How to Send High School Marksheets (transcripts)

I am just beginning the process of preparing applications for graduate schools. I understand we have to submit an official transcripts from undergraduate institutions. What about high schools? Do they accept photocopy of high school marksheet. If someone can answer this, I will be very thankful.

High school transcripts (or mark sheets) are not mandatory documents. But, I would recommend you to send them along with other college application documents.

For High School transcripts, you can make photocopies of the original document and get it attested (notarized). That’s sufficient and you don’t have to make it official by getting signed from the registrar.

Don’t forget to include the following documents

  • photocopy of GRE and TOEFL score report
  • copy of passport front page (that has your personal details)

Do you have any other questions related to transcripts? Leave a comment below this blog post.

While applying for Graduate School, High School Mark Sheets are not required. Unless they are part of your Essay.

    I applied for an MPH through SOPHAS and the concerned universities asked me for a WES evaluation. I submitted my documents to WES as shown for Indian students with a non-medical background and also completed the payments.
    Now my tracking page on the WES website shows that the mark-sheets I submitted are “Not Acceptable” and I have to Re-submit them. (Like most universities in India, my uni gives only one set of original mark-sheets, to me so I sent photocopies attested by the Registrar to WES. This was mentioned on their website)

    I have been sending them emails everyday for the past three months but their is no response. They wont even take note of the problem and tell me what I should do. I even called them up twice and waited for an hour(on international call rates!!!) to speak to the customer care executive but to no avail.

    I have received a tentative acceptance from two pretty good universities and it’s all stuck due to these WES Evaluation Reports only. I really don’t know what to do! If someone has faced a similar problem or has any idea of resolving it, please please help me!!!

    Do the certificates of extra-curricular activities needed to be attested too or just the photocopies are fine?

    I wrote my toefl exam on november 21. till now I didn't get my toefl score card. but so many universities asking need to send the photocopy of toefl score card and also asking upload scanned version of toefl score card what can I do now?

    Can I send without photocopy of toefl score card?

    • tasneem on April 23, 2013 at 3:02 PM

      u can take a screenshot of your results page on the toefl website and send that. and maybe explain the issue to the university.

    no.of copies of 10th marks sheeet,12th marks sheet & U.G. transcripts to be send to the universities.

  10. Shaival on November 4, 2010 at 6:23 AM

    Are these really to be sent?

    1) 10th marksheet

    2) 12th marksheet

    3) GRE/TOEFL marksheet

    4) Passport xeroxes

    I do not understand why you need to send them They are never mentioned on the University site. ( Even under International student requirements)

    ANd isn’t it true that Admission Committees really hate extra materials which are never asked?

    Then why to send ?

    Please Clarify asap.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I have attended two undergraduate institutions. One for 3 year B.Sc. and another for 2 year M.Sc. The problem is that the first institution doesn't include the certificate in the transcripts it issues. Is it mandatory to have certificate included in the transcripts?

    Thanks,

    Ashish

      No its required only at the time of admission . Usually they ask for official transcripts of undergraduate degree along with application.
