Hi I will be an undergraduate freshman at UCSD this fall. I'm exempted from one year of general chemistry due to AP credit. However, I would still like to retake the Chem 6 series for general chemistry. Unfortunately, UCSD will not give me any units or GPA points if I retake the chem class because their policy states that you can't retake a class for credit if you already have credit for that class. The class will still show up on my transcript, and I will get a grade, but I wont get UC credit. I read online that the AMCAS GPA includes all courses you took, regardless of whether you got credit at your school. However, when I called in today to ask, the woman that helped me said that retaking the chem class for no credit would not meet medical schools prereqs, and the grade I get from the class will not be included in my AMCAS GPA. I read various other threads that said retaking classes that you were exempted from due to AP Credit would still meet medical and pharmacy school prereqs and your grade would be included in the AMCAS GPA. Now, I'm quite confused about this contradiction. Can anyone clarify this for me/ does anyone have past experience? I would ask my schools prehealth advisor, but I'll be signing up for classes before I arrive on campus. Thank you in advance.
