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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
Let's start a thread for us to talk about our questions, share averages, extra curriculars, and even talk about our feelings right now going through the application process! Good luck to everyone applying this year!
Hello! I was wondering if any of the high school class of 2018 has heard back from Queen's engineering and if you have, what was your top 5 average?? :)
I was also wondering if I have any chance of being admitted if my marks are....
AP Chemistry: 88% (final)
AP Physics: 92% (in progress)
AP Calculus: 94% (in progress)
English (not AP): 90% (in progress)
AP Statistics (data management): 95% (final)
Edit: turns out I actually have a 92 in physics :))
Also, this doesn't go into the calculation of my average but if it helps I have a final mark of 93% in Advanced Functions
My ECs are decent, and I wrote all my AP's on my PSE so Queen's will know that I took them. I would say that my PSE is average, maybe slightly above average, although I know that this is very subjective. This was only my first submission average so hopefully I will be able to get it to 92.8% at least by April. Do you think I could possibly get in?
I'm in grade 11 rn and I'm wondering if the courses that I'm taking are competitive for university admission:
eng 12 U
physics 12 U
chem 12 U
com tech 12 M
3d rendering M
and I'm taking advanced functions this semester. I'm taking all the pre req for engineering programs for uoft, Waterloo, western and such BUT I don't know whether my course selection is strong enough for grade 12.
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.
Hello. I am in grade 11 in Ontario. So I was wondering about my average mark for grade 11 and 12. I’ve seen a lot of people saying grade 11 marks don’t matter at all, only for early admission, but other people say universities make decisions based on first semester, second semester midterms and grade 11 marks. My grade 11 average mark is 89 right now but I have slacked off a little bit this year and I’m aiming for aaround 95+ for grade 12. Would there be a high chance for me to get admissions for engineering programs in universities like UofT, waterloo, ryerson, Mcmaster and such?
I've applied to Western Engineering and McMaster Engineering from another university and I understand they treat the averages from other Universities differently than they do HS students' averages. Does anyone know about what the difference in equivalent percentages would be comparing an HS average vs a University Transfer Average?
I've heard its about 7-8% difference, but I've also heard 4-5% and up to 12% so I am not too sure.
I currently have an 85.3% average coming from another Engineering Program at another University.
As a child, I have been fascinated by aircrafts and spacecrafts. I have always loved the power of flying. However, as I was growing up, I started developing an interest in robotics. Both are related to each other - both are about machines. I always wanted to know how things work. But there's a part of me that wanted to go to the aerospace and a half of me wants to pursue the mechatronics part.
I LOVE BOTH OF THEM! THIS IS LIKE CHOOSING BETWEEN STAR WARS AND HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, I'm a high school graduate who wants to do electrical engineering. I need to update my Grade 12 chemistry mark because my day school teacher wasn't good at teaching most of the material (Class average was in the 60's). I'm thinking of taking chemistry through ILC but I have been seeing a lot of mixed review about it. Most reviews being either very good or very bad. My question is, has anyone taken ILC for Grade 12 chemistry and can tell me their experience? What mark did you end up getting and how hard did you work to achieve that mark? Also how long did it take you to finish the course?
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:
-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA
Will an Ontario College accept you with a failing University transcript? I finished all applications but i'm just worried if I don't get it. I studied sciences in my first year of University but now I applied to an Engineering program in College and my high school average was about 85%. Do you think the Colleges will let me into their program?
Would really like to hear what you have to say about this, thank you.
I have applied for undeclared engineering at ryerson without knowing how competitive this program might be compared to other engineering programs... Is this program more competitive and thus harder to get into for a high schooler? Please let me know down on the comments. Thanks
What's up boys. I am currently enrolled at Burhamthorpe Collegiate Institute. My average this semester is pretty decent, sitting at a 59.333%. I know this exceeds some of the averages at the top engineering school such as waterloo but I have extraordinary extracirruclars such as male prostitution, abortion enthusiast, and webcumming. I have recently acquired 62 matches on tinder being my all time high.
What are my chances for engineering at Canada's top universities?
Hey everyone, Im from Calgary but I'm stuck between choosing UofC and UofA for Engineering as I have been accepted into both. I am hoping to do Electrical or Mechanical Engineering. Looking for any input or advice from anyone going to UofA or UofC that is doing coop engineering! Thank you!
With people beginning to get accepted for the first wave in all Engineering programs, does anyone know what the admission average will be like for this year? I'm especially interested in Track One, but I only have a 93% average right now. Anyone who's been accepted already, it'll be wonderful if you took the time to quickly go over your average, ECs, personal profile, and obviously to what program please!
Side question, is admission average calculated by the 5 pre reqs, or with the addition to another U/M course?
