    This is what my junior year at Moorestown High School's lookin' like:

    AP European History
    AP Latin IV
    Honors Environmental Sciences (used to be AP..)
    Honors English III
    Honors Economics
    Honors Debate II
    Algebra II
    Career Planning (i hate required crap :mad: )

    won't know the order for a long time....... just a list of what im taking.

    I wouldnt kill the Career Planning to much. Chances are it going to suck but you may found out that there are jobs out there that go for the things you really enjoy that you didnt know about.

    Right now I wish I had something like that in my past instead of taking 2 major changes to find out what I really wanted to do. (as for the major changes it went Archtechure, Civil Engineering, and now constuction techology). Mind you the jum from Arch to CE was really quickly and I changed it after talking with the Arch department knowing that was not what I wanted. It was CE then. Talk with a prof there and he suggested I look at Ctech but I was set on being an engineer like my father. Well 2.5 years later I relieze that there are things in CE that I just have a lot of trouble doing and just dont enjoy. Change over to Ctech losing a semster of classes. pretty minor lose considering the major change but it doing what I really want to do and that is to be superindent at job sites (that one is a pretty recent one but it was because didnt know truelly what they did until I talk with a company and from talking with me they told me that is what I would really enjoy and where I wanted to be. Told me more about it and i have to agree with them).

    In hind sight I may of not even gone in to consuction field. I might of gone something in the IT area or mechical area. I figure out shortly after starting CE that if I had it to do over I would of gone more in the Mechical side of things but I was to far invested in what I am doing now and i do enjoy it. Still I enjoy it and I am looking forward to doing the stuff for a living.

    My advice to you is see what out there and you may find out that you really will find something you never thought of.

    I remember that during the IB I took...
    1. English A1 Standard
    2. Spanish A2 Standard
    3. Theory of Knlowledge
    4. Psychology Higher
    5. Computer Science Higher
    6. Physics Higher
    7. Math Methods.

    Now in my Sophomore year at college, im pretty much just learning new things as the IB program is so good that they teach you pretty much through the first year and a half of college. Atleast for me. New courses next semester (Junior) is going to look like,

    1. Scientific and Technical Communications
    2. Electric and Electronic Circuits
    3. Fluid Mechanics
    4. Fluid Mechanics Lab
    5. Mechanics of Materials
    6. Complex Variable

    Wow, my sophomore courses are going to be pretty basic:

    AP US History
    Honors English 10 (AP not offered in 2006-2007)
    Honors Biology 10 (AP not offered in 2006-2007)
    Academic Algebra II
    Public Speaking
    Economics and Personal Finance
    Chorus (.67 credits for mumbling! Yessss!!)
    Driver's Ed
    Family Consumer Science
    German III

    In addition to being in one of those one-to-one districts, our high school has one of the strictest graduation requirements in the state. You have to remain in school until everyone in your class graduates, even if you have more than the 24 credits needed to earn your diploma. Our valedictorians routinely head off to college with 35 high school credits under their belts.

    Well, I've only got half a year to go and our year runs from late-Feb till early-Nov but here they are for autumn session 2006:

    Chem 364 - Molecular Structure and Spectroscopy (Quantum Chemistry...ergh...) 8 credit points
    Pol 111 - Australian Politics (cause why the hell not?) 6 credit ponts
    Mark 101 - Introduction to marketing. 6 credit points

    I only need to pass the chem subject but I enrolled in the other two so I can keep my independent youth allowance from Little Johnny. You need to be a full time student (18cp I think) to keep your YA and considering mine's paying my rent I thought it would be a good idea.

    I have uni 3 days a week, only 12 hours so that's pretty easy but the subjects are pretty tough with respect to the readings required and Chem is really tough, it's my 3rd go at this subject. I have the 144 credit points needed to graduate but I need the 8 chem credit points to graduate with a chem major (no major, no graduation). Oh how I hope this is the year, so sick of Uni right now. It has been good however as my enrollment back in 2001 was just a blank sheet of paper with a signature at the bottom and I had to figure out all the subjects I wanted to do. By taking so bloody long to pass 3rd year chem and graduate I've been able to fill in time with some good electives like Law and Contract Law, Geography, Literature and Art in Rennaissance Europe, Human Relaions Management, all sorts of things. Good fun but too damned long.

    That's crazy. I'd never get out of high school!

    Because of the other people, mind you...

    Here's my list:
    • AP Calculus
    • AP Government/Economics
    • AP Music Theory
    • British Literature Honors (if the class doesn't go through, I'll default to AP English Literature)
    • Chamber Orchestra
    • Geology at my local Community College ('cause I've already taken Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, and our AP Environmental Science class is a joke)
    • Spanish 7/8

    This past year I took 4 AP's (Physics B, Psychology, English Language, and U.S. History) and I've had a rough time keeping a 4.0. I'll definitely be looking forward to next year!

    Well in my last year of HS, my subjects were:
    Maths Methods (advanced)
    History (Revolutions)

    This year, I've just started Uni doing a double degree in Media and Communications/Commerce. I have four subjects per semester, 2 commerce, 2 Media totaling about 12 contact hours a week ( :D :p ). My subjects for the year are:
    Introduction to Media and Communications
    Media, Politics and Society
    Professional Writing
    Global Politics
    Introductory Microeconomics
    Introductory Macroeconomics
    Quantitative Methods (statistics) = YUK
    Accounting Reports = also YUK

    I think I'll change accounting to marketing or something more interesting like that. I'd do the same for QM except it's compulsory.

    Yeah it's like i know what i want to do and that's that, but the class is absolutely dreadful, and the teacher is very feh. Thanks for the advice though :)

    That's a shame, it seems like a really neat class. Good luck with talking to your dean. Well look on the bright side, it's AP so you can take it in college if you choose to do so ;) . What AP history classes does your current school offer, any other than U.S.?

    What's engineering Physics, is that considered an actual class under your science program like Physics or what? It's rather neat how classes vary so much within schools, there have been quite a few courses both not offered nor that i have heard of already:)

    I haven't even begun to think about next year yet...we don't register for classes til late March or early April. Here's my workload now:
    - Humanities 202 (required, 3 credits)
    - Operating Systems (3 credits)
    - Observational Astronomy (3 credits)
    - Mass Media (3 credits)
    - Sports Editor/Assistant Editor credit from newspaper (3 credits)

    And in the fall I had:
    - Humanities 201 (required, 3 credits)
    - Earth Environments (4 credits)
    - Publication Practicum (1 credit)
    - Career & Self Awareness (1 credit)
    - Introduction to Computing (3 credits)
    - Structure & Logic (3 credits)
    - Fencing (1 credit)

    I was originally majoring in Computers but because my college uses all Windows PC's, I decided to switch my major into a contractual one between journalism, graphic design, and communications.

    These are the two that interest me. What is Art 3 Magnet - Honors? What level of Physics is the other class, and is it more focused towards mechanical physics (hence robotics)?

    Yeah my school doesn't have any AP history electives either, and we don't have AP gov/econ, we just have Honors economics for the finances and stuff (which im taking this year, taught by my current AP US teacher :D ) and then Honors National Gov't is like a semester course because my school makes you take 1.5 years of US history. So most people take that in conjunction with the Honors Contemporary History (1920-present).

    World History is just offered as the Freshman history, all on level which is rather silly in opinion. I do agree with your counselor, funding or staffing is probably the issue from having an AP Euro course.:(

    EDIT: Actually i just realized my High School does offer a history elective, AP World Art.. but most people just take that because it "looks good" on your transcript, not that they have any interest in the subject whatsoever.
