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.

So i am in grade 11 right now, and I want to apply to health science for my undergrad degree.
So far I got
Gym 86 ( i know doesn't count)
This is first semester and its realllllly bad tbh
So i am planning on going to summer school for chem to get a 90+ because I really want to get a early acceptance and I need to also go cause I need a min average of 70 for the pre-requisites. But do universities look at repeated grade 11 courses?????? I'm planning to apply to (waterloo, laurier, UFT, etc.. Also I'm planning to hit all 90 this semester for Bio Math Comp Eng and Accounting.
So I want to go to university for law... But in in my 2nd semester of grade 11 and I chose to take physics this year. My school allows a class change if you don't like your class but the only other class available was grade 12 English, so I took it. Now I'm having regrets because I not only have friends in the physics class, but I feel like I would be better in a grade 11 class. I had a 70% in grade 10 math and an 86% in grade 10 science. Would those marks be good enough to get around above a 70 in physics. I'm just really stressed cuz I don't want to have 2 englishes in the same year. Thanks in advance!
I'm in 11th grade and I'm thinking about my future. I genuinely feel that I have nothing going for me at the moment. My grades are atrocious and I feel like I might even fail a couple classes. I hope to pursue a career computer related, as computers are the only thing that I have known my whole life, but I am certain that my current grades will hold me back from reaching that field. I feel like grade 12 won't get too much better, unless I manage to find some massive motivation out of my ass that will drive me into improving my grades drastically. Without good grade 12 marks, I know university won't be an option, so I am really considering college where I can study, and then hopefully make the transition into Uni that way, but my parents got extremely mad and started lecturing me for even bringing it up. I'm confident that a decent university for computer science will not consider me with the grades I have, and college seems like the only option, but my parent's are too traditional to let me go that route. It's as if they don't understand that my bad grades are already jeopardizing my chances of going to Uni, so what am I supposed to do? Atleast I'm willing to give college a try, but they just refuse to let me. What do I do in this situation.
Hello, guys i just wanted to say that my teacher has screwed up my whole chemistry grade. Firstly, this whole semester only once did we get our updated marks. I was at a really low average at midterm but after that I improved so much that I literally went up 10-12 percent. I calculated this on a piece of paper because he wouldnt tell us. So, the day before exams start I ask him for updated marks and he says he doesnt have them and that our calculations of our marks are more accurate? Wtf Then after exam. I felt I did ok...it was super hard but still think I did decent. In our region there is no exam review day so..I had no idea what mark I had or didnt have. Today I check OUAC my mark is not at all what i calculated..Like do u think I should contact the principal or something like we had no idea of our mark the whole semester, for ex weighting of assignments...we did soo many labs he made us do 1 formal lab all semester..and that was in Septemeber..He gave it back in January. I'm sorry for my english but need help..Like this guy gave speeches in the start of the semester to change our universities, like lower our expectations...
I got accepted by UofT recently for Co-op Computer Science at UTSC. I had applied for Co-op Computer Science at the University of Waterloo as well, but haven't got anything from there yet. I am an international student studying in the Indian CBSE system.
What i wanted to know was that which University is better in terms of Education, Job Opportunities, Co-op Companies and Co-op Placements, Social Life. Which is stricter in terms of education and also which has better professors.
Thanks guys. I would love answers from current students of both universities and also alumni.
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.
I applied to the mechanical engineering program in u of t and I finished the online personal profile this afternoon, I was really nervous and did a terrible job. Now I wonder if I will be rejected by u of t because of the videos (my average is currently 88).
Got accepted to both Waterloo Mechatronics and Western Engineering with AEO and now I'm applying for the National Scholarships at Western. I'd like to hear anyone's thoughts on this: If I get one of the National Scholarships (30k and up value) would id be foolish not to go to Western? Without the scholarship, I'll probably go to Waterloo and try to get my MBA at Ivey after I graduate and work
hey everyone, I am a first year commerce student here at Queen's, and I was active this time last year when I was making decisions on where to go, so I thought I would help the next group of applicants with any questions and such! :)
Hey everyone, I just wanted an honest opinion of my chances of getting into either Sciences at UBC or applied biology.
My semester 2 final marks are as follows:
Pre-Cal 12 - 90%
Economics 12 - 94%
English 12 - 79% (Destroyed my average, had a 88% in grade 11) ( Also I am still awaiting my provincial exam mark worth 40% of my total grade)
Biology 12 - 93%
Physics 12 - 88%
WEX 12 - 100%
So, my average for my top four courses (including English 12) is currently at 89%. I know this is a relatively low average for UBC, but was wondering of anyone has received an offer into my particular program choices with around the same average as myself last year. Additionally, my PP is relatively average ( Played varsity Lacrosse, captain of both basketball and Lacrosse, did cross country, started volunteering at a daycare when I was 12 and now I'm the leader of it, volunteered in homeless shelters for quite a long time, was also the coach of a novice lacrosse team, etc)
Hi, I am currently attending University of Western Ontario for the Medical Sciences Program.
I am happy to answer any questions that anyone may have about the program, course load, and overall experience at Western!
A bit about myself:
I attended a high school within Ontario and received my acceptance to Med Sci in January (or early February?). I was also accepted to multiple science programs from other universities including, but not limited to: U of T, Waterloo, York, McMaster, Queen's, Ryerson, and Guelph.
Post questions down below and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible!
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were.
In Section 1 of the application, they ask for extra-curricular activities in athletics, arts, work experience, ect. For a section like work experience, if we have more than one volunteer activity do we list a few of them in the activities tab? what did you guys write?
