So im in grade 12, applied for Mac general Engineering, Ryerson Aerospace Eng and Carleton Aerospace Eng. My marks are as follows:

English - 84
Advanced Functions - 89
Calculus - 91 (religiously busted my ass practicing before the semester began)
Business Leadership - 86
Chemistry - yet to take

Physics. Oh physics... I decided to fast track that in a semester in grade 11 (fast track grade 12 physics), did poorly (lack of concentration) AND got a concussion. I finished with a 43 LOL (I couldve pulled my mark up but I was in bed half brain dead). But then I took it again this semester and got a 70. Was at an 81 but bombed an ISU and exam (sort of, keep reading). I swear Im less dumb than it sounds. So anyway, I "technically" did a REPEAT of GRADE 12 PHYSICS and got a 70 on my REPEAT... Should I do it again? Buy the credit for a 90 privately? Leave it as such? Perhaps hang myself? (No I won't but you know what I mean). I am scared shitless. 

A funny story, this was my exam marks:
INQUIRY - 19/20 (1 QUESTION that covers all units with 2 parts)
K/U - 14/30 multiple choice was the death of me

Requirement for Ryerson accounting
Hi, I applied to Ryerson accounting a few months back and I was wondering if there are any prerequisite requirements? In my application portal for Ryerson there's a link that takes me to the list of programs that the university offers and I clicked on accounting to double check and all it says is that I maintain an 80-84% + average. There's no mention of any prerequisite grade  requirements, however, when I did a Google search I found a 'future students' page from the Ryerson Uni website and it states that I need a 75% minimum grade in English,calculus,and advanced functions and as an overall average to be considered for their accounting program. So, do they just look at your overall average or prerequisites as well? The reason I'm asking is because I scored 5% below the required grade for advanced functions...am I completely screwed?
I'm looking for scholarships I can apply for involving community volunteering & involvement, student council, or Mayor's Youth Advisory Committee. Any recommendations? Thanks!

First year Med Sci student, happy to answer questions!
Hi, I am currently attending University of Western Ontario for the Medical Sciences Program.
I am happy to answer any questions that anyone may have about the program, course load, and overall experience at Western! 

A bit about myself:
I attended a high school within Ontario and received my acceptance to Med Sci in January (or early February?). I was also accepted to multiple science programs from other universities including, but not limited to: U of T, Waterloo, York, McMaster, Queen's, Ryerson, and Guelph. 

Post questions down below and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible! 
Ryerson Biomedical Science
Did anyone apply for biomedical science at Ryerson and york  ? 
 if you did ... with what average u guys applied???? 
Biochemistry at York
          I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.

Thanks to anyone that helps :)

Economics exam tomorrow... should I go?
It's an extra course basically. I don't need it. 

Should I just not study for it and not do it. Because universities only look at your top 6 marks right?

Queen’s Engineering Admissions / Application Averages
I know there’s a ton of posts out there discussing admissions averages, and I was curious to see how the marks stacked up for everyone trying to gain admission to Queen's Engineering. 

For Queen’s, my top five marks average out to be 90%, and I am submitting a moderately strong PSE with my application by the end of January. (I have a 91% for my top six classes and hopefully that secures entrance to UWO Engineering for a safety.)

Do you think I will be admitted to Queen’s this year? If you are applying to any Engineering program, what are your marks and expectations?
