    What is a transcript?

    Hi,

    I have send a resume and a cover letter to apply for a new position in en english speaking country and I have been selected for starting the interview process.

    The hiring manager sent me an email asking: "Could you please send me a copy of your high school scores, official university transcripts?"

    What "university transcripts" exactly stand for? Is he asking for all my scores or only the documents which show that I have graduated?

    Transcripts are official documents from schools listing the classes you've taken, the grades you received, any awards and degrees you received, and (I think) any disciplinary actions taken against you.

    They've been a part of American and Canadian academic life for a long time. They certainly didn't seem like a new concept when I had to submit high school transcripts with a university application in 1973, nor when I submitted university transcripts to a Canadian university a couple of years later.

    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
