AP Chem and AP Bio?

So this is my first post, but I don't know what to do about my classes for next year.
Next year I will be a senior, and AP classes aren't really offered before that (except APUSH). I have taken honors bio, chem, and physics before and done pretty well, and I think that I want to major in something science related when I go to college, since it is my favorite subject. Here's the classes I was thinking of taking next year:
AP Chem
AP Bio
BC Calc
AP Spanish
Honors British LIterature
I'm just a little bit worried that the workload will be too much and that the classes will be too difficult. If I didn't take AP Chem, my other option would be honors psych, which doesn't sound as interesting to me as chemistry. I really don;t know what to do because I want to take both sciences, but I don't know if it would be too much. Any advice would be great!

    I think you'll be fine as long as you have the prerequisites for these classes. Why are you only taking five classes?

    At my school there are only six blocks a day (in a rotation of 8 days), and the sciences take up a whole block plus extra blocks for labs (2 during the eight day cycle): It's all that fits and 5 or 6 classes is what is normal at my school
