You should note that U of T "reserves the right" to use your original mark in a course for admission decisions, so if your original physics mark was brutal, that may hurt you. Here are admission averages: http://www.utoronto.ca/about-uoft/measuring-our-performance/cudo/cudo_2008/Admission.htm (Looks like 87% is perfectly acceptable.)

I wish I could.. but our school wont allow for retake during 2nd semester. I noticed many ontario schools require a minimum of 70 in english, but has there ever been any exceptions??

Retake it online or at night school.
I'm not too sure about the exceptions.. you should ask your counsellor about that.

I'm not too sure what to do in your situation...
1) You could just do your best and try to improve that english mark.
2) Drop before full disclosure date and retake it in summer school.

Otherwise your marks are fine.
You could probably get into the majority of universities but the English mark is the only one im skeptical about.

Ask the schools if you can take IELTS/TOEFL or the english test they have(I know UofT has it's own english proficiency test)

Thanks for the advices guys. I recently found a website in regards to UofTs english requirements. A friend just gave me a website that shows the minimum line for English is actually 60% (http://www.discover.engineering.utoronto.ca/admissions/requirements/canadian.htm) Is this website reliable? Does this mean I can just go ahead and submit my marks?

I didn't go on it but just from looking at the URL, looks like a direct link from the U of T website, so it should be reliable.

Look at the 2010 CUDO Data for UofT(B3 - Secondary School Averages of Full-Time, First Year Students), the Overall Average for Engineering was 89.6%. However, 46.5% of people admitted had less than or equal to an 89% average.

Your English is going to hurt you. Most schools require you have your overall average above a certain mark, but then they also say that English must be above a certain mark as well.

E.g. "You must maintain an average of 75% and recieve a mark of no less than 70% in ENG4U" or whatever English course you happen to be taking.

My advice would be to upgrade your English to at least a low to mid 80.

I know quite a number of undergrad engineers in UofT. One of them got into Materials(or Civil, can't remember) engineering two years ago with a 69% in ENG4U.

I think that source is reliable. But still you can't trust it 100% since there might be an increased amount of people applying to your program this year, and a <70% in Eng4U will definitely hurt your chances of getting an offer.

honestly i think you are only good for mac engineering, sorry..
you have to bring that english mark up, and the fact that you took phys 12 again hurt your chances hard imo.
best of luck bro!

Yeah i agree with apark17. I know waterloo requires a min of 75% english.
as for u ofT, you stil have a chance but most people who apply to engineering probably have higher than a 70%.
