question about uc gpa

dnduswodnduswo 1298 replies314 threads Senior Member
is the average gpa on the uc's website the a-g gpa or the total high school gpa??
becuase my school requires lots of non academic class to graduate like driving education/health and two years of pe...which means i miss 3classes that i could take more science or other academic classes.

    A-G. Only academic classes are important.

    I believe the UC system uses their recalculated "weighted UC GPA" which excludes non-academic classes like p.e. and driver ed. So, the average GPA will be the "average UC GPA," not the average total GPA.

    There are so many different numbers floating around, it can be difficult to keep up. If any average GPA number exceeds 4.0, then it has to be a weighted calculation.

    An average high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.88 (note: UCI uses a maximum of 8 honors grade points in determining the GPA)
    from uci
    shouldnt it mean all high school gpa?

    I thought that the UC systems uses only A-G courses taken in grades 10 and 11 for the GPA calculation. They don't count 9th grade.

    I took two community college courses: Intro to Buisiness and Chem 050. Are they counted as weighted courses 1 semester each?

    I moved halfway through 10th grade
    my school will accept the classes for my overall HS GPA(stripped of it's weighting of course)

    Will UC GPA count the classes (by the way, they are not on the UC approved classes website, like Pre-IB 1 Chemistry compared to Chemistry)

    for credit fufillment?
    for GPA calculation?
