bc student admission vs. everyone else

I have heard that for students in BC have to only submit their top 4 marks but all I ever hear around here is top 6, top 6, top 6. Also, If I apply to university in Ontario using ouac, Is it still top 4 for us BC students?


A completely unrelated question here but I've heard that getting in to one of UofT's campuses is as easy as getting in to a community college. Does anybody know which campus that is? I think it was St. George but I could be wrong.

Thanks for all the help and feedback

I'm assuming you're from BC? I think when I applied for east coast schools, it was top 5.. definitely not top 6, but I don't think it was top 4 either. Top 6 is only for students applying from Ontario.

As for your other question, UTM (Mississauga) and UTSC (Scarborough) are generally easier to get into, but I don't think UTSG is any harder. What program are you applying for? I got into UTSG with a not-so-high average so I don't think it'll be too hard compared to the other two campuses.

I'm from BC too and its not the top 4. You need 4 approved grade 12 courses. Most of the approved grade 12 courses are the same for universities, but you should still check they're website to make sure that the courses you have are approved.

^ Well yes, I already assumed the OP was referring to provincially examinable courses or whatever you guys call them nowadays since they took out the provincials.
It's different for McGill though.. they allow you to include one course that's not provincially examinable in your top 4 or 5.
