IB Student Applying to Yale (and other American T10s) From Canada

Hello! I am hoping to apply to Yale and other American T10s from Canada and I am wondering if I must include a regular transcript alongside my IB predicted scores when applying.

I am hoping my IB report will be sufficient as I do not wish to apply with a traditional transcript showing all four years of HS. If this is not the case, please let me know!

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Your IB report is insufficient; you need a HS transcript.

    Top schools in the US will look at all four years of high school grades. You will as @skieurope says need to provide your full high school transcript.

    Why do you not want to provide your high school transcript?

    Thank you for your reply, this helps a lot!

    I received a B in grade 9 visual arts and at the time of my original post this felt like the end of the world LOL! (I otherwise have straight As)

    Do you happen to know if T10s give much weight to predicted IB grades? Or do they pay more attention to the transcript? I will be submitting both.

    I do not know for Canada. My guess is that colleges place as much weight on predicted from Canadian schools as they do from US schools - which is to say, zero. Transcripts are the important piece.
