Does P.E and electives count towards your GPA?

In my school you get the same amount of credits for an elective, as you would for English or Math. So when calculating my GPA, would Math and an elective be equal?

    In our school in NY, PE does not count towards GPA, but electives do. Colleges of course see what grades are for what courses, so I believe many of them recalculate.

    That may be partly why there is no definitive GPA guideline. A kid might see someone else's stats and think they have a higher or lower GPA, but it's impossible to know what goes into that GPA without all the info.

    The colleges have a lot more info in front of them, which is why we shouldn't second guess other people's chances or why colleges select who they do.

    I sure know that English does.
