The classes are much different than in high school and doing well requires managing your time well and adopting good study techniques. Early on in the pre-med curriculum general biology and chemistry along with organic chemistry tend to be the weed out courses and doing well requires preparation. So to answer your question the classes are doable when one can allocate the time required to study thoroughly and manage their time well.

Hi Jeff! So the premed classes are definitely different than traditional high school classes. In college whatever course you may be taking is going to be different than what you are use to in high school. It requires more time dedication and discipline. AP courses definitely give a good introduction to some of the premed courses you are facing. You can always try them out as a high school student to get a glimpse of what you may face in college. Don't be afraid though, they aren't as bad as one may think, you actually get to meet very nice and helpful professors, along with a good group of friends who are on the same path as you. In addition you complete some pretty amazing lab assignments but the point is to stay focused and work hard. For example, attend lectures, take notes/record lectures, read from the textbook, solve problems especially for chemistry classes and get to know your professors. If you really stay dedicated and focused by working hard it will be easier, and try to surround yourself with positive classmates. Sometimes some students would speak ill of the class or professor because it wasn't their interest or they weren't doing well by devoting enough time.

Best of luck!

Hey Jeff,

They aren't easy, but some aren't as bad as people say. Many times they're "bad" because the student wasn't prepared. Not because the content was incredibly difficult.

Thanks,
Blake

Nothing is difficult. It is when YOU allow something to be difficult, it definitely will be difficult.
Yes! The type of study at the pre medical level is quite different from other disciplines. A bit demanding I must sincerely say and I guess this is why people tag it as 'difficult'.
Your ability to recall and understand your target and where you are heading to should be a driving force.

Chemistry and microbiology were tough! Try to get in a few business courses too... marketing and accounting.

You need to take a decision upon whether you want to retain the work difficult in your notebook. The word difficult is only relative to something else, which might be considered easy. If you remove the word "easy" from your vocabulary, difficult is sure to follow suit.
