Don't be Fooled!

A photo of Nitrous Nitrous
A lot of universities require you to TAKE certain courses in high school, but they don't specify if those marks need to be included in the TOP 6

Could someone inform me regarding this topic on universities such as Queens, Mac, UoFT (St. George, Mississauga) Western and Laurier! Thanks

I asked my guidance counsellor this.
She said that if it's a required credit, then they calculate it as part of your top 6.

i am wondering about this as well, because on the Ouac site, for example Laurier; it says "NOTE: Required Courses used in admission average." and others like Mac or Brock do not say say that, does anyone know or have any ideas of specifics of which ones do and dont? any help would be greatly appreciated

If a school has listed certain courses as REQUIRED then it is guaranteed those marks will be included in your top 6.

Queen's Commerce Requirements (Ontario only):

You must take 4U Calculus, another 4U Math, and a 4U English. These will all be a part of your top six. Also, your top six cannot contain more than two M courses.

Hope that helps. I'm not sure about out of province requirements, but if a course is required it will generally be counted in your top six.
