    I'm applying to the U.S, and I am stuck at the education and testing section.

    Education section:
    Do I need to include both IGCSE and A level subjects?

    Testing section:
    I just finished my AS, and am waiting for the results. I will be graduating next year in June 2017, as my A levels is a rush course. So if I am going to include AS results, it will be predicted.
    -Do I include my IGCSE results and AS predicted results?
    -If I have to include both, that would mean I have to report 12 scores, but the highest number of scores allowed to report is 10.

    But then, CommonApp posted the following:

    Should international applicants self-report the results of exams administered by the state or national examination boards?
    International applicants do not need to self-report the results of exams administered by state or national examination boards (e.g. Abiture, GSCE/A-Level, etc.). Instead, the school official completing the International Supplement to the School Report form should report this information on your behalf.

    Please help, I have no idea what to do.

    USA- r u sure after today?
    But on a serious note I think u need to look on to more reliable sources as obviously this is quite a serious issue that you wouldn't want to make a mistake on
    I would ask your school or perhaps contact the uni/ centre in USA that you would like to study in?
    However, the latter might just be turning what may be a little issue big so try your school first
    I would think they'd need all your qualifications so as to make the best/ most appropriate decisions
    Good luck with that!
