    yeah, i think so. I have no idea what they are but i sent in my mid-year report and it said i had sent the first marking grades. Can I assume that we only need to submit the final marking grades if we're accepted?

    First marking period = first semester grades. Mid-year reports have these. Just a matter of semantics.

    So when you log in and then to to "Test Summary," and under status it says "Highest," what exactly does that mean?
  • piratemonkeypiratemonkey Registered User Posts: 607 Member
    it means that that is your highest score in that section of the test. So it shows the 'superscoring' or the one that they will look at since they always look at your highest scores.

    I applied ED, and for me the "first marking period" grades were my first quarter grades, since it was still a long time then before semester grades were out. That what I took first marking period to mean. For RD, since you're sending in a mid-year report, that would be the equivalent I guess.
