How do Honor classes transfer to a school with no Honor classes?
Moving to a new school, this school only has GT, Pre-AP, and Dual Credit as technical "Higher advanced classes". These higher advanced classes give you a couple extra points added to your GPA compared to the regular classes; you have to have a 100% in the regular class to have a 4.0 while the Higher advance classes you need a 90% or above to get a 4.0.
The school that I came from did this thing where the GT students and the Honor students were put in the same class (because they were together, it was called the honors class and not the GT class). The Honors kids had to maintain a 3.6 GPA, receive a teacher recommendation, and have a good score for the state's standardized test. The GT students had to apply and take a GT test to be put in the class (this was the way to get into the class if a teacher did not recommend you or did not maintain the 3.6 GPA).
My only problem is since I was in the Honor program, I never took the GT test. Do you think my new school would take me as an accelerated course even though I didn't take the GT test? The registrar said they couldn't take it because I never took the GT test and the transcript just showed that it was an honor class (because of what I mentioned above), but if I show that Honor students and GT students were put under the same curriculum will they waiver it?
Thank you :)
