So, at my school, we take all 6 IB courses throughout both years and do the exams all at the end of the second year.
Most students have different teachers in their 1st and 2nd year for the same subjects. That means that for many of my courses, this is the first time I've had a teacher.
Usually, we are provided with predicted marks later on in the year (around January / February), as that's when our teachers are able to have an accurate idea of what we might get.
The issue is that the college I applied to (Trinity) emailed my reference, and asked if he could submit predicted marks. I went to my IB coordinator, and she explained that while we can get predicted marks, they will not be very accurate as they have only been based on one or two evaluations in the past two months.
That being said, my teachers have predicted the following marks:
Anthropology HL: 7
French HL: 6
English HL: 5
History HL: 5
Bio SL: 6
Math Studies: 6
How likely do you guys think that I will be to get an interview if my IB coordinator were to explain these circumstances when sending in my predicted marks?
My proposed course of study is HSPS.
Thank you so much!
What are the downsides?
