a-g-Requirements

A-G refers to the high school courses required for entrance to the University of California (UC) and the California State University systems (CSU). They are so-called because there are seven general subject areas labeled "A" through "G". These requirements should not be confused with the courses required by the state of California or individual school districts for high school graduation.  A – G requirements are less in some subjects, and greater in others, when compared to state and local districts.
The California State University (CSU) system requires a minimum of a "C" grade in all A-G courses while the University of California (UC) system requires a 3.0 Grade Point Average in the A-G courses meaning that a "C" grade can be balanced by an "A" grade in another class.
A common opinion among school counselors is that taking the recommended number of math and science requirements may double a student's chances of admission to a UC campus, compared with just taking the minimum to graduate with a high school diploma.
