no shot at early acceptance, right?

what about that repeated advanced functions (note: it is a pre-req) course? How do you think a repeat will affect my chances?

what are my chances of getting into those schools?

thanks for your help!!

It is hard to determine really where you stand. Your grades are fairly good. However, the repeat on the advanced functions will be frowned upon by some schools. Particularily, University of Toronto and Queens.

I think it would also be worth mentioning that 4U Chemisty and 4U Physics are MUCH more challenging than then 3U level course. You will need to work hard to keep the the same type of grade range.

Find some easy filler courses to boost up your average. Drop one of the sciences to lighten your load.

But I think you should be fine, in that you will get into some of those programs (maybe all!)
