Should International Student Send Low A-Levels to College?


I am an international student who got accepted to Yale with an excellent IGCSE result and SAT score. But the night before my first A-level exam, my father had an aneurysm and had to undergo immediate surgery and then remained on a ventilator for almost a month. I informed Yale about the whole situation and they deferred my entry. Now that the results for the A-levels are out, I got a B, E and E. I am extremely worried that Yale may rescind my admission even though I'm registered for a retake next month. Please suggest if I should send Yale my scores or wait for the retake results to come in.

I'm very sorry to hear about your father's health situation. I'm sure that the stress it has caused you and your family is immense.
