How do different types of courses affect your GPA?

May 25, 2018 0 Comment

Advanced courses like Honors, AP, IB, etc., are more challenging than regular ones. Therefore, both schools and colleges assign them higher importance when calculating GPAs. For example, a B+ from an AP course is not equivalent to a B+ from a regular course. Most commonly, an Honors course will earn you an extra half grading point (0.5) on a 4.0 scale, and an AP course an extra whole point (1.0), when compared to a regular course.
