I’m planning to drop down from honors to regular math for my junior year because I wanted to add psychology. Math is a subject that I struggle with but manage to get pretty good grades (around A- for honors courses). However, it takes a lot of time and practice for me to understand topics in math, and since I’m also going to be tackling AP chem and APUSH in the same year, I decided to drop down from honors to regular math (for next year). Would this hurt my chances of getting into a reasonably good college? I was thinking of schools in the ballpark of Johns Hopkins, Wellesley College, Boston College, UC Berkeley, maybe Brown as a reach school. Since I have gotten good grades in honors math so far, would it look bad if I dropped down suddenly? I just think I would be too overwhelmed, and that regular math would give me more time to absorb knowledge.
Some background is listed below...(sorry if this is too much to read lol)
Freshman year: Honors math, honors environmental science, honors spanish, CP1 history, CP1 english, orchestra, art, P.E.
(Freshman history and english are only offered at CP1 level at my school)
Sophomore year (my CURRENT year): AP biology, honors math, honors Spanish, honors orchestra, honors English, CP1 world history, P.E.
Junior year (NEXT year) I am planning to take: regular math, AP chem, APUSH, psychology, honors Spanish, honors english, honors orchestra, P.E.
Thanks so much!
