Proposed GPA Standards Change

Extra credit points may not be eliminated from advanced placement courses in Texas high schools.

This week Texas Legislators agreed to vote on a proposal that will allow students to earn an extra half point towards AP courses.

Lawmakers say removing extra credit for challenging prerequisite courses would discourage students from taking them.

The proposals are efforts to create a GPA standard across high schools to help colleges and universities better compare students during the admissions process.
