I'm an incoming freshman majoring in undecided engineering.
I took IB HL Physics and IB HL Math in high school.
I think I did pretty well in these classes... got straight A's all two years
Perfect scores on physics IA's and decent scores on math IA's.
and got a 6 in Physics and a 5 in Math (I was expecting a 6 in math though...)
so I've gotten credits for the first year engineering physics and calculus classes.
My concern is that if I decide to skip fist year physics and calc classes, I would miss out on some stuff and not develop a firm math&physics foundation...
Would it be better to just take those classes instead of taking harder classes which I may not be ready for and risking my GPA??
Honestly, although my scores are telling me that I did fairly well on the subjects, I'm not feeling too confident about my mathematical/physics skills and knowledge...
