Hello! It would mean a lot if I could have your input. I am going to take IB HL Biology next year and I am trying to choose another class to take with it. Since I already took AP Biology, I know IB HL Biology will just be a review so I want to take on another challenge. Right now, I’m torn between taking AP Chemistry and AP Physics 1. Here is some background information…
- I have taken regular chemistry before so I have some background. I have never taken physics before.
- I have more interest in chemistry because I would like to go on the pre-med track in college.
- The AP Chemistry teacher at my school is infamous for his bad teaching. The AP Physics teacher is praised by my peers because of how good of a teach she is despite the extreme difficulty of the course.
I think another important factor is… do colleges care more about you displaying a specific interest through your course selection or just having a variety? I have never taken a physics course throughout my high school career. Thank you!
