    So my science gpa was pretty good before last year.

    Took ochem attachFull194551

    science gpa before was ~3.55

    took ochem: grades:
    Ochem 118A: NP
    Ochem 118A: C
    Ochem 118B: C+
    Ochem 118C: C+

    My school doesnt let us retake classes we have already passed
    I currently attend UC Davis, and it has two ochem series (118 series and 8 series). I took 118b and got a C+. My university does not allow you to retake the same exact course you already passed. If I take ochem 8b and get an A, would that A replace my grade in 118b?

    Description for courses:
    8b: Organic Chemistry-Brief (4 Units)
    Laboratory concerned primarily with organic laboratory techniques and the chemistry of the common classes of organic compounds. Continuation of course 8A.

    118b: Organic Chem Health Sci (4 units)
    Continuation of course 118A, with emphasis on spectroscopy and the preparation and reactions of aromatic hydrocarbons, organometallic compounds, aldehydes and ketones.

    Thank you for your time

    You can retake your Orgo at any college, not just UCD. But your sGPA is fine as is.

    If Goro says your sGPA is fine, it should be fine for most/all DO schools.

    What does NP mean?

    I wish my sgpa was still above 3.5
    I believe its now around 3.3 due to ochem
    I'm going to be a senior this upcoming year and will be taking a gap year so its also a downward trend :(
    I finished all science prereqs

    Thanks Goro!
