Should I drop out of AP Chem? I NEED HELP ASAP

student2022student2022 1 replies3 threads New Member
So I signed up for AP Chem this year (junior year) and I am kinda regretting it. I'm a pretty good student like top 10% of my class. I like to challenge my self but I'm by no means a genius. I took biology last year and I did very well and really loved it. I thought I should take AP Chem this year (AP bio isn't offered to Juniors). My teacher is flying through the material and everyone seems to understand but me. I take honors math but I'm not very good at it and have to study so much to do okay. AP Chem is all math and I suck at it. I have one opportunity to drop out tomorrow and I can't decide. I like a challenge but I'm not sure if I made the right desicion taking this since I'm in honors math and AP language and composition. I don't want my gpa to fall. If I did drop out I would take AP bio senior year. I just feel like a failure if I drop out but I can't handle all this advanced math in Chem this year and the fast moving pace is getting overwhelming. Any thoughts??!?

    Honestly, there is very little "advanced" math in AP Chem (logs). The rest is just dimensional analysis aka stoichiometry. AP Chem is a great class where you learn a lot of important things. I suggest watching Bozeman Science videos if you're having trouble, he really helps.
