hcoach Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 This is a question I've been trying to get an answer to for a while, and the people who are supposed to answer it don't seem to understand what I'm asking. I get that courses for the last 2 years of the undergrad program are what count towards the GPA calculation, or whatever the equivalent # of credits it takes to count for two years of study. So let's say the credit equivalent is 60 credits (I go to a uni where each course is worth either 3 or 6 credits, instead of the standard 1 and 0.5 credits, this is very important for the question I'm about to ask). Now these courses obviously span multiple academic sessions - fall/winter and summer sessions. Let's say for my very last session, a fall/winter session, I took 18 credits, so all of those are taken in the calculation. The session before that, a summer session, I took 24 credits, so all of those are taken, making for a total of 42 credits so far. We need 18 more from a previous session to get the 60 credits we need. But let's say in that previous session I took 24 credits, leaving 6 extra credits more than we need. What I want to know is; which courses would be used from those last 24 credits? Do they take the courses with the highest marks, lowest marks, major-relevant courses, random? I've tried to ask this question multiple times but the answer I keep getting is whatever the last 60 credits are will be used. Obviously there is no order set for the courses, as they are ordered according to which session they were taken in. So I'm having trouble understanding what the process is, and if anyone can she some light I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
