Chancing calculator: Magnet/Academy classes

Quick question: How are Magnet/Academy classes supposed to be entered in the chancing calculator that are beyond regular High School level ?

Meaning our Academy classes are clearly post AP level and identified on the transcript as college level. Example: Multivariable, Differential Equations, Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, etc.

Thank you

Right now we don't have a way to account for these types of classes, at least directly. While definitely not a perfect workaround I would bump up your GPA a bit - don't do anything too crazy or your chances could get really inflated. Then you should count each of those classes you mentioned as AP classes. Set the total number of APs available to you as equal to the number you have taken.

Let me know if you have questions!
