AP Physics vs. Honors?

I'm currently taking physics honors and AP chem. I took AP bio last year and honors biology as a freshman. Should I take AP physics my senior year or is physics honors enough? I'm not looking into too many of those very prestigious universities (i.e. Ivies, u chicago, john hopkins, etc.)

    B or C? The C version is more likely to be accepted by colleges for subject credit, but may still not be all that well accepted.

    AP Physics almost seems like a waste of time right now and only one college I'm applying to will take it. I would just take a different science course.

    Agree with last post! I wouldn't take credit for AP any science anyway if you intend to major in science! I'd go for the grade and really become proficient at the course. Also, as an aside, kudos to your HS for having the sense to offer an honors physics prior to AP physics !
