I have been stressing about my Indian CBSE grades for soooo long and was regretting my decision to not go IB( too expensive). Just figured out no curriculum is preferred over the other. Even though it seems like majority are from IB, many come from their own national curriculum so don’t worry. Also they understand why you’re grades are down in eleventh to my fellow CBSE students, they see almost a a uniform drop in tenth to eleventh grades like I got 93% in tenth(pretty good) But my eleventh marks are sooooooooooooo bad. Yup that bad atleast for my school’s standards, The colleges also know that teachers grade eleventh and any other papers very crudely ie strictly. So chillax.
