Should I double up on Honors Physics and Honors Chemistry?

I am a freshman in high school. I am currently taking Honors Biology, and I was wondering if it is a good idea to double up on Honors Physics and Honors Chemistry in my sophomore year.

    I just finished taking Honors Chem and Marine Biology (survived sophomore year!) at the same time and while Marine Biology was really fun and easy, Honors Chem was really hard. Luckily, I had a good teacher and science is my strength. I would suggest doubling up on sciences junior year. I also think it would be a little hard to take two core science courses at the same time unless you are also really passionate about STEM. Are you planning to go into a STEM career?

    I've had several classmates who have doubled up on H Chem and H Physics and they were able to do well in both classes, if you enjoy science and can stay on top of the work, then I'd say that it is very doable.

    @SaraiM1 Yeah. I was thinking of going into medicine, but I do want to explore chemistry and physics to see if one of those fields would be better suited for me. Thank you for the help!
