If I repeat a grade do I have to show all my report card or can I choose which to show?

I need help please I tried looking for answer to this question everywhere but I could not find any. The college I’m applying to wants report card from 10th to 12th grade. I have a full report for 10th grade. Then I had to move and I basically moved to different schools bcus I didn’t know the language academically for 11th grade. Then this same year I found a English school that only went up to 10th grade so I had to go down a grade that same year. And my current 11th and 12 grade report cards are fine. But bcus of the moving around year I don’t have a full transcript/of that year. Can I choose not to include it?

Hi @Leanaaaaaa,

You are going to have to find a way to have your 2 schools where you did your 10th grade coursework report your 10th grade transcripts. There is no exception to this that I'm aware of. If you have an incomplete transcript, just report 11th and 12th, your application will be incomplete and they will not process it. This is not the same as a rejection but you won't even get an opportunity to be considered for college with an entire year of high school missing without grades.

So the most important thing you can do right now is track down those high schools and the counselors that are responsible for transmitting transcripts to colleges. That is more important than starting your college applications. For most colleges that I'm aware, they actually want to see your 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades not just 10-12.

Good luck.
