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 go to a non semestered school. Since I'll be taking all of my grade 12 courses from the beginning, will universities look at my grade 11 marks for early acceptance? I know that grade 11 marks are looked at when there are no grade 12 marks so I'm a little confused. I had a 94% average, my lowest one so I am not sure.
I have a huge problem that still needs to be solved but feel that with the help of members of yconic, it can be solved with beneficial advice. I have a year and a half till I apply to uni and am kind of stressed that I won't get in (especially since I know people who attend ivey league schools). Now, I do obtain good averages but when I look at more successful students around me, I feel that I need to do so much better! Do yo think that with continuing maintaining a high avg, already being an exec of 2 clubs and potentially getting a part time job will gain the admission officers interest? I currently am looking at Western, Carleton or UFT!
Basically I'm a grade 12 student in a dilemma. I wish in my earlier years i could have thought to taken some grade 12 courses. Now I'm going into grade 12 with nothing. I need to know how many courses I should take. Here is a list of courses I have right now:
Sports and Entertainment Marketing
Calculus and vectors
French (because I'm in french immersion)
Geography (because I'm in french immersion)
I need to know if taking more courses would be a good idea or would it turn out to be disastrous. My main goal is to get into top business schools. If you agree with taking more courses do you have any recommendations on courses I should take wheter it be online or in school. THANKS!
Hi everyone! I'm going into gr.12 this year and I took the philosophy course just because I didn't want to take religion again, but I'm not sure what this course really is about. So I have a few questions to ask if you guys don't mind answer:
1.What did this course teach?
2. Did you enjoy it?
3. Any tips I should know going into this course?
4. What were your assignments like?
5. If you don't mind answering, what was your final grade in this course?
I'll be going into grade 12 this year and am really worried about uni. I'm looking at UCalgary, and am confused about their admission averages. They say that they use at least 2 grade 12 grades for standard admission... but what if my average with all grade 12 grades ends up being higher than my average using 2 grade 12 grades and the rest grade 11? Would they reconsider me for admission in the March-April time frame? Please help. Thanks.
I am a student in BC (near UFV) and am interested in studying business, eventually making a career in Human Resources. I have looked at rankings and lists but none of them have been very comprehensive.
Money is not an issue at this point but I just needed some feedback as to what would be the best choice. I am interested in doing international programs possibly, as well as co op for sure.
I am an IB student currently as well, I know SFU loves IB students but UBC and UAlberta give decent benefits as well.
Is there anyone out there who could offer some insight about these two schools and the nursing program offered at each? I've heard the program at MRU is supposedly better, but is it so much so that future employers would prefer MRU graduates above U of C graduates?
Of course I will apply to both and would take it from there.
I am currently entering my first year into an engineering physics program at a "recognised university". Because this school is not my "dream school", I would like to transfer to U of T's engineering science. My courses are comparable for the most part (except for 4 courses which i would need to catch up on), which means I would more than likely get (if my grades are competitive of course)a transfer to second year, while needing to catch up on four courses. This would mean that I would need to take 8 courses per semester during my second year. I am not sure whether this would be feasible, in the sense that I've heard that second year is already the most difficult of the entire program.
What do you guys think? Is it feasible for a strong student? Thanks
So I took grade 11 physics in summer school and I think my teacher skipped a few things. Especially in electromagnetism, where we only covered right hand rules and circuits and also in the waves unit (all we learned about were characteristic of waves, not any of the frequency,speed of light word problems). SO HOW MUCH OF THIS IS IMPORTANT IN GRADE 12? I am aiming for 90+ but I feel as though I'm at a disadvantage.
I understand the majority of kinematic, forces and work though.
I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay. Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.
You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.
Soooo I've been planning real hard before my grade 12 school year starts. I legit have a word document listing all my ECs, programs i want to apply for, etc. Anyway, I've been keeping an eye on McMaster for their B Com program lately
So lets say that if I do get in, I major in their finance program and minor in computer science.
Down the road, is it possible for me to finish off my computer science degree as well? (bc i probably would've finished a good chunk of it as my minor). Idek if this makes sense, if not lemme know LOL. Thank ya!
I just took a summer school course and I was wondering if universities see this. If I chose to do this course online, would there be a different course code? Also would private be a different course code?
Man, I feel hella sad I moved to a new school in a good area in Grade 10, tried to make friends And its grade 12, I'm graduating with no squad I actively chill with
I have a lot of people that talk to me at school, say hi to in the halls, want to work with me when it comes down to school stuff
But no squad to call my own. No friends that invite me out.
All of the people at my school have their groups made since grade 9, and even before since middle school. It's so hard to find a place where I just fit in man
I tried getting to be friends with one group of people, but despite all my friendliness and my efforts showing that I see them as friends outside of school, they ignore me and don't see me in the same way
I try to invite them out places, but they never come through. And when it comes down to their stuff (movies, birthdays etc) they don't invite me out
And now I'm graduating Grade 12, no real friends that I chill with outside of school I'm not an awkward person, I play basketball casually, but idk man
I'm normally a guy not fazed by sh*t like this, but when I saw my friend posting pics of his birthday party on his snapchat story, I got kinda sad :/
