Courses on Common App
Answered

Common App requires you state the current courses you are taking in your senior year. As an international student my school doesn't work the same way as it does in the US. We are required to take: sciences, history, geography, spanish, english and philosophie etc all year round. Then on top of that, each senior has to take 2 courses that are harder.

When I fill in the "current courses" section of the common app, do I only list all the subjects or just the 2 harder courses?

To be accurate, you want to fill out the 12th-grade course including all the one from 11th grade even though you think it is a duplication.

And also add the 2 harder courses as well.

So if you took 6-courses last year that carry over, this year you will list 6+2 or 8 courses under this section.

Hope that clarifies things.

Good luck.
