High school grades are inflated. Who gives a ass because most people's averages will drop by 20% in university.

High school grades mean absolutely nothing in the long run. With the exception of very few select programs, you can get into most university programs with 80 averages.

You only really need 95 for Waterloo/ U of T engineering/ comp sci programs and Waterloo/ Laurier double degree.

I can attest to the fact that your marks will drop by up to 20% in University. Don't be upset if it does. Crying will not help. Just pull your weight and balance it off by getting better marks in future tests/quizzes/labs/assignments. Every  honor roll student I know from higschool threw a tantrum when they got their first midterms back. 

However, it may be the opposite. I wasn't an A+ student in higschool. I barely got into University with a low 70 average. But I am in my 2nd year and currently I have a 3.4 cGPA (out of 4).

I did better in university than almost everyone who came in with 90+ averages (I was around a mid-80 high school student in most courses).

A lot of people on this website lie, because it's anonymous. 
Some lie about how high their marks are,
Others, with lower marks, pretend to be in university and say that "they got 70s in high school but now have perfect 4.0GPAs in university!!!!!"
This website can be a little helpful, but don't think people won't lie about themselves.

Also, most people who use this website are typically more studious than your average student.
