My percentage increased from 80% in grade 9 to 93% in grade 10. It dropped from 93% in grade 10 to 83% in grade 11. In Grade 12, it rose up again to 93%. How will this fluctuation affect my admissions chances? My school uses a comparative grading system. Therefore, I have mostly As and a couple Bs in all my years of high school. I have decent extracurriculars. I just want to know if my academics will raise a red flag on my application due to the fluctuation of grades. My SAT score was 1450.

Your grades are decent, if you were taking more rigorous course work which caused the fluctuation than it shouldn't raise any concern but more and more universities are incorporating holistic admission processes, therefore I wouldn't work, your SAT scores are okay. Though if you intend to apply I'd suggest going test optional to top universities and making sure the rest of your application stands out.
