Mcgill admission

A photo of dhy02041 dhy02041
I'm a grade 11 student from BC . I'm aiming for Mcgill life sciences next year , but im not sure if my marks are good enough.

What I got in grade 11 courses are:

Math 11 - 88%
Chemistry 11 - 97%
Biology 11 - 86%
English 11 - 85% , still in progress
Physics 11 - 100% , still in progress
Accounting 11 - 96%, still in progress
Social Studies 11 - 75% ( Yes I did really bad on this course)

Grade 12 courses i took :

Math 12 - 91% ( kinda low , but yeah i don't think retaking would do any better)
Calculus 12 - 94% , currently taking

Are my grade 11 marks eligible for early admission if i get high-90s ( i'm expecting 97-ish on all three sciences)in grade 12? I heard that Mcgill looks at grade 11 grades only for early admissions.

One of grade 12 I know got accepted to Mcgill Life sciences couple days ago + entrance scholarship , but she was one of the top students in our school so no wonder :/

I have korean 12 as my language course , but I haven't take the grade 11 language course. Is it okay since i have grade 12 language or do I need to take another grade 11 course ?

And also , I'm planning on taking English 12 online . What does Mcgill think about people taking online courses? Would it affect me from getting accepted ? I'm getting really worried these days , since I only have a year left ..... If my marks aren't good enough for Mcgill , would it be good enough for UWO ,Mac Life Sci or UT?

heyy im a grade 12 student in BC and just got their early admission today~
im not so sure about how mcgill decides their early admissions, but i can tell you mine if this would help you in any ways.
math 11=97
chem 11=95
eng 11=83
phys 11=98
socials 11=86
fr 11=93

and grade 12+ap classes
eng 12=88
math 12=95
phys 12=96
chem 12=88 (retaking this right now, mcgill averages ur first take and retake)
bio 12=98(yea i didnt take bio11)
fr 12=99
chem ap=83
calc ap=91

im not even sure if mcgill looks at ur gr11 classes at all... cuz if they did then, to be honest, i dont think my gr11 top five averages are as high as my gr12 ones. but i think as long as u have good gr12 grades, ur fine =D

for ur other question, yes, it is fine even if you dont have the grade 11 class. cuz i didnt take bio 11 and i was worried, i sent mcgill an email asking them if this is ok, and they said yes, they will look at ur gr12 mark even if u did not take the gr11 class.

for the online class.. yes i am worried too. i took my fr 12 online, and i have not asked mcgill if they will accept online classes or not. but since i got the early admission, im guessing that onlines are ok. my school counselor told me thay as long as ur online mark appears on ur official transcript, mcgill should be fine with it.


the best luck to u next year!

That really is an impressive average you have there.. Congratulations on your acceptance! Which major did you apply to? Can AP courses be included in the Top 5??

Thank you~
i applied for life sc and biomed. yes, according to my counselor, as long as the calsses are on ur official transcript, the universities should be able to use them. All my ap classes are on my transcript, so i assume they can be included in the top5.
