous. Also note, because of the pandemic, I had no EC’s this year unfortunately... :’ (
Trying to decide between AP Chemistry and AP Physics 1 for next year, which would you say has been more difficult for you?
In all honesty, Chemistry is probably that one subject that I just have it down—we all have that one subject we are really “adept” at. So I couldn’t offer a personal opinion. But from both subjects, I’d say they are about equal! Chemistry applies math, basic particle physics, and an understanding of concepts and relations. Meanwhile physics is math (algebra) heavy and involves concepts and relations too, but on a more fundamental level than chemistry. Hence, if you are great with applying math into concepts, I’d say physics, because for chemistry you have to apply math to concepts AND then that into a problem-set.
I took 4 AP classes this year: Calculus AB, US History, English Language and Composition, and Physics 1. I'm focusing on sciences next year for premed, so I'll be taking: AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Statistics, AP French, and AP English Literature. I'll have 10 AP classes on my transcript by the time I graduate.
I'm trying to take AP Calc AB next year. Did you take a pre-calc course beforehand? Did you feel that you needed one?
I did take a pre-calc course before and I think that it's really important for AB Calc. A lot of the concepts you learn in precalculus are important for what you learn in Calculus.
I'm taking AP Lit, AP Chem, AP Spanish, and either AP Calc AB or APUSH. i'll have taken 7 AP's by the time I graduate, plus a few college classes.
How's AP Literature? What type of literature do you guys assess? Also what other college classes did you take? I'm curious!
Ah sorry dude, I said "taking" as in "will be taking", sorry for the mix-up. I had a meeting about it earlier this year and they said it's split between poetry, novels, and a play or two. I've taken Gen Bio and I will be taking intro to graphic design and maybe a molecular biology course next semester.
I'm taking AP Calc AB, AP Chem, AP Comp. Sci A, and AP Psych next (senior) year. Would have continued with AP Spanish but I liked my other electives better and decided I could stop since I made it to Spanish 4 already.
I'm gonna take AP Physics 1, AP Calc AB, AP French, AP Lit, and AP Spanish Lang :)
I'm taking AP Calc BC, AP Spanish Lang, AP Lit, and AP Physics. Good luck to my fellow seniors!(and everyone else of course.)
I'm taking AP Psychology, AP Chemistry, and AP Literature my senior year. I'm not going to go heavy on the APs because I've taken plenty these past three years and next year I want to moreso focus on getting a high unweighted GPA and high-achieving awards from my ecs.
