Do I need Calculus for Ryerson University?

A photo of JesterS JesterS
I am currently in the 12th grade and am considering in applying for the business program at Ryerson University this winter.

Currently I am taking Data Management full year, and Advanced Functions semestered
(Calculus and Vectors is semestered and starts in January)

My current grade for Advanced Functions is 64% and I am still struggling a bit.
I have a choice to drop Calculus and transfer into the full year Advanced Functions Course, and not take Calculus and Vectors.

So, my questions are:
1. Is Calculus and Vectors a requirement to get into the business program (no specific program) at Ryerson University?

2. If I do not take Calculus and Vectors, will I have a less chance of getting in?
(I am doing fine in the other courses)

3. Would it be a good choice to drop Calculus and Vectors to transfer into the full year Advanced Functions class
(and perhaps get a better average by doing that?)

4. I heard that in first year university, you have to take Calculus anyways (is that true?).
And if so, will I mess up by not taking it this year?

Thank you.

2.No
3.If you are 100% sure you want to go into Ryerson and not U of T or other schools, I think it would be a good choice, less stress :D.
4. That, I don't know :(

What did you mean by "next year admission"?
I am currently in grade 12, and will apply for universities this winter.
Acceptances will be sent to the applicants the summer of 2012.

I am a bit confused. Did you mean the applications for universities in winter 2012?

And in Data, I'm getting at least an 80%.

I'm assuming you are also a business student (hopefully in Ryerson), so I was wondering if it was true that you DO have to take calculus during a first year business program?

No, I am not in business program but my friends are at ryerson! I think its stats, not calculus. It's probably best to wait for a Ryerson student to answer :)
