Do you use your 9-12 or 10-12 GPA?

<p>I'm trying to fill out my information on the common app, but I don't know which GPA I'm supposed to use. At our school, we're given both our 9-12 GPA and our 10-12 GPA. Because we're not allowed to take AP classes until our sophomore year, my 9th grade GPA significantly lowers my overall GPA. In other words, my 10-12 GPA reflects more favorably on my performance. </p>

<p>Which one am I supposed to use in my application?</p>

<p>9-12, it's an application from your whole high school career and everyones freshman year usually brings them down a ton, I know mine did</p>

<p>^can we just put academic GPA and take out all the electives/phys ed/?
Or will colleges do that?</p>

<p>Some (most?) colleges don't even look at what you report for GPA because they get your transcript and see for themselves.</p>

<p>All colleges will do whatever recalculating off of your transcript, the self reported gpa and sat really don't matter I'm pretty sure it's more of a statistical/ integrity check thing.</p>
