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.
So as for AP and IB and other rigorous courses everything is in context. If my school offers no Honors IB or AP courses and I take as many classes as possible I’d wouldn’t be docked for lack of AP becuase it’s available. So don’t worry about it.
As for your GPA assuming you’re school even grades you what ever scale they are using will translate to a GPA likely. You can likely google/look up insert scale to gpa translate.
Rule of thumb is 90%+ is an A. 80%+ is a B. 70%+ is a C. 60%+ is a D. 60% and below is an F.
It varies by school but this is a basic version.
Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
