Notice Description: 

If you want to receive “a-g” credit, please note that hands-on wet labs are required. Make sure that your school can provide the equipment and supervision necessary. An alternate method of satisfying “a-g” requirements appears on the UC Admissions page, and requires a “Score of 3, 4 or 5 on any two AP Exams in Biology, Chemistry, Physics (B, C, 1 or 2) and Environmental Science; score of 5, 6 or 7 on any two IB HL exams in Biology, Chemistry or Physics.” OUT-OF-STATE SCHOOLS: Schools not interested in “a-g” credit are welcome to use the online portion of the course without providing wet labs but should know that wet labs constitute 20-25% of the full course.
