Well I know that Waterloo, Mac, and U of T will be getting your top 6 grade 12 average which includes the pre-reqs (eng, physics, chem, advanced functions, and calc) so do an approx calculation of your final avg and compare them to the admission avg requirements. Waterloo and U of T are looking for mid-80s and Mac is looking for low to mid 80s.

Good luck and hope you get an offer to the uni of your choice! :bom:

For engineering, I would advise you to try and get a higher percentage in physics. That would be good for getting in and doing well in university. I am not sure about other universities, but for Waterloo, the first year physics course for engineering was brutal. The real average was probably around 35%, but was bell-curved to 60+%. The midterm usually gets and average of 40%. You should focus on physics a bit more and try to understand the concepts instead of doing lots and lots of questions.
