    Default Should I take Biology and Chemistry at the same time?


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    This semester I'm taking both General Biology and General Chemistry. And I'm also doing an interest group and Elementary Latin I. Should I be taking both Bio and Chem at the same time? I've heard both are extremely hard and I'm worried whether I should take on this semester and the other the next. Thanks.

    I wouldn't be concerned about it if you like science. Last year, I had my uber-science schedule, which at times contained two science classes. My second quarter had both Marine Biology and AP Chemistry, my third quarter both Environmental Issues and Environmental Chemistry, and my fourth quarter had AP Chemistry plus psychology (which at times had a lot of neurobiology). I was able to handle that, plus another science class in my first quarter, pretty well. But I like science a lot, too. If science is your thing, go for it. If it isn't, perhaps don't. Also, if this is for college, I'd advise against having two lab classes at one time--it's a lot of work from what I hear.

    Like hehe, I love science, and that is the reason why I took AP Bio, Physics, and Psychology in my Junior Year of HS. In senior year... There were no more science classes to take (took them all )

    Since this is for college, I am going to assume that your classes are Bio 101 and Chem 101. For me, that wouldn't be enough. Actually, for my freshman year in college, I'm taking Bio 200, Chem 101, Chem 105 (might drop this though), Math 121, and a seminar that is named Medical Issues -- basically, where we debate about ethics and such in the medical and scientific fields. Yes. I am a nerd

    It all boils down to if you can handle the workload, and if you like/love science. So it's up to you.

    I took Bio and Chem (at an IB level) with little difficulty; it's not bad.

    Bio was easy freshman year but chemistry was tough if you didnt pay attention or fell behind.

    It's good that you'd choose biology and chemistry. They compliment one another extremely well and some of the stuff even overlaps. If you do both, the exams will be similar and easier to do and if there's coursework it'll probably have a similar layout too. If you're looking to go into medicine then it's probably essential that you do both.

    More so though, lessons are only as hard as you find them. Lots of people complain about maths but I'm planning on doing further maths next year along with biology and chemistry. I find maths pretty easy. If you're good at the sciences then you shouldn't find it too difficult.

    I dont think it should be a major problem.
    When i was at school, we did a combined course of biology, human biology, chemistry and physics all in one.
    If you enjoy science, which it sounds like you do, than you should be hard. But it is a tough subject. I took biology onto a higher level and found it deadly on its own. But each person is to their own.

    Yeah you got the same kind of problem as me.

    I am thinking of taking Physics and Chem. I think i should be ok and need Phys for my Uni Course. If it is too much, see if the school will let you change to an easy subject for year 12.
