Hi

The first time I took Organic Chemistry in 2010 I received a grade of NC.
During this time, my advisor told me that AMCAS will count the grade as an F.

I took time off from being pre-med and re-took the class and got an A.

Would you happen to know whether AMCAS counts NC as an F?
I found two answers online, one when NC = F and one where NC is considered as a failed course and does not affect GPA (it's included in the "supplementary hours" section).

What has been your experience if you did a No credit?

Did you first take the class as P/F? Or did you first take it for a letter grade and later repeat?

If you took it as a P/NC, then it would NOT count as an F
If you took for a letter grade, failed, got an NC, and then retook it, then it would count as an F and must be listed as a repeat. See page 43 under Pass/Fail and Repeat.
