I'm currently going into grade 12 and I really want to go to UBC after high school for science. I did pretty badly with grade 12 English in summer school and ended up with an 83. To get into UBC Science, what does my overall grade 12 average have to be?! Also, do they look at grade 11 marks?

As long as your top 4 average is above 92% then you will be able to get in. English mark is only there to determine whether you need LPI or not.

Your Top 4 would just be your 4 best marks with English, as long as the course is accepted by the school.

Sorry I just checked UBC website for Ontario schools and apparently UBC still looks at your top 6 if you are from Ontario instead of the top 4 for BC schools (I thought you were from BC).
