What is a CP chemistry class?

I am taking chemistry and revelry learned it is co- college prep. Does a good grade in the class make it look better on transcript? Or does a bad grade slide more Bc it’s harder? Thx!

Hi there! Typically, college prep (CP) signifies that the class is not honors or AP/IB level, which are considered more challenging classes. Therefore, selective colleges may hold your performance to a higher standard for CP than they would for honors or AP/IB. In your situation, I'm not 100% sure what you mean when you say co-college prep; are you taking a course at your local community college/doing dual enrollment? If so, this is a great way to show you're challenging yourself in classes!

Of course, no matter the level of your coursework, you should be striving to do your best, and if you feel that you are ready for added rigor, see what your school offers in terms of higher level classes to make sure you're challenging yourself. Wishing you the best of luck!
