11th scores!

Hey guys!
How much would the overall application be affected, in terms of grades if the 11th scores were a bit haywire?
Suppose, first unit test around a 70% and then missed 2 exams due to absentism and health issue, then directly finals with 85+?

    You don't have to send each unit test grades. Transcripts usually only have the final grades.

    ^ Exactly. So what is your aggregate? Anything above 80 should be fine depending on the places you will be applying to.

    You should not really worry if u show an upward trend in ur 12 th midterm exams.
    But, u may have to give an explainary note to colleges why ur performance slackened in 11th grade.

    Oh, great, darn. I got a 76% in 11th. I hope that's not too less for UC's (other than UCB). :/

    Not pretty bad, though I can't say much without perspective. Though this should comfort you: You will *not* be rejected because of those marks if everything else is fine :)

    Loooving aggregates!
    Thanks guys :)

    A lot of it depends on how your peers do as well. If the highest in your grade is 80%, and you have 79%, you're obviously very strong, but if the highest is 95%, you're grades are evidently mediocre.

    In that sense my rank is fairly well, but seems more demeaning when class strength is mere 30 people!
    How does that affect it?
  • Mrinal2207Mrinal2207 Registered User Posts: 779 Member
    In a class of 30 people, u need to be in the top 3 (10%) of the class to impress adcoms, given ur not so low scores.
    Hope it helps.

    The smaller your class size, the more lenient they are with percentiles/deciles/quartiles/quintiles/rank. Top 5 should be good if you're getting a rank. Otherwise top 3. In comparison, if it were a class of 300, top 15 (5%) would be a high quality rank.

    ^^off topic tastycles, but wanted to ask that from my school( or city rather) will be applying for US univs, so will that go against me or me being ranked 2/234 in my class and national TT player would balance the odds??
  • Mrinal2207Mrinal2207 Registered User Posts: 779 Member
    sorry, there should be a *no* in between.
    it should be like this:

    My SAT Scores and my EC's are pretty good. Only my school grades are a little below average.
  • tastyclestastycles Registered User Posts: 183 Junior Member
    Your rank is excellent irrespective of EC's. You should try getting recruited for TT if at all possible.
  • Mrinal2207Mrinal2207 Registered User Posts: 779 Member
    ^^alas, there is no college that recruits for TT.
    But, I am sure that colleges will think of it as a great EC.
