Concerns about University Acceptance

A photo of Ayonic Ayonic
Hello,

I am planning on applying to University of Guelph for their
Biological and Medical Physics and Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
Also I am planning on applying to University of Waterloo for their
Life Science program.

What my question is that University of Guelph is looking for an overall average of 70% indicated on their site https://admission.uoguelph.ca/template.aspx?SiteID=2aec718a-98f1-4c71-b2f7-bda7f1700aaa. As for Waterloo they are also looking for an overall average of 70% indicated on their site http://www.findoutmore.uwaterloo.ca/programs/Life%20Sciences. What I am worried about is getting in. My overall average as of now is 80%, and I'm hoping to boost it to at least 84-85% by the end of semester one.
I am getting a 81 in Advanced Functions and English, 79 in Physics and Chemistry.

Any word of advice or assurance as to whether or not I will get accepted to either one of those Universities?
I am planning on getting at least 85 on my 2 other remainder courses (Bio and Calculus) in semester 2.

Can I safely say I got myself a guarantee spot at either of the Universities?


Thanks in advance.

Sorry for trolling.

For Guelph biological science, yes a 80 will get you in, basically period from what I've heard, I believe the others hover around 82-84 average admission average - but when they say: minimum admission average, that's not what marks people get in with, that's saying: we will outright reject you with a below 70 average. Get you grades to 84 or 85 not that hard if your at a 80 since if your in a 2 term 4 class like me, right now they have like 40% of your mark, so you have like another half and then exams and CPTs.

I guess you want to be a pharma, so why not try to get 86-88 average, and try and get into biomed at guelph =D (trololol) GL

Electronic info should have the admissions averages for last year which would be great info to look into, extra curriculars , contests and anything else to make you stand out should be great, 10% above what they ask for average wise should be fine.

Unfortunately, electronic info doesn't have any information for the two courses I am interested in for Guelph.
