Do unis only look at your top six??? I have a 99% average except for 3 other courses which i have a 51% in!!!??? SHOULD I DROP OUT!?!??!

YES MAN! For real we need a FAQ so badly. The amount of times people ask if universities care about private school annoys me so much. yconic people seriously need a FAQ thread/page or something.

Add questions about private school/night school/summer school. 99% OF THE TIME UNIVERSITIES DO NOT CARE UNLESS YOU'RE DOING COMPETITIVE PROGRAMS AT LIKE WATERLOO.

The old student awards forums had faq and information pages that were hundreds of pages long. Some of the information pertaining to admissions averages and supplementaries are outdated, but general advice in relation to careers is the same. I encourage students to first do a simple search of their question before posting, ad-nauseum, the same questions over and over again.

Bottomline is that high school students' averages are rising, but their questions get more ignorant. This forum really isn't doing a good job of what it is intended to do.

^^^ So important! It irks me so much to see people give answers like "do u even consider how much rez costs" when all the person is trying to figure out is what campus life/residence is like, experience wise. Answer what is being asked, and don't input your opinion when no one really wants it, please and thank you!
