I'm currently on my last year of the IB programme, and I'm thinking about applying to UPenn on ED, but I'm really worried about my predicted grades because my level for A1 English (SL) is pretty ****ty compared to my other scores (which makes it stand out even more lol).
Biology HL 7
Economics HL 7
Psychology HL 7
Mathematics SL 7
French B SL 7
ENGLISH A1 SL 5
Will this 5 in English hurt my chances a lot in admissions to UPenn, considering the fact that English is a core subject?? I mean a 5 is not really a terrible score, but I'm scared that this might reflect me as a student who's good at subjects like science but bad at English, so could this be a serious problem?
My Verbal + Writing SAT scores are fine though.
CR 750 W 800 (M 770)
Can they make up for IB English?
Thanks in advance!
