I want to become a neurologist when I grow up, but I know I should be taking harder classes. The problem for me is that I have anxiety and get too overwhelmed. I'm taking regular classes and currently have a 4.0 GPA, so I know Im capable of taking hard classes, but I'm afraid I won't do well or that Id get too stressed out. Next year, I'm taking anatomy, Honors chemistry, regular English , regular pre-calc, half year orchestra that only lasts half of the class period, honors ancient history (only for one quarter), modern history (only for one quarter), world at war elective (only for one quarter), online phyed (only for one quarter)(we'd meet once a week to log in our hours), and Spanish. There are a total of 16 slots open and the majority of theseOPu classes are two slots. However, I'm thinking about, either, take all honors, or drop a class so I can take STATS. And if I do, should I take honors?

Since you are still in high school definitely take the harder classes. It could help you get over your anxiety or at least find a way to manage it for the future (cuz college will be even harder). I don't know what college you want to go to to be a neurologist, but if you want to go to a good college, they would prefer a student with a 3.7 gpa and hard classes over a student with a 4.0 taking all easy classes. Also the harder classes will prepare you so much better.1
