I have consistently gotten A-/A/A+ for the past three years of high school but am now getting B/B+'s. This is partly because I'm taking harder courses, and partly because I was distracted by college applications (ironically enough). The senior year progress reports are due by December. Would it affect me terribly?
Thanks in advance to all who replied :)
It certainly doesn't help. Your achievements from prior years still remain yours, but you might possibly show a college that you're unable to handle the higher course rigor as well, which doesn't bode well for college. It's not the end of the world, though, especially if you apply to lesser competitive colleges, because you have demonstrated your academic aptitude across your three other years of study.
While B's aren't the worst, they certainly aren't great. However, I believe the equivalent of a B in an AP class would be an A in an unweighted class. Colleges do take other things into consideration as well, so do not fret too much. Whatever effort you put into your studies will ultimately reflect on your grades! I believe in you! Finish this last year strong!
Thx a lot for this post!
