Putting physics 8A off for another semester?

I'm an IB pre-med 2nd year, and for pre-reqs, all I have left are Bio 1A/L and Physics 8 series. I was wondering if it'd be okay for me to take Bio 1A/L + two easy breadths next semester and take Physics series during my 3rd year? Or should I just take Bio 1A/L + Physics + 1 easy breadth? After taking Bio 1A/L, I should have enough grade points to declare IB.

I'm just wary/trying to strategize because I'm trying to salvage my GPA. Thanks for reading!

    Yep that's perfectly fine, and probably the smarter idea.. Bio 1AL takes up a lot of time too (even though it's a 2 unit class). If you're in no rush to get the prereq's done or do the MCATs earlier, then I say - go with the slower route.
