Self-studying A.P. Sciences

Hi there ;)
Ive heard that people self study ap courses in their own and then take the ap tests in may and if they pass colleges account that ap. I will be taking ap physics and ap us history and ap literature next year along with the basic courses of Spanish 3 and precalculus. My school does not allow a student to take more than one ap science over the course of high school so I was actually planning to self study the ap sciences next year. I'm going to be a junior and I want to self study ap bio and p chem. I know I may sound a bit crazy and ut probably isn't recommended but I want to know whether it's Possible to self study and pass the ap tests in may, hopefully with a 4 or higher. I'm willing to put in the time and effort but if it's going to be futile, I'd like to know too. Thanks :)

    As long as you take it seriously and actually study, you can get the credit. May want to consider getting a textbook and possibly a out of school tutor to help you with some of the complicated stuff.

    Yeah I'll definitely get textbooks and ap prep books maybe no tutor though. Does anybody know/is somebody who self studied ap bio and/or ap chem? Any advice?

    Do lots of practice problems after each learning session, review the explanations for right and wrong answers. That's the key.
