Contact: elizabethsflower@gmail.com 

In second year at UBC as a Health Science (FNH) student from LFS. 

Want to know how I got in? What UBC life is like? General advice about gr. 12/senior year, study tips, and applying to universities? I'll try my best to answer any of your inquiries (:

See you at UBC in September!

I really don't mind if I get waitlisted, but my first choice is UBC science at Vancouver and my second choice is UBC science at Okanagan
My top 4:
Physics 12: 90
Pre-Calculus 12: 89
Law 12: 93
English 12: 85
(Term 1) I know UBC looks at term 2 and I hope to get my average to at least 91% for term 2 and 3. 
My ECs are decent??? I have volunteering at Canadian Blood Services, Kick Boxing since I was 11 and still ongoing (I also help instruct classes as well), Job Shadowing at a dental office, volunteering for community parades and at the local temple.

Hey, I’m currently an SFU student thinking about transferring to UBC arts. My grades are fair at SFU(tbh not that good which I think is not competitive enough at all) but I’ve heard SFU grading system is stricter, and I still want to try transferring to UBC. I was wondering how high should the grades are they looking for? How competitive for the faculty of Arts is?

If I have a 92% average for both grades 11 and 12, as well as a very strong PP with good ECs, do you think that I am likely to get into UBCO's direct entry using program? Does anyone know what the admissions average was last year?

How does UBC calculate admissions average for Ontario students?

Also, I have IB certificate and AP courses. Will this change the way my average is calculated?
