<p>What year do colleges look at to check on your secondary schooling grades? Do they look at all four years (which i dnt think is probable) or do they look at junior year and/or senior year?</p>

<p>Second semester of senior year is all that really matters.</p>

<p>what grades do they look at? in general 10-12 :D that was an easy question.</p>

<p>^^ what GreenDayFan said. But i'd say mostly junior year, i always hear that its the most important year.</p>

<p>Since they accept you during your senior year, they look mostly at junior year. Which was a good thing for me--I had some incredible teachers and worked really hard that year, getting straight A's. That carried over to the first nine weeks of my senior year but I tanked fourth nine weeks due to a horrible case of senioritis.</p>

<p>Also, as far as grades go, they look at final grades with sophomore and junior years. If you get a C one nine weeks it doesn't matter as long as you get an A or B for the course.</p>

<p>With freshman year, they mostly look for requirements to my knowledge. For example, I took my language in 8th and 9th grade, meaning they would only look at German on the ninth grade part of my transcript. They saw the B so I was okay there. I don't think they really cared about, say, English or Geography or Algebra I (which were all A's for me); Bio may have been looked at though (which unfortunatley I got a B in).</p>

<p>I think they'd look at all 4 years.</p>

<p>I mean, why would middle school teachers put so much emphasis on you needing to get serious in high school just so you could slack off another year?</p>

<p>They don't really look at your freshman grades. They realize that you're still transitioning in freshman year and they understand that you may not have done your best.</p>

<p>Colleges look at your transcript right?</p>

<p>And your transcript shows all the years you earned high school credit, the classes you took, and the grades you got. I started earning high school credit in 7th grade, and my transcript shows the high school classes I took from 7th grade onward. So, they should see that I took Spanish 1, Spanish 2, Algebra 1, and Geometry in my middle school years because I got high school credit for them.</p>

<p>11th grade would probably be the most important year.</p>

<p>thx you guys ^^</p>

<p>i've been in a depressed mood and drained from all the IB work and deadlines and responsibilities...but i guess i gotta kick it up a notch, IB or not i think i gotta do better...</p>

<p>do you guys who think it's 11th grade, think its all of that year or the last semester or which ever?</p>

<p>they see your transcript, but i know a lot(most?) schools recalculate your gpa not including freshman year, so yeah we're not making this up, freshman year really isn't too important.</p>

<p>usualy 10-11th for admission, and most will check your 12th grade grades to see you're going okay and not slacking.</p>

<p>if u apply early sr grades dont count as i right?</p>

<p>They do look at freshman year for trends.</p>

<p>I doubt senior would count too much. Chances are you've already been accepted into college. </p>

<p>I wonder if they separate it into grades at all (I wouldn't know, never seen a college app before). I started high school classes in middle school, so I think they'd just look at a list of classes you've taken and the grades you received in them.</p>
