UBC Self Reporting for Admission Scholarships

A photo of LoganGraham LoganGraham
Currently, my marks average 94.8% -- which is just below the 95% threshold for UBC admission scholarships of the highest tier.

Should I wait a few weeks, then -- as I hit my peak between now and May 2 -- report those grades, which are hopefully 95% or above?

What exactly do they calculate those scholarships on, anyways? Grade 12 courses? Grade 11/12 courses?

They calculate it based on the courses you're applying to their program with. I'm pretty sure the scholarship is based on your overall mark of those four courses.

Well, it depends also on how badly you want an acceptance, and how early you want it.
They start accepting as early as April 20th.. and with an average that high, you are guaranteed a spot pretty much.
What faculty did you apply for?
Unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure you can get at least a 95% average in your pre-req courses.. so your top 4 if you're from BC.. I would just report them now.

They take your top 4 courses, use that as your admission average, and base scholarships off that?

I applied to Sauder (Commerce) and Economics.

If you're from BC, yeah..
Well technically..
It's.. English.. Math.. then your next top 2 provincially examinable courses.. that's your top 4.

SFU isn't your application 4. It's your top 4 provincially examinable. I think UBC does the same, but I'm not sure.

Did I not say that in my previous post? :P

When I was at SFU, I asked them that question. I was told it was your top 4, not necessarily the 4 you need for your program.

I don't think so..
That wouldn't make any sense.
So you're telling me that I could go into Science with no Science courses at all?
If my top 4 was English, French, History and Geography.. I could get into Applied Sci with that? I'd think not.
Maybe you misinterpreted.
Cuz even on the SFU viewbook thing, there's certain pre-reqs that you have to have in your top 4.

No, you can't get into science without using English 12, Math 12, Science 12, Provincially Examinable 12. I asked about the President's Award, and you don't have to use English 12 if you have a higher, provincially examinable mark.

Sorry if this question is being repeated, but if you are offered the President's Entrance Scholarship of $2500 but your average drops to 92-93% at the end of the school year, do you still get the scholarship???

Does anyone happen to know what the cut-off was for this year's President's Entrance Scholarships? My average last semester was a 92.5% and my second semester midterm average is 95.0%. However, I didn't receive any information about a scholarship in my offer of admission, and according to UBC that's where they would have informed me if I'd qualified for one. Is this unusual or have the President's Entrance scholarships gotten very competitive this year?

I heard that you have to have a 95% average in order to quality for the President's scholarship this year =[

So ridiculous. Just last year my friend with a high 80s average got a $1500 scholarship. UBC is getting crazy! Makes me a little nervous since I accepted my offer this week...

Does anyone know how much it is for 95%? I'm currently (barely) above the cutoff.
