A photo of Theresa96 Theresa96
Hello, I have apply for Actuarial Science in Waterloo.I have been in Canada for 4 years, so i don't need to have Tofel test.
My Average is 85.33
Mcv:87
MHF:86
Economic:90
International business:94(night school)
Financial security:85
English:70(Dayschool Repeated)
I have took English last year, but only get sixty something, so i repeated it this year,I want to upgrad my mark and improve my English. My school have pretty good reputation and the teacher are marking very hard. There are only a few of students get 80+ in my English class, but i don't want to go to Private school, People said it not teach anythings. will waterloo very care about repeated credit and nightschool credit?
will they deduct my average? Do you think i have a chance get the offer from waterloo?

For engineering, I know they penalize you for any repeat grade 12 courses. Waterloo probably does the same for science too...

I worry about my mark is not enough. Although in the viewbook, it said the admission average is low 80; last year, one of my friend also applied this program, her average is 83, still got rejected. She called to the office, and they tell her that the admission average have change to mid 80.

well that depends. are you applying for the coop program?

my friend who had a low english mark (probably low 70s high 60s) originally applied for coop CS at waterloo, and didnt get the offer - he got CS regular instead. his CS proficiencies were pretty good, he just wasnt a hard worker at all.

I think you'll get accepted though, since Math is less competitive.
