Will Physics 11 matter a lot for UBC admission?

9 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by Lara Winkless
This is my first thread.. Here are my marks before my final exams, which are each worth about 20% - 25%, so they will not greatly affect my final mark.  I'm in my first semester of Grade 11: French - 92% Chemistry - 88% Physics - 85% Social Studies - 90%  I'm just wondering if this means I won't get accepted to UBC. Should I retake Physics 11 in summer school or night school to obtain at least 94%? I know chemistry I understand really well and I'm pretty confident that I will get a high enough mark on the final to get 90%.  What should I do? Can I get in or not because they look at my grade 11 marks right away.

What do you guys suggest I do? Kind of confused about my courses

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC
So basically for university I plan on taking a science course where most require 2 sciences. I took chemistry and biology this year (11) I got a good mark in bio but got a not so good mark in chem (70) with minimal studying/rarely doing homework. I hear that physics is very math-oriented and I got an 86 in functions if that helps. But the thing is I can't take grade 11 physics this semester now (full+it's too late) and I plan on taking gr 12 in English in summer school so what do you think I should do to get grade 11+12 physics in before university? Or is it even right for me or should I just stick with chem or take both? If I decide to take the MCAT, there's physics on it too.

Hi 

I applied to a university that requests self reported grades. In a recent e-mail they told me to self report "to determine [my] admissibility". 

Does this mean they will determine admission based on my self reported grades?

Admission Questions? Ask a Current UBC Student!

338 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by Maya Goss
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!
