Will I be accepted?

A photo of coolshoes coolshoes
I go to a non-semestered school, and my marks right now are:

English- 84
Advanced Functions- 90
Chemistry-90
Biology-90
Band-98
Repertoire-100
French-90
Challenge and Change in Society- 88

My top 6 average is from 90-93, depending on which school I go to.
I applied to McGill, Queens, Western Ontario, Toronto, McMaster, and Waterloo (a lot of schools, i know) for Psychology. I am quite involved with extra-curricular activities and in the community. My marks can change throughout the year, and that's what im worried about.

Do you think I will be accepted to Queen's or McGill, as those are my top choices?

I think you'll get in no problem, based on your grades alone. The fact that you are involved in ECs is a bonus. But it looks like you could have a bright future as a musician :)

Unfortunately, Band and Repertoire are not prerequisites to many university programs. What's "Repertoire" anyway?

@rightsaidfred although band and repertoire aren't prerequisites for most programs, it can still be used in your top 6 marks that the university is going to see. Usually they'll include the mandatory courses like english, advanced functions, and whatever else relates to the program. Then there will be space for your other top marks.

and i don't think you'll have any trouble getting accepted :)
