Advice please?!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello,
I just finished an ILC summer booklet for grade 12 English. Got my mark back and it's a 56.I don't understand this because my work was sufficient and I answered all the questions accordingly. Some high school teacher from another school marked my work -- not the learning centre staff. I received  a 90, 85 ,and 86 in grades 9, 10, and 11 respectively. I do not want this mark to be on my transcript as it will jeopardize so many opportunities. And if I repeat it, it still shows on my transcript - also I'm applying to a bursary and they need my transcript and seeing me repeat a course is just going to be an automatic no. 

My question is how do I stop this from going on my transcript? Is there ANYTHING I can do. I tried to contact the teacher but he hasn't replied. I am really stressed about this, I haven't gotten anything less than a 80 in my 3 years of high school. 

*I will be applying to these universities: McMaster, Western, York, and Ryerson so if I am unable to do anything how will they look at my repeat?

A few questions about first year U of T Computer Science
1.) How does one go about transferring from UTSC CS to UTSG CS for second year? What is the procedure to go through with this?

2.) Are textbooks that are listed as being "recommended" by the professor for purchase useful in the long run? Is it possible to survive without them, or do they really end up helping out a lot? 

Thank you for replying.

Grade 11 Physics and Chemistry
How hard are they? I'm so scared for them but if I drop them I won't be doing any sciences and it ends so many opportunities.
I really need advice on what course I should take in grade 11
So next year I'm heading to grade 11(I study in BC) and as of now I can't decide on what I want to take 
Here are the options(we are allowed to choose 3 of the following):
1.Biology
2.Chemistry
3.Physics
4.Science Technology
5.French
6.Intro span 11

I am truly stomped, please help me decide whether or not I should take 3 sciences or at least one language. Im for sure taking physics that leaves me with two more subjects to fill, please if anyone would respond to this it would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you in advance.
University of Toronto Engineering Student - Ask Me Anything
Hey everyone! I started this thread to answer questions from the potential class of 2017, and to keep all of the University of Toronto-related items in one place.

I'm a first year engineering student at the University of Toronto and I'm currently studying electrical/computer engineering (same courses as TrackOne). I commute to school every day, so I can't really answer that many questions about residence, but I'm sure others will be willing to chime in on that.

Without further ado, ask away!
How Hard Is Mcmaster Artsci and iSci
I just discovered mac's integrated science and arts and science programs that only accept 60 people per year. Both programs are advertised as exclusive programs for exceptional students and the acceptance rate to both programs is about 10%. Are there any students who have been admitted to the program or are already in it? If so, please tell me how difficult these programs are and what it took to get into the program.
Mcgill to Uoft Transfer

UWO Medical Science VS UTSG Life Science.
Hey guys I narrowed it down to these 2 schools.

its either go for the program or the reputation at this point. 

(safe route to medicine vs global opportunities)

what would you choose?

Update : Chose UTSG Life Science 

2nd update: still thinking.

FINAL UPDATE : ACCEPTED OFFER TO UWO MEDICAL SCIENCE 
U of T Sciences AMA

How hard is grade 11 Pre-AP math compared to academic
I got a 84 in grade 10 pre-AP math. It was mostly due to me not doing my homework and all the problems. But I am willing to do everything this semester to get over 90. I wanted to know how hard would the tests or anything else in general be in pre-AP functions compared to academic.

Thanks
Extracurriculars
From what I read from many different posts on this site and university admission pages Business universities consider Extracurriculars vital for admission. I've heard there is no real point going into business unless it's Ivey or Queens. Are my ECs good enough? How can I improve? I am aware I do a lot of stuff already but I don't want to risk not getting in.
 1) youth leader at church
 2) political advocate for both municipal and Federal candidates 
3) mission trips to India involved member of Key Club 
4) DECA Exec
 5) Model UN Delegate 
6) school badminton team 
7) Business Internships at Insurance and Logistic Company 
Transition from Grade 10 to 11? Help!
I've been commonly told that high school from grade 9 and 10 is irrelevant and easy; however, grade 11 is supposedly the hardest from high school. In my school, it's called "The Year of Tears" in my school. Is there any tips, experiences that any of you guys are willing to share?
Should I take a spare?
Hey guys I'm in Grade 12 and I'm not sure if I should take a spare this year. I had really good marks in Grade 11 (94 average for the entire year). I had 8 courses in grade 11, but I'm not sure if i should keep 8 courses in grade 12. I'm thinking of dropping data management. Do you think it is worth it? Is data hard? Will having 7 courses make me unable to gain time management skills for university? I'm planning to go into chemistry or physics.

My schedule:

1ST SEMESTER
Data Management (MDM4U0)
Chemistry (SCH4U0)
Biology (SBI4U0)
Adv. Functions (MHF4U0)

2ND SEMESTER
English (ENG4U0)
Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U0)
Accounting (BAT4M0)
Physics (SPH4U0)

Thank you if you read this really long post!!
Making Changes In Your Timetable
Hello my friends,
Thank you so much for reading this because I need your help NOW! I received my schedule for my senior year and at the bottom there was a guidance appointment saying that since my timetable was incomplete I needed to meet with my guidance counselor. My schedule is far from the ideal schedule I don't have physics, nor do I have exercise science. And I have grade 12 English the 1st semester. How messed up is that? I am new so I didn't have the prereqs for any of the grade 12 courses except bio and math. So I took grade 11 english and chem during the summer. Now I want to take grade11 physics during the 1st semester.
Is it possible for me to take four courses in my day school and a physics course outside of school? Can I change the arrangement of my courses for example, replace grade 12 eng with grade 12 bio? 
Thank you so much for your responses!!!
