If the kid DOES take an additional year of language is it absolutely unwise to skip a year and take it in 12th grade??
So next question: maybe the biology isn't so important after all?? Could the kid get away with just the term-contained course in Cellular Biology? Or no Biology at all?
My kids' high school required biology.
I have always had the impression that colleges want 3-4 years of foreign language study regardless of the level of proficiency.
Also, putting the pieces together, I'm assuming the proposed schedule for next year is:
• Math 5XX
• Physics 5XX
I'll tell you right now that this will be a crapload of work.
And, while my advisor came around, he did not originally concur.
For most boarding schools, it's physically impossible to take a year in each core subject plus do the HS's requirements for PE/music/art/religion.
I highly recommend @skieurope to take biology while in college. - biophysics, molecular biology, computational biology or something
Not sure this is going to be much better:
Any thoughts on if they would have covered enough material in AP Bio and PreCalc by the SAT date in the beginning of May?
The precalc question is specific to your school. My guess is probably.
AP Bio (or AP Chem or AP Physics) will not prepare for the Subject Tests. The Subject Tests cover HS material, while AP (aside from being college material) is more in depth and less broad than the Subject Test covers. If he has not already got a prep book, he should get one to figure out where the holes may be.
