Need help making schedule choices!

<p>I am currently a freshman in high school. The following is my schedule for next year (most rigorous available):
PreAP Algebra II
PreAP English II
PreAP German III
PreAP Chemistry
PreAP Physics
Junior Varsity Tennis
*PreAP Computer Science
*Intro to Engineering</p>

<p>As you can see, it is flawed. </p>

<ol>
<li>I need to choose between PreAP Computer Science and Intro to Engineering.
PreAP Computer Science - one year satisfies the required technology credit, the next year if you continue becomes AP Computer Science and you are able to take the AP Computer Science test.</li>
</ol>

<p>Intro to Engineering - two years of engineering courses satisfies the required technology credit. One year could be taken over this summer if I wanted to. </p>

<p>I am very tech-savvy. I build high-end computers and I also build and program robots. However, my future career will most likely be in medicine. </p>

<p>Whichever I choose to eliminate will be replaced with AP World History.</p>

<ol>
<li>I personally asked my counselor if I could be placed in PreAP Physics. Traditionally, on an honors path, people here take Bio, then Chem, then Physics, so they are taking Physics as a junior, whereas I will be taking Physics as a Sophomore, meaning I will be 1 year ahead of everyone else. Is this an okay move or am I leading myself to my doom? Science is my favorite subject and my average in Biology should be a 97-100. I got a C-B in PreAP Geometry the first semester when we were doing proofs, and I am going to get a high 90 this semester.</li>
</ol>

<p>If you're going to be pursuing a career in medicine then do not even bother with engineering. Also, doesn't your school require you to do a history class each year meaning AP World would be a mandatory thing? Well, if not, then this should be your schedule:</p>

<p>PreAP Algebra II
PreAP English II
PreAP German III
PreAP Chemistry
PreAP Physics
JV Tennis
PreAP Computer Science</p>

<p>If a history class IS required then replace PreAP Comp Sci with AP World and push PreAP Comp Sci to next year and do AP Comp Sci in 12th grade.</p>

<p>Well, if you go into medicine, you could examine bioinformatics or the usefulness of bioengineering, biomedical engineering, medicinal engineering, etc.</p>

<p>and AP Computer Science is a joke. I actually could've taken the test this year, because our PreIB course teaches the same stuff as the AP Course.</p>

<p>^ I don't think the course offered to him is actually that type of engineering. It is most likely related to mechanical and electrical engineering as with most other schools.</p>

<p>The schedule includes 8 classes, and history is required. I am asking which class should I take out to put in AP World History, Engineering or Comp Sci?</p>

<p>Yeah I was a little angry that the engineering class I took this year was an introduction to mechanical and electrical engineering instead of a survey of different types of engineering.</p>

<p>^^ you eliminate Intro to Engineering.</p>

<p>Then again, most engineering courses in HS are lacking.
Add AP World and take out Intro to Engineering.</p>

<p>Take out intro to engineering. It won't really get you anywhere.
And yes it is okay for you to take physics as a sophomore. My school goes from bio to chem to physics (or APs) too, but some kids take the courses over the summer. So right now I have this one sophomore in my physics class. We make fun of him a lot for being the only sophomore lol</p>

<p>You should be ok with physics if you're a science person. My school does physics freshman year...</p>
