Self studying for AP chemistry, physics and biology?

<p>Hey there, this is my first post!
Well, the thing is I want to take these 3 AP classes, but the only school in my country that offers them is 6 miles away from my city. So I'd like to know if it's possible to take this tests studying by myself. I'm a sophomore and 1st trimester is about to finish so i don't think i will have time to prepare myself this year. Is it possible? And if not, do you think that not taking any APs will hurt me when aplying to college, having in count that i didn't have the oportunity to take them?
Thank you in advance.</p>

<p>Talk to the school about it. It's possible, but only if the school's fine with your taking the exam at their school.</p>

<p>Biology is self-studyable. Chem is a bit harder. Physics is a lot harder (well, C is at least, B isn't bad).</p>

<p>If APs are not offered, it will not hurt you. Colleges will know and understand that APs were not offered at your school. If you do choose to self study, it'll make you look better though. Shows you are motivated and driven outside of the classroom.</p>

<p>I don't know about you, but self-studying 3 AP sciences in one year would be kind of hard for me. I would drop 1, but if you think you can handle it, then go for it.</p>

<p>I assume that, since there is only one school in your country with APs, that you don't live in the US? If so, colleges certainly don't expect you to take them.</p>

<p>Well, i fell reassured now that I know they don't expect me to take them. However, I'd really like to take at least the Physics AP tests, since i really like the subject and I'd like to broaden my knoweldge. Will it be really THAT hard if i only take that subject?</p>

<p>Well, again... it depends on if its B or C. I know people that take the Physics C class and find the exam hard. Physics B isn't bad at all, but it's aimed towards students NOT going into the physical sciences. I plan on studying Physics B this summer/next year.
However, I'd say if you're good at memorization and have the time, I'd also go for Bio. It wasn't so bad and wouldn't take anywhere near as much time as Chem would.</p>

<p>Not to mention, in going to a math/science high school, I know several students that take multiple science classes (even APs) and are fine. I suppose it depends on how much you love science. If you're considering a career in it, then I'd go with the 2.</p>

<p>It depends on which physics you are taking. If it's B, it's doable as long as you study long and hard for all three exams (or you've had good preparation in honors).</p>

<p>Or you could take the class online. Georgia Virtual School is an accredited online program managed by the Georgia Department of Education. Out of state students pay $600 for a full course and $300 per half unit. They offer AP Biology, Chemistry, and Physics B.</p>
