Are midterm reports necessary for international students in the college application process?

I'm an international student and have a different school-year than US students. My school doesn't prefer sending out midterm results and only prints predicted scores on the official transcript. Would I still be required to submit a midterm report mandatorily (especially to schools like Caltech, Columbia, Harvard etc.) ? What if I directly submit the final exam scores in March?

If you are enrolled in an IB curriculum or A-level curriculum, then your high school counselor will be required to submit predicted scores as part of the mid-year report. If your school does not provide predicted scores, then you will be required to submit your final grades and transcript to the college when they become available. You will not be the person who submits final exam scores to any of your colleges. You understand that if you submit them, they are not official grades.

Midterm reports are not necessary in your case. All colleges expect you to do is report all of the information that is on your most recent transcript. The only necessary form of grade reporting is your official transcript, and your guidance counselor will submit it on your behalf. Hope this helps!

Submitting a midterm report is mandatory if that's what the application says. Predicted scores should be fine if you don't have midterm exams or you could say something like "In Progress" for the grades.

Hope this helps!
