Will universities (in Canada and outside Canada) look at my grade 9 marks?

2 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hey guys! Ok well, I haven't completed grade 9 yet but I was wondering if universities would count my grade 9 marks. My average percentage is 95% so far, but I'm scared that won't be enough for UBC -- Science BSC.

Thanks in advance!

Hi I think we're all here in the waiting game excited to hear back from McGill Uni and other schools we've applied to. I'm looking to get into their Life Sciences program...

If you get an offer, please be so kinda as to letting us know when you received an offer, for what program and your percentage.

This way, we can all go through this process together so best of luck! I hope everyone gets in :) And for those who got in, congrats!!

Thanks!!

English
Calc. & Vectors
Adv. Functions

But i need help choosing the rest. I am currently in ICT SHSM and I was wondering if its possible to do Co-Op in the summer, and if so, what are the chances that I would get accepted and how it would work out if i took it with the TDSB (or another district?)? I was also planning to do a course in summer school so I may have 1 another space on my timetable and i was deciding between Comp. Science, Challenge and Change, Philosophy or a spare for the last choice? ANY SUPPORTIVE FEEDBACK would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance and have a great day!

UW, UofT, Rye Eng

so I applied to mostly life sci (and 3 eng programs), but now i realize i probably want to do engineering, I have already applied to UW biomed eng, UofT electrical eng, and Rye biomed eng (accepted), and my grades are only mid 80s.. can bring up to high 80s (english bringing me down a LOT). Sciences and maths are 90s, but I derped my chem exam.

My chances seem really, really low for UW and UT, but I hear bad things about Ryerson.. how are they? and is their Internship program any good? I heard only 20% or so of their students get an internship? and how are internships for biomed students specifically?
I'd rather stay in Toronto, unless I go to some spectacular program (such as UW).

First Year BMOS Courses For Ivey School of Business

18 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hey everyone, I have yet gone to my SAO at Western University and was wondering what courses are you guys taking for your first year. I received AEO Status and I also want to know which courses would help me reach Ivey. 

So far I am very interested in Economics 1021 A/B but I don't know what other courses I should take. I also heard about Business 1220 as a good preparation for Ivey.

So overall, I need to take 10.0 courses. 3.0 of those courses are mandatory, such as MOS 1021 and 1023. 1.0 course from a numbered 1000-1999. Also, 1/0 course from Calculus 1000 etc. Another question brings to mind, so I need to take 2 math courses? As each math course is 0.5 credits?

So I am taking MOS, Calc, Economics, what else?

Thanks alot!

Chances of UBC Acceptance (Gen. Science)

9 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi guys,

So, just recently, I've begun stressing over my chances of being accepted into my preferred choice (general science) at UBC. I have been reading a lot of threads and there have been a variety of responses. Some getting in with low 90s, other not getting in. Some saying they had excellent PP's yet were denied. I know that not everyone can be trusted but I would like to hear what you think are my chances of getting in.

Grade 11 Marks:
Bio 11 -94%
Chem 11 (honours) - 96%
Physics 11 - 91%
English 11 - 92%
Pre-Calculus 11 Honours - 90%
Socials Studies - 93%

Grade 12 Marks
Biology - 95%
Chemistry - 95%
Calculus 12 - 95%
English 12 - 90%
AP Calculus - 93%
AP Chemistry - 94%

EC's include Captain and MVP of two different sports team at school, founder and coach of my own basketball association, tutoring all grades other than grade 12, main member of a club that specializes in making sure everyone in school is treated with respect, kindness etc. and grad council in which I create event, create proposals for teachers to decide on the event, and run events for the entire graduating class.

Any feedback would be great,
Thank You!

Admission Questions? Ask a Current UBC Student!

323 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Jane C
Hi guys,

I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay.  Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.

You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.

Hope to see you all at UBC in September!

Deferred to UTM from UTSG Life Sci

Anonymous
3 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Murray Alatassi
Hey guys,  I applied to life sci at UTSG but found out that I was deferred. I'm honestly really confused because I have an average of 94%... however, my calculus mark (which is a prereq) is 73%. The 94% includes my calc mark. Could this be the reason why I was deferred?

At my school, calc is exceptionally difficult. All of my other marks since grade 8 are high. To me, it just feels like a misunderstanding.

Is there anything I could do to get reconsidered?


Thank you

Calculus 12 IP
Does anyone have any idea of when will Computer Science acceptance be released?
In addition, if Calculus 12 mark is not available now, will it cause delay of admission decisions?

I initially applied for UTM Commerce (I got Rotman Commerce and UTM Commerce mixed up) and was alternately admitted to UTM Management. I did some research and couldn't find much info on it - it seems like it's not a very well-known program.

Does anyone have any thoughts/opinions/experiences they can share regarding this program? I'm a BC student also applying to UBC, SFU, McGill, and Queen's for commerce/management programs.
