French or other bird course
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

Grade 12 Habits
Hey guys,
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.

Revoke admission?
Is it possible to get revoke near the end of summer from Laurier ? And if you do revoked what do you do?
Do Ontario high schools accept more than the required 40 hours?
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. 
Question on admission to universities
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.

Getting Accepted
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.
Thank you
QuARMS 2017 Applicants
Hey, anyone here applying for QuARMS this coming year? We can use this thread to connect and get to know fellow QuARMS applicants and support each other through the process!

There are obviously huge expectations for a student in this program, that while I am painfully aware that I will 99% not get in, I want to at least give myself the best chance in that 1%

What do you think about your own chances, and of course motivations?

met all admission requirements but didnt hear back from uni
i handed in all my final documents but UOIT never sent me an email saying im accepted?
i did have an issue with a physics mark, i was taking it with the ILC but was withdrawn last minute and couldn't do anything about it so i had to use my old physics mark (60%)
but i still met the requirement of 72% avg with no grade below 60%

but i called to ask "what now" and was told they will make another FINAL decision?

Should i be worried

Full Course Load?
Hey guys,

I want to apply to waterloo engineering and I was wondering if it's helpful to take a full course load? I took english in summer school, so these are my courses:

First semester: Adv. functions, comp sci, business, art
Second semester: calc, physics, chem

Is it a good idea to add another course second semester or is it not worth it?

Retaking Gr 12 Advanced functions/Calculus and vectors
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?
What does having more credit help you with?
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

Applying for UofWaterloo
I'm a student who studies in Ontario, Canada

I'm in Grade 12 right now and I'm planning to apply for UofWaterloo AFM (co-op) program.   

In Grade 11, I had an average of 90% and I'm expecting around a 91-93% for Grade 12. The problem is I have no extracurriculars 

However, I have 2 jobs, and did around 60 hours of volunteer work at 5 different placements

If I do very well in the AFM assessment along with my current grades and experience, will that be enough to get me into the program
