What happens if your school changes grading system?

Hi, I am currently senior and going to IB school.

Until last year, we calculated GPA in percentage so out of 100%.

So my transcript that gets sent to colleges are in 100% scale. (grade through 9-11th)

But the thing is, we changed the system for 1-7 IB scale. And My first semester senior grade will be in that new scale.

Since our semester ends at January, colleges will receive the additional senior grade in this new scale later. (for additional midterm)

Will colleges look at the new scaled grade and be confused? Since it is not consistent...

    don't you think your school will send out an explanation? Or are the next three years of students just bound not to be let into any colleges?
