What subjects do you have in your top six?

A photo of computerengineer computerengineer
I applied to some business schools even though I prefer to go into engineering. SO my top six average is like 89 which includes all the sciences, math and english. Afetr researching on business schools, I saw that their cutoff is really high compared to engineering schools. Why is this? IS it because the sciences are harder subjects than some other ones? If so, what do you guys have in your top six to boost your average?

Got a bunch of different averages as I've applied to business and science programs within Ontario.
The highest one I believe includes: English, Biology, Chemistry, Families, Data, Calculus. These are the courses that will be calculated into my midterms submission for Queen's Commerce.

I think it's because getting 90+ in chem/physics/bio is harder (at least for most people that I've asked) than getting a 90+ in a course like econ/law/morality/etc. For me, my top 6 for business is the same as it is for engineering. English, physics, chemistry, adv functions, calculus, and comp sci. For me, comp sci should be my "mark booster" except it's my lowest mark by far excluding English. :(
