University Acceptances- How many Grade 12 marks they consider.

A photo of 007 007
I have 4 courses this semester but i took Data Management last year (when i was in grade 11)and i didn't do so good. So when universities look at my marks,will they include my Data mark in my average since it is a completed grade 12 course? If they do I'm really screwed for uni since my average is going to drop by a lot.

They might for early acceptance.

+ 1

But for regular admission, they will take your top 6 Grade 12 U or M courses (some include prereqs) so as long as you have 6 other better marks you won't have to use data. But that would bring down your early admission (maybe), but that's not a big deal.

Prereqs are the courses required by the specific program. So for most business programs there is ENG 4U, AF and one other 4U Math. There will often be minimum marks for these, such as Waterloo has a min. of 75 in English. Most programs will include prereqs in the calculation. For early admission, they will take the high-school prereq of the Grade 12 prereq if you don't have the Grade 12 one.

That explain it?
