Is it okay if I only take 3 years of history/social science?
This year, I wanted to take AP Chem but due to a scheduling issue had to take AP Bio. So, there are two science courses I still want to take--AP Chem and Honors Physics (no AP at my school), especially because I will most likely major in science. So, my schedule would most likely look somewhat like this, if it all works out:
AP English Lit
Critical Writing H (a required course that I couldn't take this year due to scheduling)
There is a possibility I could fulfill the writing requirement this year by splitting my AP Lang + Comp credit in two and taking a half year lit course (school requires 4 English lit credits and 0.5 writing credits for graduation). If I can do that, I will take either AP Econ of Psychology H, both of which I am very interested in and would love to take.
However, if I can't get out of that course, should I go with 2 science and no history or one of each? And if so, as a possible Chem E major, which one should I go for (I already took Chem H if that helps).
I went to a Pton information session and in the booklet that they handed out it said that they recommend 2 Social Studies classes. I thought that they recommended 2 Social Studies and 2 History, so either they changed their requirements or it was a typo/miscommunication.
