Is it a good idea for me to take AP Chem my senior year
Answered

I am usually an A student, but I got a B+ in Chem 1. I am very interested in chemistry, I just wish I was naturally better at it. I took APES this year and am doing well and now I'm trying to pick between AP Bio and AP Chem for next year's schedule. I like the teacher for Chem much better than BIo. I just don't know

Let me tell you, Chem is the hardest AP class there is so if you are really interested in it go for it but just be careful because it's very hard and I struggled in it a lot.

I think that taking AP Chem would be better for you, even though you got a B+ in Chem 1. If you are interested in Chem, even if it is difficult, then I would definitely take AP Chem. Being interested in a subject should definitely help you succeed. Plus, having a good teacher that you like can make or break how well you do. Either way, best of luck!

AP Chemistry is quite difficult (I'm taking it currently), so you'll have to put in a lot of work in inside and outside of class. But if you have a good teacher that you like and are willing to put in the time, it's a great class to take. Bio is easier but might become more stressful if you don't like the teacher.
