Hi.. Im in 12th grade... I had a an 10th grade average %age of 96.6 and an average 11th grade percentage of 90.8... How much should I aim to get this year if I want to land up in U of A or U of T with maximum scholarships in Engineering or Applied Engineering Sciences... I am a Canadian citizen living abroad...

I think you should keep atleast above 90% for U of T and as far as i know U of A requires 80% to 85% or more. Hope that helped! Good luck in you studies :)

For maximum scholarships? I went to U of A for engineering and received $50,000 in scholarships throughout my undergrad. I had a 95% average throughout high school (grades 10, 11 and 12) and extensive community involvement and was a varsity athlete throughout university. $32,000 of that money came from the U of A itself, mostly academic scholarships based on grades, but a few based on leadership and community involvement. $15,000 came from the Alberta government, all automatic scholarships based on getting a certain grade/GPA or being a varsity athlete. The rest came from external scholarships based on grades/ECs.

So you want to be getting at least a 95% average in grade 12. ECs are helpful too

The U of A just came to my school and said that depending on the program you should try to have at least a 80% average. If you were able to maintain the average you are at in the 90% you have nothing worry about. You can actually apply early in November for the U of A.

Thanks a lot.. That was really helpful.. But what Im worried about is that if my 12th and my 10th grades are above 95 and my 11th was not.. Do I stand to lose scholarship?

I think they said to apply even if you're close, although your grade 11 is far off 95%. The 95% for all 3 years is only for scholastic distinction awards, you can still get academic excellence
