I am a sophomore student who wants to break into IB next year and I attend a target school. Long story short, I retook two courses in the past summer in order to pull up my gpa, the first attempts were not that bad (got B- for both). During the summer, I got into a bad car accident that caused post accident trauma, so I gave up studying and completely bombed the courses. I just got a passing grade for both. Now if I use the new grades and suppose I have straight A+ this year, my GPA will be around 3.64, which is a bit low.. If I just use the old grades, my GPA will be around 3.73, which is merely considered to be competitive during OCR. Is it possible to calculate the GPA by just using the higher attempt? If not, am I screwed with 3.64 during OCR? (I have relevant internships, good ECs and I will network hard next year.)
Thank you for your inputs!
