    Hi Guys,

    So I'm in the middle of my Common App how should I put A Level Grades as it is not an option on the common app. After reading some previous posts, I saw that I should click and option saying:
    Is promotion within your educational system based upon standard leaving examinations given at the end of lower and/or senior secondary school by a state or national leaving examinations board?
    I can't find this option at all on the common app can someone help me?

    Also, how would I calculate GPA as an international applicant, and where do I put my GCSE Grades?


    Hi, for the question about leaving exams you should probably put yes, and your grades should be reported by your councillor. If you have any other questions just send me a message!

    A Level predicted grades can be added under 'Secondary School Leaving Examinations' but need to be reported again under your transcript anyway. GCSEs go on your transcript.

    Transcript is also known as 'School Report'/'Secondary School Report'.

    The 'Secondary School Leaving Examinations' section is found under 'Testing' in the Common App categories. You need to answer yes to the 'promotion in your school system' question under 'Tests Taken' of that category which will unlock the 'Secondary School Leaving Examinations' section. Make sure you choose 'Predicted' for Score Type.
