How do I get my GPA up ?
Answered

Howdy ladies and gentlemen, Im a high school senior in a bit of a mess. Thing is as of right now my GPA is a 2.4 (IB predicted of a 24/42) and I dont really know how I could increase it without going to community college.

I believe I have decent ECs though so Im really trying to figure out the GPA bit, so your help would mean a lot

Thanks

I think the only way is to either increase all the grades you can still get - if you are doing IB then you can work really hard on the IB exams - and if possible try to get AP classes / high level courses for IB as they weigh higher. Grades you already have cant really be changed - at least as far as I know - unless you have the option to retake a year. In my curriculum it is possible to retake year 11 to improve your grades but that is an international curriculum.

I hope you will find this a little bit helpfull. I am sorry I dont have a more effective option for you at this point in time.
