It's getting time for me to choose courses for next year. The one thing that has been bothering me is the number of APs and Honors classes to take. What is the ideal number of AP/Honors classes to take in your Junior year. I'm planning to study for the SATs and do extra-curricular activites/sports. However, I also want to keep up my class rank and maintain a high GPA. I was thinking around 4-5 APs/Honors with careful selection. I will ask the teachers for the class's workload and the avg. amount of study time for each. Please offer your advice/experience. Is 5 AP/Honors doable in your Junior Year?? Thanks in advance!6 replies
