Statistics and Pyscology

<p>So I am looking at a very rigorous Junior Year schedule, and was wondering if and how I should tune it down a little bit.</p>

<p>Currently my plan is:
AP lit
differential calculus and trigonometry
AP world
AP physics
Spanish 4
AP Statistics
AP psychology</p>

<p>That's five APs, an honors, and Spanish. Great for college apps, but I would probably go crazy. Stats and psych are supposedly really easy for AP, but that still leaves me with a very rigorous schedule. </p>

<p>My questions are:
1) How essential is AP physics? Especially if you haven't taken normal physics?
2) Would dropping stats or psych be a better option?
3) Should I take the hard classes and just have no free time?</p>

<p>Bump... 10char</p>

<p>AP Lit- Rigorous, lots of reading and writing involved...beyond anything you have been exposed to thus far
AP World- Same as above to slightly lesser extent</p>

<p>I would suggest that, in order to avoid total frustration, drop either Lit or World for something less rigorous. Most top tier colleges care very little for History anyways, and some care less for English as well, but its up to you. I would drop one of them...your higher level math and physics will eat much of your study time, so it is a waste to have to put mundane hours aside to read a Shakespeare book or memorize 50 pages for history. Time is better spent elsewhere, especially if you aren't really a big fan of history or lit in the first place.</p>

<p>Thanks! I'm in APUSH and AP bio this year, and find APUSH challenging but AP bio very easy. I'm definitely more of a science-y person so that seems like good advice. I've heard that lit is very easy at my school, which would be nice but not for the AP test. Would taking the class but not the test itself be a good idea? And how does APUSH compare to AP world?</p>

<p>Talked to all the teachers today. I think I may drop AP world and keep everything else.</p>

<p>Taking the class shows rigor, but the exam is optional so there is no need to take it. However, in my school, students are expected to take the test if they take the course.</p>
