FINDING THE RIGHT TRACK FOR SCIENCE
The state requires three units of science to graduate. Most colleges require three or four science units including three LAB sciences. Physical Science does NOT count as a lab science. Also, the state of South Carolina requires students to take an End-of -Course Test at the conclusion of Biology I which counts 20% of the final grade. It is important that students make guidance counselors aware of their plans for post secondary schooling to aid in preparation and proper registration for courses!
