Junior year workload

This upcoming year I am going to be taking 3 AP classes: AP English, AP Chem (most concerned about), and AP US + Pre calculus and Spanish 2 (not much of a concern). Last year I took all honors and one AP class which was AP World and got a 3 on the AP test. I've gotten solid A's in every class and I am a 4.0 student but I am unsure on how much of a workload I will have this year. The past 2 years I was able to get away with not having to study too much but I am willing to study a lot if I have to. But I'm also concerned about SAT's and have started studying for that. Also, I am on the varsity cheer team which is year round and will require time to. Any advice from people who have taken these particular classes (especially AP chem. I have started studying and memorized the commonly used ions but I'm still a little skeptical) and what the workload is like? I am really trying to maintain a 4.0 but I guess it would be okay if it dropped a little after all colleges prefer AP classes anyways right?

    I took AP chem as a sophomore and its a double block class at my school (we have four classes a day, A day and B day. chemistry is everyday). it was difficult but I managed to maintain a solid 92 for the year and I got a 4 on the exam. I think it really depends how your teacher is, really, because mine was very harsh and pushed us until we couldn't take it. hope I helped!
