Most amount of classes you have ever taken at once?

I know most of you are bums and dont have jobs or go to school but I was wondering, what is the most amount of classes you have ever taken in your life in a single semester?

reason i ask is cause i usually take 4 classes a semester because 12 credits is considered full time. 4 classes x 3 credits = 12 credits. but im considering taking this extra certificate course that will have me doing an extra three classes next semester. so 7 classes in total and idk if im going to be able to do that and also maintain my work schedule of 30 hours a week. any experience doing that kind of shit?

In 2nd year at university, owing to a scheduling mishap in 1st year(I didn't turn up for any lectures after week 6, because it got boring, so missed all the class tests), I got no credit for one of my classes, so to make it up, I had to take 160 credits worth of modules in 2nd year, instead of 120.

EDIT: FWIW, that was made up of 13 10 credit modules, and 1 30 credit module.

im america 120 credits is equal to a bachelor's degree, so 4 years worth of classes. idk how much 120 or 160 credits is to you but that equates to 4-6 years of school brah and I know you didnt do that

120 credits in that system represents a year's full-time study.

when did you sleep? were you hooked on a feeding tube? where are your friends?

EDIT: just realized you said a year. I was asking what the most amount you've done in a single semester (3-4 months period)

yes almost exactly. 6 classes in school plus a research project plus night classes for a diploma course plus 30 hr work week.

It wasn't too bad because I made sure I had time to have fun too but I had 2-3 all nighters every week.

15 credits a semester was fine when they were all 1st year courses. Would not recommend exceeding that in upper year courses.

Well, the 160 credits were made up from 13 10 credit classes(IIRC I did 6 in the Martinmas term(so, autumn/winter) and 7 in Candlemas(winter/spring), but the don't use those term names any more), and the 30 credit class lasted through both of them.

It added up to about 15 hours of lectures a week, and about the same amount of lab time.

I guess it depends on what your goals are. If you just want to put in the bare minimum and scrape by I'm sure you could do more.

12 credits was considered full time, but that was considered light, 15 was considered standard. I typically did 15, but did 17 once.

I knew many people who did 20+ and no thanks. With 15 credits a semester I finished a bachelors of 120 credits in 5 semesters thanks to a ton of subsidized pre requisites I did in highschool, so transferring into college at 18 I never had to do general education or anything outside of my majors.


If any high shoolers are reading this, and your state offers options like that, do them. You will save tons of cash, time, and pointless 101 classes with 500 people sitting in them learning about shit you could have scanned Wikipedia for.

In my first year (civil engineering), I had 6 modules per semester which were 10 credits each, so I had 120 credits in one year

Physiological Systems
Proteins: Structure & Function*
Nucleic Acids: Structure and Function*
Microorganisms*
Molecular Genetics
Infection & Immunity
Energy Metabolism*
Drugs & Disease*
Human Tissue In Health And Disease*
Applied Microbiology*

If it's got a *, it had a 3 hour lab every week.

The most I ever took was 18 credit hours. I did it my junior year. If you take 12 hours every semester, you'll never graduate in four years. Most people do 15 per semester.
