Hello. I'm working on my UC application and right now I am in the section where I have to list the classes I have taken throughout high school. I've taken a class that is not on the list. It's a class where I helped students who were in math support. This is not in the a-g requirements so do I just exclude it or put it as an extracurricular? To give you more info the class is called "school community service." My school counts the class as volunteer and gives volunteer hours but I am not sure if this would count as an extracurricular since I took the class during school hours.
Another thing is that my school makes us take one semester of world history during 9th grade and 1 semester of health for the second semester. Since my school does semesters I have to put the grades I got during semester 1 and 2. However, since health is not an a-g requirement and I only took history for 1 semester, I put my grade for semester 1 and for semester 2 I put the option "NO." Did I do that right or should I change it?
