Do universities see your quarter one grades from 12th grade?

When you apply to universities in November, do they see your grades so far from 12th grade?

I found out from the site, https://blog.getintocollege.com.

They said, "If you’re applying in an early admission round, your admission officer will see the first quarter of 12 th grade and if you’re applying in regular decision, your admission officer will see grades for the entire first semester of senior year."

That should solve your answer :D

All colleges whether you apply ED, EA, SCREA, or RD will require your HS counselor to submit your 12th-grade mid-year grades.

Therefore, they might not see the 1st quarter by itself if your HS Counselor doesn't submit it separately but they will see them in the context of seeing the 1/2 year transcript by Late Jan/Early February.

If you are applying to ED, EA, SCREA, most colleges will not request a quarterly report however they will ask for a 1/2 year report after they give you a provisional acceptance. All ED, EA, and SCREA acceptances are provisional meaning that if you bomb out with grades 12th grade, they can easily rescind your admittances. This is not just for Ivy League schools but for State colleges as well. I know of someone that got into UCLA and then had a serious case of Senioritis and got a couple of Ds on her 12th-grade report. Her application was rescinded. Same with RD. So even though you have to tell the college your intention of going say by May 1, if you end up with a 1.6 GPA in your last semester of 12th grade, they can still rescind your application.

Hope that helps answer your question.

Good luck with 12th grade.
