well, if i'm not mistaken, i'm kinda sure engineering requires your AF mark as well... so since i have no idea about that I'm not completely sure. Anyways, without your AF, your mark is 82.8. I'm going to base my opinion based on that mark. I believe that Mcmaster will likely take you in late may... You'll be around one of the last ones to be accepted with that mark. Good luck anyways.

For most uni's it does however for McMaster you its not compulsory to have AF in your top 6 just English, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus, along with 2 optional courses.

If you can get up to an 83-84 top 6 you'll be pretty safe I think. I was admitted with only 1 pre-req at 85%.

An 82.8 - 83 is cutting it pretty close, its definitely possible but far from guaranteed.

ok i understand butthere is a link from the Mcmaster University website (http://www.mcmaster.ca/avpira/cudo/20092010/20092010B.html) and if you go down, it shows you the percetages that got into engineering for the year 2009. My question is that is this for just engineering 1? and has macmaster increased their cut off over the years?
