Share your grade 12 day-to-day, week-to-week, or month-to-month progress here!

Purpose:

1. Keep the SAF alive.
2. It is important to know where we exactly stand and how we are doing in comparison to our peers and competition.

So...

- Have you lost marks yet? 
- How many perfects did you receive? 
- What mark do you have right now in your courses? [if not given an update, assumption... not necessarily be exact!]
- What're you getting or what did you get in the recent quizzes/tests/assignments?

MARKS MARKS MARKS... AS GRADE 12 PROGRESSES....!!!...

Additional...
- What kinda ECs/volunteering/work are you involved in?
- What are you doing to make your supplementary application stand out?
- How are you dealing with "grade 12" stress?

When I check acceptance for U of T engineering like electrical engineering, Einfo says average needed is 80s. People still stress with 90 average tho, and why is that?

Do people go into Consulting right out of undergrad??

Anonymous

So I've always been confused about this. On employment reports of undergrad schools like Ivey, Mcgill, queens etc, it shows percentage of people that went into consulting. Is this right out of undergrad? or is it long term surveys. 

So my question is do people go into consulting right away or do you need experience first to consult

Destautels Question

For Ontario admission requirements, the perquisites are English and Calc and then they say "80% in English and 85% in top 6 math course". What does this mean exactly? Does it mean Calc must be in your top 6 and you must have over 85? Or can only Adv. Functions be in your top 6 with over 85? Does it have to be both? Confused!!

UW, UofT, Rye Eng

Anonymous
6 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by Lucas Brown
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).

UBC Arts Transfer Fall 2015

Anonymous
5 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi Everyone,

I'm a transfer student currently finishing second year at the moment. I've applied to UBC Arts, and my application status has been saying my file is ready for an evaluation for the past week and a half or so. Has anyone transferring received any word back from UBC Admissions? If so, would you mind sharing your average? :) 

My average is sitting at approximately 77% based on my last 30 credits. Does anyone know what the usual cut off average is? I would also really appreciate any insight as to whether my average will be competitive for a third-year transfer or not? I've heard a lot of mixed claims, with some saying low seventies is all you need.

Thank you everyone!

Would switching schools from grade 11 to grade 12 affect my chances at Ivey/Queens?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC
Hi, I am currently in the eleventh grade and I really want to go go back to my old school for grade 12. However, I would not make the change if this affected my chances for university acceptances. I have a few questions pertaining to the issue. 

1.) Would Ivey or Queens see my transfer from grade 11 to 12 and find me unfit for the program and see that I am not committed? 
2.)I have personally started the Relay For Life event at my new school and its a huge event celebrating life and the end to cancer. I got the idea myself from being a part of it in grade 10 at my first high school. Would I still be able to put that on my essays if I was back at my old school?

Sorry if it's a bit confusing. I just think my old school was a better fit for my academically and socially. Thanks!

Hello fellow prospective Waterloo students!

My name is Bo and I'm a first-year Software Engineering student and Engineering Ambassador at the University of Waterloo. I know many of you are keen to study at Waterloo. I hope this thread will be very useful for you guys. I also started my blog: bo-peng.net/blog to write about my first year experience. I'll also be writing about the University admission process, and specifically for Engineering programs! 

List any questions below! I will try my best to respond to your questions daily.

Just got waitlisted for sciences at UBC... is it all over? (IB)

Anonymous
8 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by ashkan akbari
Hello,

I've had my heart set on UBC for quite a while now, and then just this afternoon I got the news that I was waitlisted on their student portal.

"We have evaluated your application and due to the competitive nature of your program, we are not able to offer you admission. Your application is currently wait-listed. Any changes to your application and wait-list status will be noted here and a final decision will be available to you by June 15th. Please note that a large number of wait-listed candidates do not receive offers of admission, and we encourage you to make alternate plans accordingly."

I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what my chances are of getting accepted, if at all. I'm a IB diploma student with a total predicted mark of 33. My predicted mark breakdown is:
6 - Chemistry SL, Geography HL
5 - Math SL, Spanish SL (final), English Lit. HL
4 - Physics HL (Trying hard to bring this up - is this mark the main cause of me being waitlisted?)
with 2 Predicted marks for TOK & EE. 

Does anyone know of IB students who got accepted with around a 33 predicted? I realise that their website has listed a "recommended" average of 29-32 for admission, and I'd like to think my PP was strong (Good ECs, but who knows, since it's relative scoring). My waitlist message doesn't even say the "Strong candidate", which it appears a lot of others have.

I'm hoping to get in for the second round of acceptances for Laurier BBA, which is based on a combination of your best 6 11/12 U/M courses, of which have to include a minimum of 3 12U/M courses. I've calculated my average and it should be a 88.83%. I know Laurier doesn't round up marks, but do you think I have a chance at getting in for second round??
