Ive taken 5 AP classes my junior year (Biology, Psychology, French, English Literature, and US History) and am taking another 5 this year (Physics, Calculus, Chemistry, English Language and European History) and I would say it really depends on a few factors: 1) how naturally good you are at your subjects 2) how much time you are willing to put in and work hard and 3) the level of difficulty at your school. Like for me, I was really into my bio, psych and us history classes so I went through the homework quicker and easier than most of my classmates. Also, I spent whatever time I needed to make my assignments satisfactory to me. My homework assignments were generally okay, but like for my biology class he gave a ton of work.but to give you an idea, I probably usually spent like atleast 4-5 hours doing homework on the average night I think, some nights I had so much to do or I just sucked at that class so it took me a while to go through the work. Occasionally, I had little homework and maybe had nothing to do so like an hour or 2..like I said, it really depends on alot of things - I was a really dedicated student but there were alot of kids I knew who just half did their work and obviously suffered on their AP Exams unlike me =)
In one year?!!! Lighten your workload. There's absolutely no need for that kind of torture. Colleges don't care that much! 3 tops. For your sake.
It depends on time, try and divide them each into how many hours you have for the 5 ap classes.
My brother is going to be a senior this year and is also taking five AP classes. He took three last year and was up late into the night to finish all his homework. i wouldn't drop any of the classes as colleges like someone who works hard and doesn't give up because there is a lot of work. I expect you will be up pretty late to finish, but I think it will be worth it if you're taking classes that you have interest in.
