Hey guys so i got into UTM in late February with a 75% in calculus (midterm mark). Calculus was a prerequisite for my program at UTM (psychology) and they wanted my mark to stay equal to or above 70%... unfortunately my final calculus mark is below 70%, although my grades for my other classes are really high. My average is around 84% which is good in my opinion, but i didn't make that calculus requirement.
It's too late for me to do summer school because they need my marks by august 12. Be honest.. am i getting revoked? and if I do.. what should i do? i already bought the plane tickets and everything.
Compared to the likes of med students at Queen's, Western and U of T, Mac's med school is easy to get into and the average student weaker. Both my parents are doctors and when I asked them and their friends, they said they would never hire a Mac med school graduate. They are seen as low in the profession.
Im going to grade 12 next year, and I just wanted to know which universities care if you repeat a course. Im planning on going into some business field. Actually, I lied. To be honest, I have no idea what I want to do after High school. And sucking at science just makes it even worse. Most of my options are all gone. I'd love to be an engineer or any field related to computers, but Im just not good in physics or chem. Any recommendations are open that only require math.
Also, how do victory laps work?. For example if I mess up in advance functions or calc, and I don't have the grade I need to get into a good University, then how can I upgrade my mark. Would summer school be an option? or would it be to late to apply. How about night school? Im really scared, so i want to know all my options, and backup options, and backup backup options I have.
The courses i'm taking next year:
Calculus and Vectors
(please let me know how my electives are... easy, hard etc)
I am going into grade 12 and interested in business.
The title already says it all. I have heard a lot of good and bad things about these schools as well as many different points of view. Could you please tell me your preference in regard to any aspect of school and why.
The ultimate goal of attending a university is to land a job. Therefore, please address about the job placements after graduation.
Please be simple and unbiased as much as possible. Real personal experiences are highly preferred. If using any source on the internet, please be selective. No rage war and stay on the subject please.
I just did grade 11 physics during summer school and it wasn't that bad. I was planning on taking grade 12 physics in the upcoming summer but a lot of people have said that it would be too difficult to go through that much information in only a month. Should I choose to do it during the summer as it's my only option?
Im currently going to college right now. im going to apply to some universities. However if i am not accepted, can i still transfer to the university with another major and change the major right after i get accepted? or is there any other way to transfer to the university with a major i want to study in?
I have been pretty interested in lakehead university for the concurrent education program in thunder bay, mostly because of the beautiful campus, small population, and my only other real option would be Brock (which I wouldn't mind but something about going there seems off to me). However, I haven't really heard much about the place and I think they might only have wired internet at the thunder bay campus. So, I was wondering, if you are a student there, do you enjoy attending lakehead? And also, is there wifi? OR should I just get over my bad feeling of Brock and just go there?
Im applying to U of T for the 2016 entry but i have to enter my college preferences now. My preferences for college are -
1. I need a single room for first year as well.
2. I would want an ensuite washroom
3. I would prefer to live in a college with a games lounge i.e has a pool table and/or ping pong table.
What do you guys suggest I go for? Im an international student btw
I desperately need help, I am going into grade 12 in the fall, and I am really stressed about not getting into the university i wanted which is University of British columbia, my average in grade 11 is around 80%, not too good for UBC. I took grade 12 precal in grade 11 hoping to lighten up the my courses in grade 12, but in the end it didn't go so well, and I ended up receiving a 68%, so I decided to take summer school, and I got 88% which is ok. But here is the problem, UBC acceptance average for commerce is around 92%, and I heard that they drop some percentage off of your summer school mark? my question is that should I take Pre cal again in grade 12 or no?
My extra curriculum and my Personal profile is good, I have 2 jobs, involved in leadership clubs, volunteer a lot, outside sports. I'm just worried about the mark, and also the mark that I'll be getting in grade 12.
Please help. Thanks
I finished first year with a 9.2 GPA. Which is above the cutoff (Heard its 8.3 this year) but below the "you need a 10+" unwritten rule. What are my chances of getting coop? During first year I had 3 extracurriculars with 1 exec position.. much better high school ec's if that matters, A summer job with a big company doing actual important work which I can sell and finally I am above average at interviews but not killer. I did really well in the core courses too if that means anything.
I want to do my bba and then my CPA but I want to know how long does it take to finish the graduate diploma at Laurier and also where do I do my capstone 1 & 2 since Laurier bba and graduate diploma does not cover these modules?
ok, before you say no, the lady sent me and email for a job interview @ kumon almost month ago. And scheduled it for tomorrow. She didnt scheduele it earlier, because they werent hiring until september. But alot can happen in a month, so should i sent her an email reminding her about my interview?
I know since she scheduled it, its not possible for her to forget about it. But i can help but think about the worst case scenario-her forgetting about the interview and wondering why im there or am i just over-thinking? She sent an email for the interview literally last month (July 1st and it was scheduled for tomorrow, august 4th). What should i do??
I'm a student who is going into 12th grade this September from Ontario, I was just wondering what I could do this summer in regards to preparing for university applications.
I have all the hours and marks I need so far(not including the grade 12 marks I will be completing next year). Like are there any scholarships or things I can apply to for the summer?
Also is it better to go the Life Science or Biochemistry (mainly Mac or UofT) route when it comes to pre-med options. I want something more biology based and I'm not sure I will be accepted for Health Sci (at Mac or McGill).
My average for grade 11 (7, grade 11 credits and 2 grade 12) is 90% so would I be eligible for early acceptances?
I heard that Computer Science is about math more than programming so would a computer programming degree at UofT be better if I wanted to work in a big tech firm? I doubt I would get into Waterloo for SE.
A small number of high school students from Canada goes abroad every year to medical school in the UK around 80 or so each year. Around 300 (mostly people who have finished undergrad) go to Ireland each year. Many of them want to return to Canada, go to the US or stay in the UK. Depending on your route, you might want to know more about the difficulties you might face including residency, completing, studying in a different country.
I've done a lot of research into residencies, the difficulties an IMG will face etc etc. So if you have questions, PM me or post on this topic.
Edit: I no longer am a medical student in the UK. I did finish three years in the UK but am now attending medical school in Canada. I am still available for advice regarding the UK however.
I was unable to hand in my signature forms until July 30 but I applied for OSAP June 1st. My MFSAA was received by my university on July 15th. I am now worried that I won't have the OSAP money in time to pay for my tuition which is due on August 27. The school says that it will do a reversal on all late fees if OSAP sends them the money by September 30.
I am going into grade 12 next year in BC. Other than math and sciences, I have space for one elective. I couldn't get into Law or Accounting because of timetable conflicts and have to take Peer Tutoring as an alternative. But I can switch to something else if it fits. I was wondering if Psychology 11 or 12 is worth taking? Will it be helpful if I am going on to Pharmacy after completing science prerequisites? Any experiences and is it a lot of work?
