so it's a points system? that's interesting...we have honors classes as well. in my state you get 7 points added to your final grade (out of 100), but colleges take that off when considering applications anyway so it's pointless. but they do look at the difficulty of your schedule and honors classes prepare you better for the SAT which is a really important test that schools look at (unrelated to whether you pass/fail high school though)

then there's AP classes which are college course you can take in high school...you take a final as well as an AP exam which is out of 5. if you get a 4 or 5 most colleges will actually give you credit for that class so it's one less you have to take in college...even if you don't, as long as you pass it is good because they still like kids that take harder classes.

also they add half a point to your GPA which is out of 4 (a=4, b=3, etc)

very confusing

I saw the Slane dvd today for 15 bucks at Circuit City but didn't get it. I'm gonna try to look for an even better deal

^^^^^^
At our final exam you take a exam in every subject you do

It is usually 7 (6 for non-nationals) but I do 8

At honours level a A1 is worth a 100 points
And the lowest pass a D3 is worth 40 points

At ordinary level a A1 is worth 60 points
And a D3 is worth 5 points

Your highest 6 subjects are taken so max is 600 points

And you need so many points to get into a course in college (plus a pass in Irish, Maths, and a extra language)

The average for colleges in Dublin is in the 300's

To do Law or Medicane you need 550 +

that's cool irishteen...I think I would like a system like that because it takes into account how hard your schedule is.

for ex we have GPA's which are your Grade point average...A=4, B=3, C=2 etc...so no matter which course it is or how high or low of an B it is, you'll get a 3. the avg for the better schools can be as high as 3.7-3.8. But getting a B in an AP class is amazing, yet you only get a 3.5 (plus .5 for AP classes)

then there's the SATs which are now out of 2400...800 each for reading, writing (essay) and math. I actually don't mind that because I'm good at that type of test, I got in the 99th percentile of juniors on the practice one and i'm a freshman

anyway sorry to bore you but I want to go to college really bad, preferably out of state...but tuition is so expensive out of state so i must be nerdy and get a scholarship

be right back, ive gotta do the dishes....

I swear, everytime I come into this thread, the Slane DVD (or rather, Zootles lack of it) is being discussed
