These letters seem to mean so much on a high school transcript, but does you know what they mean? UC/a-g courses are courses that have been reviewed by the UC committee and deemed to have the rigor of a college preparatory course.  In short, these classes are designed to prepare you for college.  They are meant to emphasize analytical thinking – challenging the student with substantial reading, writing, and problem solving requirements.

If you intend to become a UCLA Bruin or a Cal Bear, if you intend on applying to any University or California (UC) or California State University (CSU) school, straight out of high school, the expectation is that you take a required selection of courses in order to apply.
