Science GPA help please

  1. 0
    Im trying to figure out my science GPA and had a couple of questions if someone can help me.
    1. What classes are used for your science GPA? I know A&P 1 and 2, chemistry and microbiology but what about intro to chemistry or a biology class that was a nutritional and health class but was coded a biology class? other than the typical classes needed for your bachelors what other undergrad classes are considered the science GPA?
    2. If you for example take general chemistry at college A and retake it at college B and get a better grade, even though they are two different institutions will they let the grade still replace the other?
    3. Is statistics or any of the math classes added into the science GPA?
    4. Also for calculating BSN GPA is that just the classes you take after your associates if you did a RN to BSN transition? I see people post an overall GPA, science GPA, then a BSN GPA. What is included in the BSN GPA?
    Thats all i can thank of for now, thanks for your help.

    I would call your potential school and ask them the specifics. My school wanted the overall GPA. As far as I know your science GPA would be all your science classes combined. Your grade would not be replaced: I earnd a C in chemistry and retooks it and earned an A several years later --> that ended up equating to a B as far as my GPA was concerned. Math should be separate but I would ask first.

    I would definitely contact the specific school you are applying for, as there is not a standard answer for this. The science classes included vary. My school included all science courses taken. No math or statistics included. GPAs in question were Science, Cumulative, and last 60 units.

    Was it Loma Linda that only counted GPA for last 60 Units?
