yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

I'm in grade 9 summer taking civics and careers right now - and I thought I should fast-track one of the sciences that I might not need. I thought Biology because I might go to software engineering or computer science, so I only need physics and chemistry. But should I would take grade 12 biology anyway to 'keep options open', not for engineering? Are my courses too heavy for grade 10? I got 87% in Grade 9 Science.
Biology3 (Grade 11)
Will I be able to handle? Could I take Biology3 in Grade 10 summer instead?
Also, I'm thinking: Maybe I don't really care about what I get in Biology 12 even if I don't drop it - because it is not a prerequisite for engineering and I can just put it out of my top 6 if I have 9 grade 12 courses.
For Grade 11 I'm thinking: (also into grade 12..)
Advanced Functions 4
Chemistry 3 -Chemistry4
Physics 3 -Physics4
Visual Arts 3 -Visual Arts4
Computer Science 3 -ComputerScience4
+International Business4 (Plus spare)
Is this a smart decision? I am considering dropping out of civics and careers just to free up grade 10 of any grade 11 courses. If I do that, I'm thinking of taking Biology3 in Grade 10 summer school instead.
Thoughts or advice on the biology route? Could I take Biology Grade 11 in summer school? Is that bad for immediately going in Grade 12 Biology in 11? Or general advice / experience?
What school should I got to if i want a job in this after my undergrad. Ik of UofT, Waterloo, And Queens. But If I'm only willing to stay in Toronto is UofT the only options? Or is Ryerson good enough as well?
I am trying to run a simulation where I look at historical data of stocks from the past 24 years. The requirements of the stocks are that they are trading for more than $5, and have a sufficient amount of volume per day (no penny stocks!). Every time a stock goes up by 50% or more from January Year 1 to January Year 2, I buy the stock at the high price it has become. Then I sell it exactly one year later on January Year 3. CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME DO THIS??????
recently looked at the Toronto film school and there program not sure tho from what i read online if it's good or not schools seems ok but would love to hear feed back from other and what school you might recommend.
I want to be able to gain an entrance scholarship to any school that has the requirements I accomplish during my days in High School. I want to be able to do what I am most capable of doing. Computer sciences has made me want to be able to study all about the system and software. I feel like I won't be able to accomplish with such low apperances. I would like some advice on how I can become a better student.
