McGill LifeSci Applicant

I have a question about the McGill prerequisite that says 4U English or French. My French final was 87% and my current English mark is 79%. I was wondering if I only have to use the French in my top 6 calculation. My top 6 marks, with prerequisites Biology and Chemistry (I omitted physics) added in:

Current Top 6 with French: 90.6%
Current Top 6 with English: 89.3%

I'm trying to raise my top 6 to at least 92%, but I was mostly wondering if I can just use French and not English.

You have to use the language that the whole school is taught in. So if you're in a normal, English-speaking school where most of the courses are taught in English, than you would use your 4U English mark. If your school teaches mostly in French, you'd use 4U French

omg im in a similar situation! I really hope that we'll still get in with a 90.8% average but im counting on my second semester midterm mark to bring it up to a 91.5 which is the cutoff
did anyone get accpeted already to McGill biomed with a 91.5 average?
