Question: I am a freshman in high school. My GPA is very low, as in 2.53 unweighted, and 3.16 weighted. I have had C's and D's in my honors courses of Biology, English, and Global Studies (my school history course). How would college admissions officers receive that? Would it be bad? Also, I have another concern about sophomore and beyond classes and scheduling for the future?
My guidance counselor suggests that I take all College Prep classes. But, my concern is that I will not be able to get out of them. If I am not, would it be better to risk another year of Honors courses, or to be stuck in College Prep classes for the rest of high school? Is it worth the risk to increase college admissions?
