Confusion About Official Transcripts

Hi, I recently got off the UCSD waitlist, and am required to send in my official transcripts. I attended two different high schools which both had different grading systems. I am worried, because under my current high school, 3 of my freshman year courses count as A's and under my former, they count as B's (my former school). On my UC application I had listed these grades as A's since they counted as such at my current school and appear like that on my new transcript. Will this affect me in any way or should I be okay, since the school I'm graduating from counts these as A's? (This whole thing has to do with my new school counting anything above a 90% as an A). I just noticed this as I was looking over my old transcript, which I haven't seen since in transferred two years ago.14 replies
