    Do I need recommendation letters from my 11th grade English, and math teachers.

    So I have been recently confused about who can write my recommendation letters. So my question is, do recommendation letters from 11th grade English and math teachers have more weight in the nomination/admission process. Also, am I able to get a letter of recommendation from any other teachers.
