Sorry for long post
This is for D21. We are on a block system, and some classes are only fall or spring. I'm looking for some advice on which second test to take (definitely taking Math 2). She does well in everything, but she is definitely a STEM kid, currently thinking premed.
Here are my realistic options:
Bio: She is taking Honors Bio this spring. Planning on AP Bio spring of senior year, although may be able to take it as a junior. Not sure if it is wise to take the subject test before AP Bio. If it doesn't matter, AP Bio fits much better into senior year than junior. So she could take this summer after Honors Bio, or next summer after AP Bio
Chem: She will have regular chemistry her junior year, not honors or AP. She could take the Chem subject test after junior year.
World History: She will take AP World this spring, which sets up nicely to take the subject test in the spring. Not her favorite subject though.
Physics: Like AP Bio, would have to move this class from senior year to junior year. Not AP, not calculus based physics.
US History: She will take APUSH as a junior. The way it is taught in our HS, this would require heavy self study.
Literature is her weakest topic, although I don't really know what the literature test entails.
I'm thinking Math II and either Bio or Chem without the AP class. Is that dumb? She could do AP Bio as a junior in the spring, although the teacher grades that class brutally and I would rather have her take it as a senior. Plus it kind of wrecks her schedule to take it as a junior. I may have her take a world history practice test just to see if it is within reach or not. My guess i that it probably isn't.
Also, do most schools let you choose which scores to send? I might have her take World History just to see how it goes, but if she gets a 500 and has to report it, then that's obviously a bad idea.
