not sure if i should apply to the top schools.

i  go to Mary Ward and I have an 81 average currently because my marks dropped because I slacked a bit and rushed to hand in some assignments.
I'm also struggling with math, but I just did a test today and I saw an improvement in myself..
I have until mid February  to raise up my marks.

my current marks are

functions - 70
calculus and vectors - 78
english - 74
religon - 82 
accounting 80 
psychology 100
international business 83 

English used to be a low 80 average
religion used to be a 93 average
international business used to be a 90 average
I believe I can bring my marks up including maths
but I feel like I'm also being too optimistic about math going up.
 The problem I have with math is silly mistakes and not fully grasping a concept and especially not focusing on the small details I usually skim over.

I'm prolly gonna get shitted on here because majority of threads I see of students posting marks are 90s for business.

the schools I want to apply to are Schulich BBA , utsc BBA, maybe queens but I have a  health problems so  Toronto schools I prefer i guess, Ryerson  AFM, york commerce and maybe rotman

If I'm getting too ahead of myself to maybe being able to raise my overall top 6 average to a low 90
should i just apply to ryerson york and guelph or something then?

if you have health problems and that affects your marks, you could consider filling out extenuating circumstances applications (or the equivalent for the unis you want)

Ryerson AFM isn’t a program.

Your average is nowhere near 90+ or even in the high 80s so why in God's name would you ONLY apply to such competitive programs? Obviously, you should be applying to backup programs that you have a decent chance of getting into, otherwise, it is a huge waste of money if you get rejected from every single program that you applied to.

U go to Mary Ward? I went there and tbh, it was a pretty bad school.  I would say to keep track of your time and consult with teachers ASAP.  Tell the teachers about your health issues and explain to them.

I regret coming to Ward.
If I went to a normal high school I think I would have done so much better. Thats what I thought at first.
But its because I don't know how to study properly. If my friends can have mid 90 averages here, so can I but I need to work harder when studying for tests and stop making silly mistakes.
anyways I enjoyed my highschool experience here, everyone is so nice and welcoming its refreshing.

Talking to my teachers about my health problems won't change anything I tried other than extending test authorizations.
