15 A-G Courses
To be considered for admission, you must complete 15 yearlong high school courses with a grade of C or better--at least 11 of them prior to senior year.
Take at least 7 of the required A-G courses in 11th and 12th grade.
Every year the Director of Undergraduate Admissions for the University of California will send an Update Letter request via email to every California high school asking them to submit updates to the schools' UC certified "a-g" courses list.

Repeating vs. Validating
What is the difference between repeating and validating a course?
Repeating a course occurs when a student earns a D or F grade and then retake a course with the same curriculum to clear the lower grade.
The new grade earned will be used in the GPA calculation.
For UC: All “a-g” coursework (original and repeats) should be reported on the application.
For CSU: Report the repeated grade only; or indicate the original grade if the repeat is in progress/planned.
What is validation?
Most validation rules are the same for CSU and UC.
Applies to ONLY to courses in mathematics and (LOTE) languages other than English
Completion of an advanced course (C grade or higher) in area of sequential knowledge; student is presumed to have completed the lower-level coursework.
Example: Spanish 2 is completed with a C
grade; Spanish 1 is validated by Spanish 2.
Can also be used to clear subject deficiency in which a grade of D or F was earned
Example: Algebra I is completed with a D grade; Algebra II is completed with a C grade; Algebra I is validated by Algebra II
Grade of D or F remains in the GPA calculation.
