Chem 101 vs Biol 121

Hi guys, I'm going to be an incoming premed student majoring in biology, and I just wanted to ask: how feasible is chem 101 with minimal chem knowledge? The last time I took any form of chemistry was freshman year of highschool, and right now I'm sort of self studying the AP chem curriculum on Khan Academy (but I doubt by the end of the summer my knowledge would ultimately be anywhere near to a student that had actually taken the ap course).

I also heard from someone that taking the chem 101-102 sequence "offseason" (i.e. chem 101 second semester freshman year, and 102 first semester sophmore year) is easier in terms of competitiveness/curves. Would it be beneficial for me to take biol 121 first semester freshman year, then follow up with the "off season" intro chem sequence given that my background in biology is significantly higher?
