Does Harvard look only at the average of a candidate's grade 9 and 10 years? Or does it look into marks of individual subjects as well?

To be honest, stop fretting about your grade 9 and 10 marks, they are of little significance. Rather than wasting your mental energies upon worrying about those, focus upon your grade 11 and 12 courses and ensuring those marks are as high as possible. What's done is done, nothing can be changed for your grade 9 and 10 marks at this point.

Given the fact that Harvard has access to your entire high school transcript, which includes the marks of the individual subjects, they would probably take a look at individual subjects for the purpose of examining your long-standing performance in a particular subject that you are adept in, for instance mathematics. The actual mark is of little significance, just the range that it is in.
