Transcript Vs Expected/Predicted Grades

Recommended Posts

My expected grades are not that good. I only got a total of 29. However, I feel like I can improve on this. Will the unis look at my final grades or my expected grades? I am applying to Canada

Your University will look at your expected grades to make their decision and your final grades once they come out. Your admission would have been complete by then, but that doesn't mean that it is fine if you do not study. If your final grades drop by a huge margin, you will most likely have to give them some reason.

Your admission (as in conditional offer) will be solely based on your predicted grades, as well as extracurricular factors. Your finals scores can only *confirm* a predicted grade, but not reverse an outright rejection (unless you appeal, which doesn't have great odds). In short, you can get your offer revoked if you perform terribly on the exams, but a good performance will (usually) not change a decision that the university has made for your admission.

@kscmel512If your final grades become exceptionally better (say a total of 34), then it's also an option to take a year off and apply this fall. You can also apply to some Southern Hemisphere schools with your final grades.
