Do colleges need my final grades from senior year after RD deadlines?

I’m a gap year and international student, who did CAIE A Levels. By the time I receive my final grades from my senior year exams, I would’ve submitted my regular decision applications. Do I still need to send them my final grades after the deadline?

I'm also doing A Levels, so I know what your concern is. At the time you're applying, you need to submit your IGCSE grades and predicted A Level grades. Colleges will only expect to receive your final grades after the deadline. So just submit them when they're available. Apply by the deadline with IGCSE and predicted A Level grades. They'll probably only ask for final grades after you receive your admissions decision.

I agree with this answer because colleges would like to assess your grades overall even if they choose to accept you to determine possible merit scholarship considerations. In the event that you are put on a waitlist, then submitting final grades, an updated resume and letter of intent is extremely helpful to increase your chances of getting off the wait list by showing improvement in grades and in other fields.
