How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Taking challenging math and science classes (AP classes) would be a good idea. Such as Physics, Chemistry, Human Anatomy, Calculus, biology etc. If your school doesn't offer them, or if you want to learn more, edX and Coursera have tons of free courses on a range of topics.

For the courses, I would recommend a strong science program with a AP Level courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus. If your school offers any medical classes such as Medical Terminology or Medical Anatomy and Physiology, do them. And if your school offers it, do AP Research. You should also try to do Bio and Chemistry Subject tests and Math Level 2 subject test. If your school doesn’t offer it, you should definitely check your local community college and see if you can take some courses in biology or any other science related subject.
Hope this helps
