if you do night school and get your adv func to an 80+, and take calc with another 80+. you'll be fine for most. 80 is like the key number. if your prereqs are passed that your good. and you have stuff like IB pulling up ur avg

Advanced Functions is the only thing that is bringing you down. To be honest, I can tell you that anything below an 80% average or so will not get you very far. You are doing pretty well in the other courses helping bring your marks up.

Are Accounting and Business Leadership estimates or courses you took in grade 11?

Take data management because the calculus is really hard. Not to mention, you have to do a mid-term exam which drops many people's average. And taking advance function again will bring you up to 75%+ for sure because advance function second time around is really easy.

Also, if you have a lot of extra circular activities or volunteer hours, make sure to report them. This way the universities will be more lenient towards your mark.

In my opinion you will be able to get into majority of the universities that you have applied to.

Unless you have really high grade 11 marks, you likely will not receive an invite to the AFMAA. No AFMAA, no AFM.

In addition, a competitive average is somewhere between 90 and 94. You would really have to do well in your AF repeat and your data/calc class, and bring some of those other marks up.

As for the others, Laurier BBA requires the highest average of all of them. The cutoff is 86/87, although you can get in if you're within 3% of the cutoff and have a good ABS form. But if you can get into Laurier, you can get into all of the others.

well, i know for sure i can be enrolled in night school..and since its the second time of advanced functions...it will be better. i also heard night school marks are inflated...so it should be up to 80+ but i will be working my butt of for a high mark there.
yeah, ill take data management..not calc. (im considering calc in summer school...4 week course...just to make sure i know a bit of it for uni...should i ?)

@nehalkazim Yeah, i need this 80% average...math is bad...accounting and business leadership are estimates...as ive taken account gr11 last year and did alright....and business leadership is like a bird course..

@redprince thank you so much....i hope your right :/ just gotta be involved..and maintain an 80%+ average...

@g93 Alright, that was expected ..no waterloo but thanks...i hope its laurier i get into...would you need like tons of extra curricular if your average ended up to be like an 83-84%?

would my extra curriculars be enough..should i be involved more?

you should really divert your focus from ECs and focus more on your academics. As is it goes for your question. No, you should not join more clubs. You have a lot now, and if you join more it will be hard for you to manage clubs as well as take time out to study.
Good luck (:
