I am currently in the eighth grade, in a public school system in central Texas.
In the fall of 8th grade, I took the Algebra I Credit-by-Exam (two weeks into the course) and skipped the class, going on to Pre-AP Geometry.
In early Spring this year, I took the Algebra II Credit-by-Exam (while taking Geometry), thus skipping Algebra II and now I'm guaranteed for Pre-AP Pre-Calculus in the 9th Grade (as long as I finish Geometry in the classroom).
If I take the Pre-Calculus Credit-by-Exam in the summer, and the counselors change my math course to AP Calculus (AB or BC) when I get my class schedule in the fall, will colleges look at my Credit-by-Exam scores (AND the other high-school classes I've taken in the classroom: French I, Health, and Geometry)?
Also, are these high-school classes I've taken in middle-school part of my transcript, GPA, whatever?
Finally, can someone please clarify what a GPA is and how it works?!
