What are my chances for Engineering at Waterloo or UofT?

What are my chances of getting into computer engineering or mechanical engineering at either Waterloo or UofT strictly based on marks?

This semester:
Functions (Advanced Placement): 90
Physics (Advanced Placement) :80
Chem (Advanced Placement: 85

Next semester:
Calculus (Advanced Placement):I can get around 90
English: I can get around 90
Exercise Science: I can also get around a 90

Do any of these universities bump up your average slightly if you are part of the AP program?

If you're in IB (I assume that's what "Advanced Placement") means, and you're getting an 80 in physics, you're better off getting a 90 in regular class in terms of chances of getting in.

That being said, your marks (with the exception of physics) are decent enough to get into Waterloo

^ IB and AP, though similar, are different programs. I don't think universities bump up your average for either but they will probably consider that you've taken an enriched program.
