i am an international student,and my school counselor is confused about the concept of mid year report.please,what does it consist of?
is it the summary of 10th grade and 11th grade transcript? please,i dont understand
A mid-year report is a form your counselor sends to the college you are applying to. It consists of the grades you compiled in the first semester of your senior year and is included with your transcript when you apply.
Mid-year reports are future grade reports for the classes you are taking now in your senior year. Since you can't know what grades you'll get when you apply to college, the Common and Coalition app ask your counselor to send them in when they become available in January or February. They are either going to be your semester grades if you are a 2-semester system or your first trimester if you are on a trimester system. The reason colleges want this is to make sure you are keeping up with your grades and course rigor. They don't want to see evidence of "senior'itis or senior slump" to set in before they admit you.
They are nothing you need to worry about right now.
@ixora67 Great question! A mid-year report is a form that is submitted by counselors to colleges that have your first semester grades. For more information about mid-term reports, look at this website: https://www.collegeconfidential.com/articles/mid-year-reports/.
