At my school, they give an extra GPA bonus to those in AP or Honors classes. A=4.5, B=3.4, C=3.2. Does this seem fair that honors classes, a year behind Advanced Placement, get the same boost in GPA? It may be just me, but the workload, and the level of diffuculty in AP just doesn't compare to Honors classes. Also, I have heard of other schools giving a whole point extra (A=5.0) for AP classes. Why do schools do this when they know universities will recalculate the GPAs?
