I'm in remedial classes? - January 5th 2011, 10:35 AM

I'm in High School and I consider myself the average joe. In all my major classes, I'm in all remedial (100) classes. Will this affect me if I want to go to Community/University colleges?

I feel like sometimes I'm in the wrong type of classes, but I feel really stupid for being in them since everyone says remedial classes are bad and for stupid people. I'm one of those people that used to procrastinate a lot, but I started getting more motivated right around 10th grade. I'm currently in 11th grade. In 9th grade, I didn't care for anything and had a lot of C's and D's. Now, I have 5 A's and 2 B's. I'm doing a lot better as an upperclassmen than I ever have.

I would speak with your school counselor about your options. Community colleges are more accepting, and are a great option that you should explore.

Community colleges are easier to get into but you may be able to get into universities or colleges. Depending in the country you live in, the university looks at your overall grade throughout high-school as a percent or CGPA. They do put more emphasis on the marks from grade 12 and less so from grade 11. Your best option would be to contact the universities themselves but lots of the information is posted online for each university, just google the university and look under "prospective students" or under admissions. Sometimes they give it a different name but those 2 are the most common ones.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

It might affect you- depends on where you want to go and what their standards are. Keep doing your best though.

It could possibly affect you as other people said, but if you're getting good grades now it shows that you are making a effort. In order to get into a good university I strongly suggest taking extracurricular activities, however these don't have to be at school.
