    Hi, I am applying from India. I scored really badly on my half yearly exams due to SAT prep. So is it possible to send in my first pre boards marksheet instead of my half yearly marksheet?

    I am applying for fall 17
    I have got my transcripts for class 9th, 10th, 11th(all with school and college stamps)
    I changed my school after 10th (ICSE-SSC)
    In the common app I have added my class 9th and 10th counsellor !
    Question 1) how will I upload my class 11 transcript

    2) i got a 55/100 in physics in class 11 but I was among the top 5 ( will less score affect my chances in elite universities)

    3) is class 11 marksheet to be uploaded with the transcript?

    Hey Everyone! I am in class 12 as of writing this. I am taking a Gap year to apply to US colleges. I am giving my boards in March and its results will be released in May.

    I scored a 1310 on the SAT in May 2016 but wasn't able to apply due to my pre boards. I am taking SAT II in May (Math 2, Physics and Chemistry) and re taking the SAT in October. (June SAT has been canceled). I also plan to take my AP exams in May too.

    As for my extracurriculars I will be doing voluntary work along with making my own internet content. ( If you have any suggestions as to what else I can do please leave them below! )

    Do I have to also send my 12th boards mark sheet? Also I had changed schools in class 10, so my high school year has been split into 9 and 10th at one school and 11th and 12 at another. Do i have to send my 9th and 10th transcripts under a different envelope or do i send it with my 11th and 12th one?

    What Ive read in other discussions is that your current guidance councillor will put all your grades ( 9,10,11,12th) in one document and I have to send a sealed stamped copy to the Universities I am applying to.

    Looking forward to interact with you and hopefully see you in the US.

    @vanillasniper98 Don't convert into GPA.
  • InfiniteLibraryInfiniteLibrary Registered User Posts: 335 Member
    @BruceVici Yes, you will have to send in your 12th marksheet - almost all universities require it.

    Are you sending your transcripts by post? You don't have to usually - at least not until you're admitted. If you're applying through CommonApp, your counselor will have to upload it online. If it's not through CommonApp, then different universities have different procedures which you'll have to check in their websites.

    @BruceVici Hi my daughter is going to be a freshman this fall. Like you she had also done 10th and 12th from different boards. We just put the two sealed and school stamped envelopes from the two schools in one bigger one and sent it in. It was accepted without any problems . If you are not sure then you can talk to someone at admissions of the intended college.
