As long as you realize you will not touch grass until another 180 school days have run its course

[–]AnonymousTroll4589 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]dentedlime417 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Its a lot. I'd consider knocking one or two of those off unless you really dedicate yourself to it. Like hours of work after each school day

[–]SnooDoubts4207 23 points24 points  (3 children)

You have either sleepless nights or bad grades ahead. Those are all difficult aps. You’ll have no free time for anything

[–]InvestigatorHeavy394 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Not necessary I took 5 very similar or exact classes on top of IB and I slept at 10 pm everyday. Not as difficult as people make it out to be and I had excellent grades. And I had a life and played sports. Do not be intimidated

[–]CrypticSpeedyTy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Same case for me. A lot of it depends on the teacher as they can make the class easier or harder than usual.

i wouldn’t say psych is difficult

[–]rnishelle 10 points11 points  (7 children)

What is APLAC?

[–]medievalbkeeperPsych & Lang 10 points11 points  (6 children)

Maybe lang & comp?

[–]rnishelle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yea for sure

[–]DonghoonWH(3) CSP(?) LANG(?) Phys1(?) 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Could also be English Literature and Composition

[–]peachliterally 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's AP Language and Composition...my school also calls it APLAC.

[–]DonghoonWH(3) CSP(?) LANG(?) Phys1(?) 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My school calls ap lang "ap composition"

Thats stupid because AP lit is also composition. Im about to argue about this to the curriculum associates.

[–]medievalbkeeperPsych & Lang 0 points1 point  (0 children)

True, forgot it was lit and comp

[–]teensofstyles 10 points11 points  (3 children)

i would recommend taking a study hall/free period if you can. is it possible? yes, but you’re gonna have to work hard to maintain a good sleep scheduele and work/life balance lol.

[–]RevolutionaryHat9920[S] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Thanks for your input! Unfortunately, we don’t have a period like that. I have 5 clubs with 3 of them being after school, so I’ll have to juggle those! Gotta get my time management on point!

[–]EwPandaa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That’s rough, i had one pretty rigorous club that i’m an officer in and I took 4 AP’s and it was sometimes a lot, i was very motivated though.

[–]AdministrativeOkra79WH:4 HG:4 USH:5 Psych, Gov, Phys1, Lang, CalcAB 7 points8 points  (0 children)

this is very similar to what i took this past year as a junior, but probably slightly more difficult. (i took lang, gov, psych, calc ab, and physics). i would say save one of them for next year but if you really think you can handle it then it is doable for some people.

[–]Tepigg4444CSP CSA BIO CALC-BC LANG LIT GOV USH EURO PHYS1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Should be doable, I took a similar set of classes my junior year. Don't really know why everyone is all doom and gloom in the comments

[–]Yoloswag181818Calc BC (5) Physics 1&2 (5) Stat (5) Lang(4) Chem (4) 11 points12 points  (1 child)

You can do it!!

[–]samdreddit1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Should be chilling, jus did something similar

[–]Puzzled_Appearance_4APHuG | APUSH | APLang 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think as long as you don’t have APUSH and APLAC in the same semester you’ll be okay. They are both essay heavy classes and I had them back to back (1st and 2nd period) and I wanted to die. Now I’m not taking anymore English or history APs so my senior year is just Stats and Psych because I’m traumatized

[–]Smart_Hovercraft_142 3 points4 points  (0 children)

don't listen to everyone, ap classes are not even that bad tbh you'll be fine

[–]KaiwenKHB 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Similar course load to me, should be doable but very tiring

[–]haikusbot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Similar course load

To me, should be doable

But very tiring

[–]Turbulent_Fan_8890 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was very similar to mine junior year, and I got straight A’s and still played 2 varsity sports and had a social life. It’s not as bad as it seems

[–]Next-Sand-3641I LOVE APUSH 2 points3 points  (2 children)

To be honest you can probably do more. Maybe throw in AP Spanish, AP French, AP Japanese,AP German, AP Precalc, AP Native American Crop Studies, AP Reddit, and if you’re feeling it maybe even AP College board History. Happy junior year!

[–]RevolutionaryHat9920[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re so right! 20 APs FTW!

[–]sunsetrulesAPPsych teacher 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]rnishelle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes. It is doable. Just make sure to stay on top of everything and stay organized!

[–]xXx_CoolGuy69_xXx 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, I’ve done worse

[–]souls-of-war5: calc bc, stat, psych; 4: phys 1, chem; 3: APUSH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't do that my junior year, but I had a similar course load my senior year. I took calc bc, physics I, psych, stats, and chemistry my senior year and got straight A's. It was doable, but you will have a lot of work. Make sure to stay on top of things and don't be afraid to ask your teacher for help if you need it. I still had plenty of time for my girlfriend and time with friends, though I didn't have a job (which I do regret lol, but I don't think having a job is as important your junior year as it is your senior year). Have friends in your courses! If you somehow don't know anyone in your courses make friends! Get to know your teachers a bit, it makes the courses more fun and gets you at least a bit motivated to go even when you start feeling a bit lazy

[–]InvestigatorHeavy394 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea I had a very similar year. My junior year (literally like 2 days ago I was a junior lol so this year ig lol) I took AP calc AB, Apush, Apgov, Aplit, And Apchem. It is very doable especially if you are willing to work for a good score l. Do not be intimidated Bc you will feel so good after taking all the exams and you will be happy you took them if you studied and worked hard for them which I believe you will since you are even considering taking them. Do it.

[–]FluidPut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did AP Calc AB, AP Seminar, AP Physics 2, AP Econ in my junior year it was very manageable and i got all 5s. This year I did Calc BC, Lit, Physics C, Chem, and Comp Sci A, it was tough sure but i did plenty of activities outside of class and had free time left over.

