Pre caculus vs. Statistics

Hello. I am wondering what math class to take next year as a high school student.
Now I have always had difficulty in math. In algrebra 3-4 this year I only got a C, and I get A's in all my other classes. I look at math as an AP, even though it's not (at least not yet for me), because I spend by far my most time at home studying math. I will constantly spend multiple hours studying for a math test over a long period of time and still fail it.
Now I know AP Stats would be hard. But I feel like seeing how it's a combination of English and Math maybe Ill be better? I feel like I don't get anything out of math right now, like I never grasp the concepts. I take any other test and I can logically think things through to answer it, in math I just really struggle and freeze up on tests, alot of the times I'll do wonderfully with my tutor and then do badly on the test. Any help would be appreciated
ps I plan on talking to the schools stats teacher, my current math teacher and counselor before making my decision. But I was wonderng your opinions too

Re: Pre caculus vs. Statistics

Pre calc prepares you for a much wider range than pre stat.
