Due to the present COVID-19 situation, our high school graduating board exam is very hard to be taken by September 2023 where it was scheduled to be taken April 2023. I'm planning to apply to universities in Fall'23. If I get an acceptance letter with a generous scholarship but am unable to attend their first semester classes because I won't be graduating by that time. Will the university waive my graduation exam? Or cancel my admission?
If you communicate with schools about your delayed board exam results in the additional info section of your applications, there is a good chance that they will allow you to defer your enrollment until the Spring semester. You should also circle back with them again soon after they accept you.
Colleges will receive a school report from your guidance councilor that will explain your situation, and they will take it into account holistically. Schools are typically generous with deferment/leave of absence policies, especially due to COVID-19. Many incoming freshmen to Georgetown University, my alma mater, deferred their enrollment during the height of the pandemic. Hope this helps!
Likely your admissions offer is dependent on you graduating high school on time. Therefore the university will most likely revoke your admission offer when you fail to graduate.
