    To everyone who hasn't done an IB (or A levels etc.), have you been asked to provide anything else besides your predicted grades after sending your application, such as your term/yearly grade reports from previous years?

    Thank you!

    universities generally only want to see evidence of standardised exams so they wouldn't ask to see internal results or school reports.

    I'm an EU student and was wondering the same. In France (the country I'm currently in high school in) school reports are a big deal and the most important part of our higher education applications. But I've applied with UCAS in September and I'm a bit taken aback by this system because it seems only grades from exams are taken into account.
    But you guys in the UK also have that sort of gradebook you receive each semester at home... Right?

    No. My son was a US applicant last year and only provided AP and SAT results.

    Which country are you applying from?

    The issue with school reports is that there's no absolute standard. With public exams, there is.

    Thank you for your answer I guess it makes sense... But in French gradebooks every single teacher writes a small detailed paragraph about the student and its work/behavior and that's the most crucial part because in my country unis deem this the most important part of the application.
    But on the other hand they don't require a reference letter! So in the end I guess both ways of doing are pretty much the same

    Applying from the Czech Republic. As mentioned above, in Europe, previous grade reports are a big deal that is why I am concerned.

    Don't be. The only thing you need from your school / teachers is a good reference.

    My son was just asked by Cambridge to provide certified translations of his last two years school reports until October 22nd. It was a rush to find a certified translator so fast. He is applying from an OIB school in France. Imperial College just asked for details of all predicted grades.
