U vs. M courses

A photo of KingSpades KingSpades
Next year when I apply to universities I am planning on sending in four U level courses and two M level courses. Obviously U level courses are more challenging but do universities really care? Would I be better off taking all U level courses?

I honestly don't think they care. In most requirements it says U or M. So either is fine as long it isn't C.

I can't think of any instances when a course is offered at both U and M levels (other than grade 11 math). Thus, how many M courses you have will depend on your interests, not on your academic capabilities. Universities, I'm sure, are well aware of this.

Take whatever interests you (though make sure to take at least four U courses).

They don't care as long as it's not a required course for your program, so I guess it all depends on what you want to do in university. Research what the requirements for programs you're interested in are and take those courses. Or just take courses that interest you.

Take a combination of what interests you, what is required for your program, and maybe you want to challenge yourself a little.

Depends on the school/program.

I took all U and AP courses except accounting but that's just me.
