Your marks are definitely not terrible, you have a good shot of getting into life sci.

The McMaster University website (http://registrar.mcmaster.ca/forms/canad.php) says they predict an admission range of mid to high 80s, which you will likely achieve, so don't worry too much about it. Also Universities are often looking at qualities other than grades, so if you get good teacher references and think of any clubs and volunteer experience that you have, that will improve your chances of being accepted.
If you really want to get in, I'm sure it will happen for you.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for your encouraging post, I don't have any significant extracurricular activities other than some unimportant clubs. I have about 150 hours of volunteer service, I guess that could be helpful

Your marks are great.
you only need an 80, and so far you've had nothing lower!
plus that is quite a lot of volunteer hours.
I'm sure you'll have absolutely no problem :)
good luck!

I've read the cut off range this year was mid-high eighties, was this changed to 80?

I Think you got a pretty good chance... If anything aim to get it to the 88% range.

With all those volunteer hours, I am sure you have a good chance! Maybe, if you are still worried about your marks, you could find ways to do more studying and homework. I have always wanted to have a study party and my teacher said that if you pretend to yourself that you really like the subject you absorb more and therefore learn more. If you do happen to have a study party- or anyone who has, do they work well? Do you actually get studying done in a fun way?
