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.

I have recently gotten acceptance to both programs (and hoping to be accepted in the page program) and I'm debating which one.
I would like residency, but I live in Ottawa, therefore would it also be a waste of money to go in residency when I can stay at home? I'm paying for university by myself so it mean's probably getting a loan for my 3rd/4th year...help!!
Idk if it's just me or not but Im actually having anxiety about grade 12 and idek how I am going to manage that important year
I actually think no university will accept me and I am actually hoping so much that I will do better next year because my mark right now is so low for my program at my dream school. (MCGILL DESAUTEL) -ughh so crazy.
So yeah. Comment below about your stress and anxiety if you are in grade 11, Class of 2017!
Hey guys! Just wanted to make a thread to see who has been admitted to a kinesiology program for fall 2016! If you've been admitted, could you please comment which university, when you applied, and your average! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
Hi i am currently a grade 12 student in Ontario and i have been stressed out because i dont know if my marks are good enough for the biology program at York or Ryerson. I got my finals today which are:
Advanced Functions 78%
world History 85%
total average 82.5%
The prerequisites for bio for York and Ryerson are advanced fuctions, biology, english, chem and two other 4u/m course Last year for english i got 79% and for biology i got 90%. I need answers.
so i am repeating advance function second semester, i did really bad first semester.
should i retake it in night school or private school, i know that i get to pay for my mark in Private school but i dont really want to pay $500, but also at the same time i want at least 82%. please help me and tell me what i should do. also the university i applied to accept repeated course and i am going into business
I feel so awful right now I can't even believe it.
So, I am a first year arts student at an Ontario university. I have not been happy with the idea of getting a general arts degree that I do not feel will help me enter the industry I want to enter. Like, really unhappy.
Then I learned more about Ryerson's Creative Industries program and it seemed like the program for me. It's also in Toronto, somewhere closer to home and where I would much rather be than where I am now.
But I have just realized how competitive this program is. I understand many people got in with an average of about 90%. In high school, I graduated with an 83 average, firstly because I trying to reach the admissions expectations of the program I am currently in which is lower than Creative Industries and secondly because after getting in with an 86 average during midterms, I breathed a sigh of relief and let my grades slip.
In university, I have been doing alright. I am in five full-year courses and after midterms I had one B, one B-, one C+, one C and a D in a course where I bombed the exam. See, my problem is that I have time to pull all these marks up, as they are full year, but admission won't see it in time for it to make a difference.
I do have the opportunity to write about extenuating circumstances- I struggle with mental health and it definitely affected my high school grades, it was a very prominent issue and I also had to deal with constantly adjusting my medication which caused sleeping irregularities. It has affected my adjustment to university. But how do I argue that my mental health has affected both high school and university and still have them think I'm fit to be in this program? And how much could the letter weight, could it really convince them to accept me with an 83 high school average and a C university average?
Help me please. Right now this program is the only university option that makes me actually feel hopeful about the future in academic terms. If you are in Creative Industries and especially if you have transferred, do you know of anyone who has gotten on similar marks?
We are a Canadian family currently residing in the US
Planning to move back to Toronto in the summer (2016).
My oldest daughter will be going into grade 12.
I wanted to ask your help in connecting me with Canadian/ Ontario education specialists which know the Canadian university systems, requirements, options and programs available which will help my daughter to sieve thru masses of information.
We are overwhelmed with the information of the vast choice of programs and approaches one can take, but especially confused with one can do in life once completing each option...
I will of course compensate that person for their time and effort.
To be more specific, she always dreamed of going to medical school. Here in the US she attended a medical academy in High school (grades 9 thru 11). Grades 9 thru 11 are straight As (which is above 90%) grade 11 all honors level classes she is about B average (which is between 80% to 90% - would have been considered A in Canada).
She is really struggling with Sciences... and is devastated about it, as Medical school seems like a far achievable goal.
We would like to know what other degrees/studies/careers, will keep her involved in the medical field if she does not proceed/make it to medical school ...
Where do we go ? What does she need to take in her grade 12 etc...
As mentioned above, I will of course compensate that person for their time and effort.
Hey there, I go to a non-semestered high school and wanted to know how many grade 12 final marks I need to be eligible for acceptance (not early acceptance). I have 2 so far, so do I need a minimum of 3 or...?
I'm a current 3rd year student at Ryerson, majoring in professional communications and minoring in law and marketing. 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 can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! AMA!
Hi! I am currently in Grade 12 and I just got my 1st semester marks and here they are :
Photography : 96
Advanced Functions : 91
and English : 73........ (sigh)
Well as you see I am really worried that I won't be able to get into Rotman Commerce (1st choice) because of my English ,since they want at low to mid 80s... Second semester is easy for me I have Challenge and Change, Calc&Vec, , and Computer Eng. My average can still be around 89~ 90 ,which I am going to try really hard. So do I still have a chance for U of T Rotman Commerce?? How about Laurier? Do I have a chance for any of these two?
Is it possible to repeat two courses and get into the business programs I've applied to (schulich, Ivey, queens, rotmans, Laurier).
I have to repeat my advanced mark as I took it in grade 11 and got 87, and my English mark this year is an 87 as well. Although my other courses are weighing out my average some what, I don't think I'll get in to these schools with the 90% average I have, probably need atleast 93+.
Any ideas if I can repeat two courses? I know rotmans doesn't look at repeats so that might be out of the question entirely.
Hey guys, I wondering about my chances of getting into Waterloo AFM and Laurier BBA with a 89% on Advanced Functions but 90-92% on Calc, the rest of my marks are low 90s. But my predicted english mark is about 80-83%.
