<p>I know that we must leave blank the space "GPA", but now I want to know from people who got accepted in top schools which was their "grades average"..
Should I do the average of all four years? (9-10-11-12(first trimester))
Are 9th grade scores important? (In my country not, but I don't know if they are so important for admission.)</p>
<p>I'm worried about my 9th grade scores because I got "7 out 10", this year I got "8 out of 10" and the next I will get "9 out 10", which is outstanding , so I should work hard.
Might I balance my GPA with a 9 out 10 ?</p>
<p>I think that I might balance it with great SAT scores and wonderful EC's, I'm studing to success in National Physics Olympiad, but I'm not sure what do you think about it?</p>
<p>Ps: In my country we use a decimal scale that always is not considered, so teachers do what they want. They usually start from 9 or 8; 10 is an unusual grade. There isn't anybody in all italy who got a 10 out of 10, it's impossible becuase teachers don't respect the decimal system and because Italian school system is not easy.
Should I say it to colleges?</p>
