Hey, @jayay!

I think it is very possible to do this. Colleges also recalculate your GPA based on the intensity of your courses, your high school's ranking in terms of course intensity, etc., and according to their own systems, so don't worry if you have an 80 or a bit lower in an Honors/AP class, the college will likely count the credit to the same extent as a weighted GPA does.

Good luck and I hope this helped!
