So in 9th-11th grade I have had all straight A's and especially high marks in Maths classes, usually 96+. My junior mark was 99 on average in maths.
Now, I'm applying this year and my list includes many top colleges.
So in the transcript they'll see 9th-11th grade marks.
Now, in 12th grade, in my mid term exams, I expect A' s in all subjects....except pure mathematics. I might get a B or maybe even a C if things go wrong.
I got 1520 SAT and I intend to take SAT 2 in October including Math 2 which I expect to score close to 800. if Oct gets cancelled then november.
But let's assume SAT 2 doesn't occur.
So how much will this one bad grade affect my chances in the regular round?(In early round they won't get to see it).
