Yes, it does look realistic. I recommended this to someone else already, but I'll say it to you too. Don't take AP Bio without taking chemistry first. Chem is a prerequisite for AP Bio and it has been reported that people who don't take chem before AP Bio don't do so well on the exam, so you probably won't do so well in the class either. You can self study chemistry in the summer.

Yes, this plan seems realistic but still rigorous! The only suggestion I have is to maybe make one of your math classes in the future honors if your school offers it (ex: honors Pre-Calc or Honors Algebra II). I think it might help you succeed in AP Calc BC. It could also show colleges that you can improve upon your skills & challenge yourself. You could apply the same thinking to Mandarin (although I know that sometimes memorizing characters/character strokes as well as speaking can be difficult already in Mandarin :))

Hope this helps!

I worry about 11th and 12th grade, I recommend only 2 AP classes a year. if you find 2 is really easy you can try three and if you find 3 easy you can try 4, but without knowing how you feel about 2, I would recommend only 2 AP classes a year.
