Where to place my senior secondary leaving Examinations

On the senior secondary Leaving Examinations section of the common app, I am only allowed to put in one subject and grade for each leaving exam. However, I did nine subjects under one exam. So how am I going to put in my other eight subjects and their respective grades? Should I put them in my additional Information essay? Or should I report nine senior secondary leaving examinations, so I can input the subjects and scores?

I was also confused when I first got to that section. In my country, we sit for 7 different subjects when taking our secondary school-leaving exam. So, I simply typed that I took 7 secondary school-leaving exams and wrote the score for each. I think it should be done that way because I found that there is a character limit on the space where you type in the subject (not enough to type in 9 or even 7 subjects). Let me know if that works out for you!

Sure, you can mention that in the additional information essay. And also remember to submit every transcript from 9th grade (or any international equivalent). It should show all the subjects you have mentioned in the Senior Secondary Leaving Examinations section. Hope this helps!
