Hello, I have a few questions to ask. What is the highest number on the GPA scale? I saw it only goes up to 4.0. Is it good to have a 4.0 GPA overall and in all of your classes?
If you have the prerequisites I say go for it, if I had known everything I know now, in my senior year of highscool, there is no way that I think I would have passed up an oppurtunity to start learning Calculus in eighth grade.As in not suitable for the age because my Math teacher told me I should try Calculus and gave me a book.
HOw could that be bad? I don't know what 8th grade is (as in how old you are) but if your teacher advised you to try calculus, and you want to, then go for it. Learning things like that early can only be beneficial.As in not suitable for the age because my Math teacher told me I should try Calculus and gave me a book.
Yea, good point, however, since I've now written my post, I suppose I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt that he may just be seeking advice. And anyway, given that I'm from England, I don't really know enough about a GPA to be impressed!This is clearly a show off...
This is why I told him above to go for it if he has the prerequisites, if he doesn't then he probably won't get much out of it and it doesn't really matter yet for him anyway if he's only in the eighth grade.The guy asked if it was bade to be offered to take calculus. Never said a thing about if it's bad to take it. Anyway, for the latter, what does he know? Algebra? Trig?
Unless you went to my HS, which offers NO AP classes at all and no weighting.haha. yes. Maximum possible GPA? :rofl:
when you get into high school you can go beyond a 4.0 if you take AP classes, where a b will get the points of an a, a C of a B, and so on. F is still a zero though,:tongue2:
Subject to your own advice, I guess you're only slightly well rounded.No, you should get a few Bs and Cs. Colleges think you're more well rounded that way.
BTW, this is obviously a joke. If you're getting straight As keep it up. I usually never get straight As....there's always an A- or something in there somewhere.
