IB Scores and Rescission from UPenn

navyrednavyred 0 replies1 threads New Member
Hi all, I just received my IB diploma and associated scores... Unfortunately, it was a good deal less than what I had been hoping for. I had a predicted score of 45 points, and ended up with 38. In at least four classes, I am within three percentage points of a higher grade, which is incredibly frustrating, as this would have given me 42. While I am still proud of this score, I am worried that my regular decision acceptance to the University of Pennsylvania might be rescinded. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of situation, or any advice otherwise?

Some more information on my academic profile - my internal high school transcript shows straight 7s through the end of senior year, and I was valedictorian of my class. I have taken five higher level IB classes, and two standard level classes. My SAT score was good, but not amazing - 1480, and I have three strong SAT IIs. I am an American, born and raised in Europe, with 10 years at an international school there.

Any thoughts or advice would be very welcome!

    It won't, unless one of the non-TOK/EE essay scores was a 3, and that's your transcript grade for the class.
