Dude, how do you get 24 credits? We only need 22.5 to graduate over here.

For my school, 22 for a "standard" diploma(minimum to graduate) and 24+ for an "advanced" diploma. Right now I'm on track for a 23 cred. I won't tell the story.

We need 200 credits to graduate over here.... Perhaps this is on a different scale.

I'll give you a schedule of my high school years. Marching band .5, Honors Lit. 1, Symphonic Band 1, Football .5, Spanish2 1, Biology 1, Honors Geo 1, Honors World History 1, Swimming .5, Jazz Band .5 : that totals to 8 credits mulitiplied by 3 equals 24 8)

we get .5 for marching band also. Why did you multiply your credits times 3?

You only get one credit for your honors classes? I'm really confused.


How do you figure out how many credits you get?

Heres the deal with my school, and most schools In MD, although Im Private. Classes are either 1 or .5 credits, never more, with people ussually taking 6-7 credits a year, which gives you 24-28 credits when its all done. However In AP classes you can get a number of collage credits depending On how the collage see's fit.

All the classes at my school are either 1 or .5 credits, but the grades are weighted depending on the difficulty of the class. Im going to take about 8 credits per year, so by the end of my junior year i'll have enough credits to graduate. 8 credits X 3years (9,10,11gr) = 24 credits.
