Are These APs OK (For Me) Next Year?

edited May 2007 in AP Tests Preparation
My school offers quite a few APs and I was wondering what I should take. Here is the stats:

Offered (and excluding languages I haven't taken): Calc AB & BC, Stat, Bio, Chem, Physics (One Class for Both Exams), Environmental, English Literature, English Language, Spanish Lit, Spanish Lang, Euro History, US History, US Gov, Comparative Gov, Psych, and Music Theory.

My (Current) Schedule for Junior Year:
AP Calc AB (Required Math)
AP Calc BC (Taking both for BC exam is required)
AP Environmental (My Required Science)
AP English Language (My Required English)
AP US History (My Required Humanity/Social Studies)
AP US Government
Spanish III
Spanish IV

Alternates:
AP Psychology
AP European History
AP Physics

Alright. My school requires anyone taking calculus to take both classes (AB and BC) and count it for two credits. For Biology and Chemistry, I have to take a paired up "Research Methods" class, which is only Honors (not AP) credit. I think that AP US Government would fit with APUSH, but I'm not sure. Most of my APs are cemented in except for Gov. Should I take it out? Also, I am unsure of Euro History. If I get both APUSH and APEH, wouldn't I get overloaded? What should I switch it out with?

I plan to apply to Duke as first choice, then Ivies, and then UNC. I have stellar grades (100% on PreCalc final! WOOT!). I plan to be a Bio/Math major in college.

    Your school is retarded for making you take AB and BC.

    From what I see, most students take Calc AB or BC year-long. Instead, I take both. It seems to me that it's just covering all the bases.

    By the way, I have block scheduling, so I'll take three of my APs on Monday, then the other three on Tuesday, and so on.

    Because BC Calc already covers the material you take in AB calc. Not to mention that the BC exam gets an AB subscore.
