    I'm going to be entering my sophomore year at a top college preparatory school in my area. During my freshman year, I took a Chemistry Honors class that is usually taken by strong students in their junior year. However, I did not do so well. My final grade for the year was a C, and along with my C- in Geometry Honors brought my GPA to a 3.0 (I don't know if this was weighted or unweighted). Should I take Chemistry AP in my junior year to try to make up for my freshman year Chemistry Honors course and give me a stronger base in chemistry for admission to the U.S. Air Force Academy?

    It's not a bad idea. Chemistry is one of the harder freshman year courses at the academy. What would your alternative class be?

    Just wondering why you might have taken, as a high school freshman, a course intended for advanced high school juniors? Can you just retake this class as a junior?

    I took a placement test at the beginning of the school year, and I qualified for the course. I can take Chemistry AP as a junior.