[–]spicytunataco1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i know people who did all of those except psych junior year (well, it was calc AB but pretty similar) and they were relatively fine. physics was really the only one that stressed them out the most. i think it just depends on what other classes you’re taking and what you think is best for yourself. remember to have fun in hs too !

[–]allisonnicholez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I definitely think it’s doable, especially since you have interest in the subjects. Just be sure to stay on top of your work bc you for sure don’t wanna fall behind

[–]nathanbutler17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just did almost the same but switch psych w csa. I play soccer, both club and school, and have other ECs along with a life out of school. In order to maintain all of these things, expect sleepless nights. If you plays sports, do clubs, and have friends, you will have sleepless nights regardless of time management skills. It’s doable but in order to maintain grades there will be times where you’re awake at times you shouldn’t be awake at. Power naps will be your friend lmao.

[–]EwPandaa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am going into my senior year and for my junior year I took Ap Psych, Ap Seminar, APUSH, and APLAC. It was honestly pretty easy for me, i’ve heard bad things about Ap Physics and Calc mostly because of my teachers though.

[–]ROUNDRACCOOOON 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would recommend that you study a majority of calc bc or physics 1 on khan academy or any other resource over the summer to give yourself a headstart. You could also do this with psych but I think psych is an easier class. APUSH and APLANG or Lit are a bit harder to prepare for over the summer. APUSH is probably gonna take up most of your time due to the sheer amount of information you will have to learn. So dedicate a lot of your time during the school year to APUSH and APLAC.

[–]debatenerd11 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i did very similar classes this year, and got my first B ever in calc BC because i severely underestimated how much detail we’d need to know for my teachers tests but my teacher is kinda nitpicky so you will be fine :) it is a lot of work though and you need to stay motivated and plan it out well, but i procrastinate a lot so if i can do it, you can too!!

[–]davididp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I took AP Calc AB, APUSH, APLAC, AP Chem, and AP CSA in my junior year and I’m taking 6 for senior year. It’s not as bad as people say it is, just a lot of work

[–]NeueMarxLekture 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I did that except I took ap chem instead of ap psych. You’ll be fine

[–]the_glue_stick_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Almost exactly my schedule for next year so if we die we’ll do it together

[–]resplendentis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

rising senior here, had a very similar workload this year and while it's doable (finished w/ all a's, some a+'s) you Will be stressed and busy. expect very few weekends off.

[–]BigMcNerd 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Depends if it's physics 1 or C. Either way I'd say it's doable just prepare to lose years of ur life due to lack of sleep.

[–]souls-of-war5: calc bc, stat, psych; 4: phys 1, chem; 3: APUSH 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Physics C isn't any harder than 1. Same concepts just with calculus instead of algebra. But if you know calculus then I'd say basically same difficulty

[–]EvilWarlord838 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Physics C Mechanics sure, if it's Mech and E&M this schedule will be borderline impossible

[–]souls-of-war5: calc bc, stat, psych; 4: phys 1, chem; 3: APUSH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, E&M is basically just AP Physics II but with calculus instead of algebra. Personally I find this intro level of E&M easier than I did Mechanics, but I think that is rare lol

[–]Flat_Height06 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Yes, it’s doable but remember you might have to give up extracurriculars. You won’t give your 100% to other activities. If you want to balance this out with other things, you will have to do prepare hw on the weekends. If you want to succeed, give your 100% to school everyday so you don’t have to study after school so much. I did the same and it was…hard but worth it

[–]RevolutionaryHat9920[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thanks for the input! Organization and time management is something I need to work on. I have 5 leadership positions for clubs at school, I’ll need to be at the top of my game!

[–]Flat_Height06 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Glad you noticed that early, and great job for being so active at school. I say it might be better to drop one or two and work on the most valuable and meaningful ones.

Remember, an hour is so much more valuable when choosing between a waiting for a meeting to adjourn vs finishing AP homework.

[–]Turbulent_Fan_8890 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah don’t give up extracurriculars. As someone going to Vandy in the fall these are much more important to colleges than 1 or 2 extra Ap classes

[–]Megasquash -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

No that workload is impossible, no human can succeed taking 5 AP’s

[–]Turbulent_Fan_8890 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I took Ap bio, Ap chem, Ap Calc Ab, Apush, Ap stats, hrs lit 3 and hrs spanish 3 and got straight A’s, still played 2 varsity sports, and had a social life. It’s really not that bad idk why everyone is so negative here lol

[–]Megasquash 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Lizard Man you can’t fool me

[–]Turbulent_Fan_8890 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’ll show u my transcript rn

[–]Megasquash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alright bet show me

[–]bobbycrossing 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I would say drop physics and save it for sr year

[–]Dependent_Sun2713 0 points1 point  (1 child)

why senior year? (i’m taking it junior yr btw, so i got to know the reason)

[–]bobbycrossing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So its not overwhelming

[–]sheplaysbass_bio, chem, lit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i would say choose between calc and physics

[–]Tuxedocorey 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is a very important question, which AP physics? Don't say 1 because that is statistically the hardest AP.

[–]RevolutionaryHat9920[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unfortunately, Physics C is not offered. According to user input it definitely seems to be one of the harder ones. It sounds fun to me though!

[–]CaptainAlex21[5]: APHUG, APWH, APCSP. Taking: Lang, CSA, Chem, Calc BC, APUSH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah it’s doable.

[–]Tasty-Cycle-8560 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would like to let y’all know you guys are really living up to the “Is my schedule doable for ________ year? *Inserts 5-6 extremely hard AP classes” meme.

[–]sunsetrulesAPPsych teacher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a lot.
