Depends upon what you were trying to tune it to, Dick... an octave A string on a 12 string would be tuned to the second fret A of a G banjo 3rd string, but I'm guessing you want the banjo 5th string G which is an octave above that.

A 12-string octave G (3rd string) is normally tuned to that pitch at full scale length (the banjo's is much shorter), so I'd give that a go.
