Only 6 subjects..

Hey guys I was wondering if universities care if I've completed only 6 courses as opposed to more..

Nope. The only way it can hurt you is if a non-prerequisite course has a low mark and it's used to calculate your top 6 average.

It might be hard to get your high school diploma with only 6 courses...

I need 30 credits to gradute, with 6 grade 12 courses I'd have a total of 32 ^so I'm good

Wait so let me get this straight if I take a 7th subject (and it's not part of my top 6), it doesn't matter what mark I get in it? Like it wouldn't matter even if it were a 90 or 60?

Well maybe that "7th subject" gives you a 90. And it's higher than one of your original 6 subjects...then that 90 would be counted in your "top 6". So yes, it does help to take a 7th or 8th course because then you get more chances to get high marks. But you also have to think about the added workload, and how many pre requisites there are. In most business programs there's 2-3 pre requisites (english + 1/2 maths). Then they look at your next 3/4 highest marks. So it makes sense to try and take as many courses to get the highest 3/4 marks you can get. But again, workload lol
