    so for some schools that im applying to their prereqs require some course+lab like biology I and II and then biology lab but only thing is that my transcript just shows my 4 hour biology course grade w/o the lab even though i took the lab. does anybody know how they look at this?

    In Texas for public schools, they all go by a common numbering system except Texas A&M. They kind of go their own route. If you took the Bio I & II for science majors they will recognize it just by the number of hours each class was. Normal bio courses are 3 hours without the lab attached.

    You're good. My school does the same thing. If you are applying to PharmCAS, you select if the course is a combined class or separate for lab and lecture. For the non-PharmCAS school they had us provide a link for where the academic catalog could be found. Whatever the school does, they will evaluate your transcript.

    Now this part just confused me. I was talking about classes where the lab and lecture are combined.

    The lab and lecture are combined, but you get a separate grade for each. The lab adds into the overall grade kind of like another test grade.
