Concerns with Waterloo's conditional acceptance.

I received my Waterloo conditional acceptance back in February, which asks to maintain a minimum of 70 in my mandatory credits. Now, I'm in the IB program, so our final marks are announced in July, and is heavily reliant on our final IB exams (up to an exam being worth 70% of our final mark). However, our predicted marks were sent in around mid-May, and for these marks, I was well above the conditions. However, if I were to do poorly on the final exams, is it possible for me to lose my acceptance in July? since the final date for University acceptances is on June 1. If not will they just look at my predicted grades as a final?

Would be nice if I could alleviate some stress.
*Note: this isn't because I'm planning on slacking, it's just that I'm starting to feel sick, and I probably won't be able to focus on my exams once I do become sick."

I think they re-evaluate you at the end of the semester to see if you still meet the conditions.

They do look at your finals in July to make sure you meet conditions. All you need is a 4 or 5 to pass, so just keep studying. I'm worried for my English/Math exams (next week, aah!) but I'm leaving myself some room to slack for the others :p

Thanks! I'm worried about English, whether or not my brain will click for papers 1 and 2. Gl on your exams. :P
