    My school has 2000+ students and we schedule next week on Monday, similarly to @anthonytheboy and I am super nervous. I just want to make the right decision. Oh yeah, they do this because as soon as we get out of school for this year, we get our junior year schedule (teachers and all). Here's what I've come down to taking for next year:

    AP Economics
    AP U.S. History
    AP Lang and Comp
    Honors Precalc
    Honors German IV
    Chemistry (I honestly hate science and at my school, Honors Chemistry is Hell)
    Ceramics (have to get an art credit in order to graduate)

    How about you guys?

    Us history

    @collegeready33 what is honors Precalculus bc. Does it prepare you for Calc BC?
  • excovererexcoverer Registered User Posts: 594 Member
    Mine is also not set in stone as some things could change, but it'll look something just like this:

    -AP English Language
    -AP US History
    -Pre-Calc HN w/Trig (If I continue to maintain an A the second semester of Alg.2 Honors.)
    -Regular or AP Physics 1 (I'm having a lot of trouble deciding between these two courses.)
    -AP Psychology
    -Spanish 4 Honors
    -Philosophy and World Religions

    @collegeready33 @ab2002 You guys have great schedules! Good luck next year!

    Have a good day and happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day!

    We don't have to make any definite decisions yet but here's what I'm thinking:

    Honors English (highest english for juniors, prepares for AP Lang exam)
    US History (regular)
    AP Physics 1
    AP Calc AB (only one the school has unfortunately)
    Spanish 3 (no honors offered)
    Digital photo for visual/performing art credit
    Either AP Enviro Sci or AP Comp Sci Principles for an academic elective

    Really can't decide between APES and AP comp sci. Any suggestions? Loving AP Bio this year, but feel like comp sci would look better...

    2 things,

    1. if it prepares you for the AP lang exam, why doesn't you school just call it AP language lol

    2. I've heard APES doesn't look that good on an application, unless you're genuinely interested in the environmental sciences

    @Candyblossom1245 at my school there are three precalculus classes.
    Precalculus is taken before calculus
    Honors Precalculus AB is taken before AP calculus AB
    Honors Precalculus BC is taken before AP calculus BC

    My schedule
  • HS studentHS student Registered User Posts: 173 Junior Member
    Woah... 6 APs and Multivariable... that's going to be intense! @Foreboding

    @trumpetmathgeek Your schedule looks a lot like mine, except I'm taking a couple of PLTW classes instead of the AP sciences, and I'm not in band.

    I signed up for AP Lang but at my school, they never seem to actually have an AP Lang class. I think it's because not enough people sign up, but I'm not really sure. So I might have to change that. And I'm definitely going to talk to my gc because I have a bunch of questions!

    @Microsoft_Ninja some schools might let you use score choice for the subjects. Don't panic, and definitely DON'T delete your CB account!

    Also, I'm glad so many of us are doing AP Physics 1 - I'm taking it next year too and I'm kinda scared, so hopefully I won't have to ask too many homework questions haha

    My next year's schedule is going to look something like this:

    AP Spanish 5
    AP English Language and Composition
    AP Statistics
    AP/IB SL Psychology (not sure which route I want to take yet)
    IB SL European History
    AP/IB SL Biology (dual class)
    AP/IB SL Art History (although this may be switched out with AP/IB HL Chemistry)
    TOK (half-year) / AP Student Gov (half-year)

    All your schedules look fantastic!!! I hope next year will be a good year for us. I don't know how it is at other schools, but here, junior year is generally considered the year of death, especially for IB students.

    Haha junior year has a reputation for being pretty tough
