Pages: Midyear Grade Report FAQ

Here’s what you need to know about the Midyear Grade Report before you begin filling it out. First though, relax! This is easy—don’t worry about getting it wrong.

What is it?

The Midyear Grade Report is where you send us an update with your latest grades.

When should I fill it out?

By March 5. You should report your available grades for the fall semester or second quarter. If your school uses a trimester schedule, please use your latest trimester grades, even if we already have them.

My counselor/school already sent my midyear grades. Do I still need to submit the report?

Yes. You should complete the report with your latest grades.

How do I fill out the report?

The report has fields for you to report your coursework and grades. It’s similar to the Self-Reported Coursework Form from the application, except that we’re only looking for current-year courses and grades.

How do I fill out the grades section?

Make it clean please. Like this:

BC Calculus 89
IB Chemistry HL 97
Japanese A-


Or, if you have quarter grades:

Biology A, A-
AP Economics 96, 92


Or, if you feel like you need to explain something, put it only in the subject section like this:

Java I (taken at B.C.C.) A+
Multivariable Calc (online) Pass

In the Grade box, please list only your grades, no explanations. For example, it is sufficient to write “B+” rather than “B+ (final grade)” or “B+ (online course).”

Report your grades just the way they would appear on your transcript. No need to convert them to a letter system.

If your transcript provides quarter grades and a midterm exam grade but no semester grade, you should list the quarter grades and the midterm exam grade. Don’t create your own average, or report your best guess as to what your grade will be. If your school uses a trimester schedule, please use your most recent trimester grades.

What if I make a mistake and need to edit the report?

If you have already submitted your form, there is no way for you to edit it again.

Now you’re ready to log in to your MIT application portal and start filling out the report. Thanks for taking care of business!
