The College Board has announced that it is making extensive, fundamental changes to the SATs in order to better evaluate today’s high school students.
“Whatever, I’ll just finish my homework in the morni—”
“Too tired i’ll do it during lunch”
Chemistry more like cheMYSTERY because i have no idea what’s going on
Calculus more like calKILLus because a piece of my sanity dies with every equation
Biology more like BYEology because I’m out
math more like no
nooo we haven’t taken ap art history. :c
but ap lang is pretty awesome. (we’re taking it right now). tonss of writing, definitely! it’s helpful to go to the class with a really good basis in writing essays. and then there’s also the reading (tons of extra outside reading), and of course we have to respond to the things we read by writing essays hahha. if you love writing and thinking critically, then this is the class for you! we haven’t taken the ap exam yet, but I’ve heard that it’s pretty average in difficulty. (:
katie and i are both taking it and we think it’s awesome!! (: for me, it’s like “wooo math + science awesome awesome”. I honestly didn’t like honors chem at all and I was like ‘yeah chem. how bout no’ but ap chem totally changed my mind about that. ;)
hahaha that’s crazy!! which course? I think the smallest class we’ve been in is 14 students.
depends on you!! some people don’t like the super workload and some people can’t handle it, but a few of my friends are just fine with six. (: also depends on your teachers (and whether or not you can get along well with them) and your own goals and aspirations.
at the end of the day, i’d look for that ‘perfect balance’ between ap classes and extra curriculars and your own personal life!
counselors don’t know what they’re talking about a lot of the time, haha, at least that’s kind of the case in our school!
to be honest your schedule doesn’t look that bad (we’re both taking honors precal right now and it’s a-okay!)! definitely do-able, i think. i don’t know if your school does this, but in our school we get to take a class for up to 10 days, and before that 10 days is up, we can choose to ‘drop out’ or drop down a level (ap to honors, honors to reg, etc). if your school does that, i say go for your current schedule and see how it goes for the first week or so of school!
i totally feel you, since i’m taking BC calc and Physics C Electro-Mag next year (my senior year) and it’s freaking me out and I’m scared it’d mess up my senior year too. :/ but there’s really nothing I can do so I’m just going to go for it and play by ear, haha!
Hello! I’m currently replying thru my phone… so excuse the typos!
Bio & Psych are two of my favess. Psych is one of the easiest AP classes, so I wouldn’t worry! I would, however, make tons of flashcards with the vocab. A ton of the AP exam will be on vocab, so save yourself some time and make them as you study unit by unit! (I have about 250 cards at this moment). Plus, think of the money you’ll save since you won’t have to buy the review book brand flashcards now. ^.^
As far as bio goes, I’d defs put forth effort on keeping up with your reading. Make sure you understand your labs too! Be sure that you not only know your stuff, but also how to apply the concept. (Ex, know how and why DNA replicates instead of just knowing what it is).
Best of luck to you!
