PSE for science programs?

A photo of Leesh1993 Leesh1993
I know that University of Toronto and UBC has PSE. Are PSE optional? and what's the advantage of writing it? I'm about 5% over the admission standard, so..should I write it? Many people are talking about it but I really don't want to write it.
p.s- anybody know if McGill has PSE? from BC btw

It depends on the university. Some make it mandatory, while others make it optional.
I know that UBC has a supplemental for Science, but it is optional..
Even if you're 5% over the average, it doesn't hurt to complete the supplemental, only makes your application stronger.
I'm from BC too and applied to science, but I haven't applied to McGill so I'm not sure about them.
U of T doesn't have an additional supplemental, but they do have one for admissions awards, you should have received an e-mail from them a few weeks ago.

It's not going to kill you to write it, either way. I've done mine, and I'm above the cutoff for UBC by a few percent.

You don't have to write a PSE for McGill, it's based solely on marks
