I would say so. If you can keep your top six average above 86%, you should be fine.

Probably (by probbaly I mean I'm 70% sure you'll get in with those marks).

With an 87% (or perhaps higher) final average, you'll get into bio-med for sure, as well as receive an entrance scholarship. The cutoff this year was 85.5%, and i don't see it fluctuating much.

If you're really worried about being too close to the cutoff, apply for science instead, which has a cutoff in the low 80's, and take the bio-med first year courses, which will be available to you. You can do this because, as you may know, you don't declare your program until second year.

westerns entrance average isn't an 81, don't believe it when they say "low 80s" on their admissions cutoff, its actually much more competitive then that. look at this website for all the ontario unis and click on admissions to see the percentage of students and their averages who get in to each program, updated every year :)
