UTSG questions

A photo of ForeverPi ForeverPi
i'm planning to go into life science at either UTSG or waterloo and on UTSG's website, it says that grade 12 physics is recommended. But i've heard that if you don't take grade 12 physics, then you'll have to take it in university anyways. is this true?

another question, on UTSG's website for entrance scholarships, it says that students who are eligible for the +$2000 must have all of the required courses to be at least at an "A" standing? what is considered an "A" standing at UTSG? +80%? +85%?

The $2000 is for 92+ actually. The President's Scholarship I think it is called?

Yes I know. But they also said that the required subjects must be at least at an "A" standing and I don't know what they consider an "A". Here's a quote from the UofT website


If you are a domestic student studying at a Canadian secondary school or Year 1 of CEGEP, and your admission average is 92 percent or better, and you have completed each of the subjects required with at least 'A' standing, the University of Toronto guarantees you entrance scholarship(s) totalling at least $2,000 if you enroll in first year at U of T.

An "A" would be I think 85+... I'm not too sure.
And about the physics thing. Physics is a RECOMMENDED subject, so you can still apply for life sciences without having done any physics courses. But b/c it's a recommended (they say that because of the "thinking" that ppl partake when they study it or do problems etc) ... I THNIK it might be a factor they consider when comparing candidates. Anyway, for 1st year life science students, yes, you will do a full year physics course, I suggest you do take physics because going in without any ... might be a problem.

A = 85. And no u don't need physics but some specialist/major/minors need them. such as LMP :D

They look at your grade 11 marks significantly for those scholarships. And probably English.

Most of the specializations I'm interested in need physics at some point, but none of the majors/minors did, if that helps.

A = 85, but A- = 80 so it might be 80+... not totally sure on that.
