Ok.. so in my 9th and 10th grade school, the teachers collect a student profile, where they keep our certificates and achievements and stuff. But we don't get to keep it- it gets sent off to the CBSE board (don't know why).
But here's what I'm worried about- it starts getting piled up (the profile) in 8th grade, and I included a bunch of useless nonsense (participation stuff) because I though my profile was super unimpressive. They give out a pretty long report card of about 7 pages (per grade)- there are individual assessments, semester wise reports, grades in value systems and finally, the cumulative GPA.
So here's my questions- do students, and students only, get to control what is and what is not sent to colleges? Or can an external organization also decide? Also, when applying to colleges, do we only send the cumulative grade point, or other stuff too- like number of days attended, height, weight, personal stuff (like our interests or achievements)?
