"In addition to the specific information requested in all of the AIF Questions,please tell us anything else about yourself that you would like to know when we review your application."
My fellow applicants,how did you answer this? I mean what sort of a content do they expect in the answer? Should we write about our EC's or what???
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Exactly what it says. Anything that you think would be relevant to your application that the form didn't ask for, you write there.

For instance, maybe you had involvement in your school's (hypothetical) robotics club. It doesn't give a place to say that you were the captain of the club that led it to a national competition and won. So you'd write that.

I actually thought that whole page was only for special circumstances and stuff, things or events that have affected your studies or extra-curricular involvement or that have obstructed you from achieving your full potential? There's a section on the first page for additional information on extra-curriculars such as being captain of something.

Anyone want to clear this up so I don't just leave Part B blank? :3
Thanks!

That area is normally used for special circumstances, but it can be used for anything. Do not feel obligated to fill it out, especially not when you can add the information to other areas. If you really have a lot of extra stuff, for example a lot of work experience or a portfolio, you can always send supporting documentation, such as a resume, separately, to be attached to your application. Just email admissions.

thanks everyone.
Also just another question(I don't want to start another topic), if there's anyone here who has taken IELTS, do you know whether the university of toronto accepts paper results?I mean paper results sent by the testing agency itself.There's a small problem about it in the "international students",if someone could clarify it I would be grateful.
