Doubling up

I'm a freshmen going into sophomore year this September and was wondering if I should double up in Chemistry and Physics, my schedule is as follows

Honors Algebra 2/ Trigonometry
Honors English 10
Free Period
Health
Free period
Honors Spanish 6 (3rd year)
AP World History
Honors Chemistry
Honors Latin

I would much rather have a class during one of those free periods. Would I be able to handle the work? Is it feasible or should I just take physics Junior Year?

    ...Honors AP World History? LOL.
    Double up if science interests you - if it doesn't, then just take Physics Junior year. You have a lot on your plate as is.

    LOL Typo and physics does interest me plus my school offers astrophysics and astronomy as electives so I wanted to get the core classes out of the way secondly precalc is a half semester term so I'm wonder if I should take it alongside trig second semester so I can take AP Calc BC junior year

    If you want to be a scientist/go into a science-related field, I don't see a problem with doubling up. I tripled up during my junior year.

    Well, my school wasn't particularly tough, so it was just another class to me. Not too tough. Depends on the curriculum and school, I guess.

    The school is known for a lot of homework and all classes are taught at SAT level so you only need little review if you want to take the SAT Subject Test
