Would private school(during the summer) give me a higher mark in advanced functions?

A photo of Neil01 Neil01
hi guys I'm a grade 11 going into grade 12 next year. I would like to know if taking advanced functions in private school will give me a higher mark. I got 80 in grade 11 functions and therefore I am worried I will not obtain a high mark in grade 12 because i struggle at math. :S
Also im planning on going into Honours BBA Administration at Laurier, which requires a mid-to-high 80's.

Make sure it is a reputable private school...so that there is no suspicion in regards to the quality of the educational standards provided by the institute if you can do this then you should be fine...just go H.A.M

This isn't quite true. I know a few people who paid for their marks at very small and unknown, but licensed institutions and they got into top business schools in Canada.

Neil01, raise the mark by any means, but make sure you know the material otherwise you will (I repeat, you will) suffer in calculus and will suffer even more in university.

Can universities even tell which school you took the course from? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always though that if you take a course in private school it just shows up on your transcript as a regular course code with a different ending...
e.g. ENG 4U1 would become ENG 4UP or something like that

Yes, this information is available to universities and it shows on OUAC.
