Hi Alex,

In my 3 year bachelor degree I performed very poorly in the first 2 years to score around 55%, especially maths was as low as 35%, however in the third year I dedicated extra hours and managed to score 70% thus pushing my overall aggregate to first class ~65%. I have 2 questions

1) Should I explain my lower grades in the first 2 years in the optional essay despite my aggregate being first class
2) Though my maths was poor initially, I perfomed excellent in financial accounts in the thrid year to score 90% to sow my comfort with numbers, also as a further proof in my GMAT I scored 50/51 around 94%. Again, should I explain my lower score in math in the first year of my B.Com degree?

Is it required to draw any attention on these 2 aspects in my optional essay even though the adcoms will understand all this just by looking at my transcripts. Regards, Sid

Hi Alex,

I am not sure if you missed this one. I can wait, but just wanted to make sure it does not slip through the cracks. Thanks, appreciate your help.

Just acknowledge it in 1-2 sentences. It is what it is. If you spend too much time and space writing a novel about your undergrad grades, the adcom will question your priorities and your confidence. It's not about being perfect, it's about being compelling -- and most applicants who get in are far from perfect (the difference is they don't acknowledge but don't obsess over whatever potential concerns may be in their profile).

Hi,

In the below statement writeen by you "the difference is they don't acknowledge but don't obsess over whatever potential concerns may be in their profile". Did you mean "the difference is they do acknowledge but don't obsess over whatever potential concerns may be in their profile". I am confused whether you meant don't or do. Thanks

Don't know what I said there actually. Again, just write 1-2 sentences. That's all.
