Someone HELP ! I am so confused with the self reporting.

Anonymous

Here's what UBC says about uploading your marks: 
"If you have second-semester courses in progress, report the course names and leave the grade fields blank. If there is no grade on your report card, do not predict one." 

This means they will only look at my 1st semester marks on my report card and not see the marks on my interim which I am getting in a few days !!! 
The problem is that my second semester grades are substantially better than my first, and I have no chance with my first semester grades. Does this mean UBC will decide admission by only looking at my first semester grades on my first term report card?? 
This just seems unfair because I worked so hard in the second semester thinking that I could up my second semester grades for self reporting in March. If you had half of the required grades in the second semester they won't look at them and decide admission? Someone please help. I'm stressing out.

Chances of getting into Ryerson Journalism??

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC
Hi!!! :)   

English - 74% (redoing this semester)  
Tech Design (CyberArts) - 80% 
Art (CyberArts) - 84%  Literature - 80%   

Midterms are about to come out, so I have a good idea of what my marks will be:   
English - 90%  
Law - 87%  
Business - 80%  
Writers Craft - 85%   

Binded Portfolio:  
Essay: Charlie Hebdo Paris  
4 school newspaper articles 
1 FIT precollege blog article  
1 photojournalism spread for my school yearbook (probably should not have included this)   

Max was 6 pieces so I stopped there   
none of these articles were really "reporting" on news either, they were just general articles. like i wrote one on "the art of decision making". is this a problem 

 I feel super crappy because on the life and journalistic experience page, I didnt distinguish between the two, so I basically just wrote them in the same list (will admissions hate me?)  I write in cursive too so it might have looked slightly overwhelming lol  again, will they hate me???   

- head editor of school newspaper 
- wrote for fit precollege summer blog 
- involved in a gifted arts program (cyber arts)  
- executive photographer for the orbit (yearbook at my school)  
- involved in ambassadors club (where you help organize and plan school events)  - do the announcements every Tuesday 
- travel to new york quite often because my dad resides there  
- worked for a youth association for academics character development and sports  
- run a fashion blog  .... and i cant really remember anything else but i did write a little more!!! if only we got it back D:   

PLS HELP!!! im a heap of nervous energy right now and i need a little bit of insight

self reporting???

Anonymous
2 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
So I recently applied to a bunch of schools (KPI,UVIC,UBC,SFU) and as you all know self reporting is coming up real fast!

I attend a semester school, so we're literally barley one month in our classes and my marks are kind of meh because of the fact the few assignments we did are worth a huge chunk of our mark.

I really want to get into Beedie, and as you guys know their self reporting is due next week. So far I'm sitting with an 80 in eng12, precal12 and probably somewhere similar/higher for geog12. I may or may not be using the term being petrified as a hyperbole to describe how I'm feeling right now because an 80 is pretty low, but my dilemma is I know for a fact I can do SO much better as time progresses (always happens, starts off meh, ends off good)

So my question is, will they reject me based off of my self reporting mark in which I KNOW I can eventually bring up? 

my grades so far

sem 1
dance - 97
yearbook - 95
history - 91
peer tutoring - 90

sem 2
geog - 80~90??
precal - 80
eng - 80
yearbook - 95 (but this class is irreverent so w/e lol)

and my EC's are decent i think, i volunteered for Scouts Canada for a year, apart of IDEAS36 (leadership conference), a member of the Surrey Student Council, danced for five years and formed my own club.

Okay so i am going to take international business and i would like to know if it is a difficult course to take online or not?

Also i am taking ENG 4U1 to upgrade my mark, and i was wondering if anybody has taken it before ? 

I really just want to  know peoples experiences with virtual high school? Any good or bad aspects that i should know about?

Do you think it will be worth the 500$? or like 1000$ eventually if i want to upgrade?
I mean is there a cheaper way i don't know about, because i am not rich....
