yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

I will be starting grade 12, and have been taking french all throughout high school. For me, it is a mark booster (high 90s) and i enjoy the class, but i was wondering - is it worth to keep french, or switch to something like a 4M business course to boost my top 6? I plan on going into engineering or maybe business
So my final year is starting next week, and I have been curious to know the working habits of the ones who easily pull 90+ in every course. I don't think it should that big problem since I took elearning for 4u english, so mainly have to focus in maths and sciences. Yet it is grade 12 where marks actually matter, so I was wondering
What are some of the working habits to get 90+ in all grade 12 courses. I am planning to apply for engineering at Uoft, uW, and Mac.
Basically, I went to school after hours to hand in 48 extra hours on top of the (already recorded) required 40, and I was told that the system only accepts the base 40 to 'check off the box in the system'. I asked how universities will verify my hours come September, and was told that I can just write the actual number of completed hours on my application, even though it will technically conflict with my student record.
This kind of sounded like bullshit to me, so I was wondering if anyone else was able to submit more than 40 hours to their office and have it show up on their record.
I am going into grade 12 and thinking of applying to Schulich and Rotman Commerce. I had a 95% average in grade 11. I was wondering if you can still get into these programs with just the prerequistes and the rest easy courses, with a high average in the end of course. Ex: english, advanced functions, calculus, international business, economics, law, world issues, and economics with a 90-95% average.
I am relatively new to the entire application process as I moved to Canada in Gr11. During that year I managed to get an 87 average however I feel as if it's too low to get accepted into the good programs that I want. I was wondering if grade 11 really influences my chances of getting into a good program at u of t or would they only look at my grade 12 marks. I plan to work really hard in grade 12.
I'm a second year UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in first year residence, upper year winter residence and year round housing, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC. I'm in the coop program at UBC and currently on a work term with a software company.
I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring.
I'm a gr 11 student here, I find my schedule for gr 11 a bit too relaxing and want to take a gr 12 math course (either, advanced functions or calc and vectors).
My question is, if I were ever to get a unsatisfactory mark(let's say, 81), and I want to retake it again to achieve a higher mark in gr 12. How would universities react to it? I've heard that UofT and waterloo will look at it negatively, is it true? what about other universities?
Right now i am going into grade 12 with 27 credits which is good, and when i am done(if my plan works and i pass all my classes with good marks) grade 12 i will have 37 credit. What exactly does having more credit help you for?
University only looks at your top six university class.
Thinking of going to: I will get accepted
Waterloo: Geography and aviation
Grade 9(English, English(yes two english), Math,Geography,French,Science
Grade 10(English English,Math,civic and careers,Science,Gym,History,Construction,and Tamil)
I'm a current student at Ryerson entering my 4th year in September, majoring in Professional Communication. I'm currently studying for the LSAT and hoping to go to law school after my undergrad. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty. I've also recently been hired as a Project and Communications Assistant for the Government of Ontario.
I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities + job search + how I got hired in the government
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! Ask me anything!
