Recently, I got a report card with IB CAS mark of 70%.

I'm baffled and frustrated beyond belief at this.

Not only did the school start to show CAS marks in report card for the first time, the new CAS coordinator (?) is ignorant and immature. The person who dropped the full ib and didn't attend any CAS meetings or handed in anything managed to get the same mark as me who diligently did everything that was asked of, but just handed in the interim assessment thing in late.

I'm not sure if this will count as GPA or what, but will this affect my prospects to university at all?

Technically, on IB transcript, it should be worth as only a completion mark and overall, should be worth roughly around 1 out of 45. But I'm scared ****less that this might cause my downfall or something equally or more drastic and exaggerated.

Please help

I'm fairly certain CAS is worth nothing except qualifying for the diploma. The core marks come from ToK and extended essay. I know we've never had to do anything for CAS except filling in logs and completion forms, and never got a mark of any kind.

And universities won't care about it. You seem to be making a big deal out of it. At the end of IB you will be very happy with a 70% in most subjects!

If you understood and grasped the actual point of CAS you'll be fine. As already mentioned, The activities you did will matter more than your IB CAS mark so chillax!
