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!

Well........ I messed up and now I am stuck with an 80% in English. Got no one to blame but myself at the moment because of dumb mistakes on the final evaluation.
For all those that graduated I want to ask, how screwed am I? I was planning on going into biomedical at guelph or life sciences at U of T Mississauga but now I feel like I lost that chance...... I feel like my english mark will screw me over. For the rest of grade 12 I am already prepared to isolate myself from society and shut down all my tech to git gud.
Hi, I am a grade 11 student and I took a grade 12 English credit in summer school. I got a 74% in the course as my final. I want to upgrade my mark by taking private school in August. I want to apply for university of waterloo and University of Toronto. My program avg for Waterloo is low 80s, and for U of t is low 70s to low 80s. The program that I want to go into is physical sciences. My question is do you think I can still get into these universities without upgrading my English mark or do you think I need to upgrade it to get into waterloo of U of t. Also I found out that waterloo doesn't care if you repeat a course as long as you are not applying for a math or engineering program. I am not sure about University of Toronto because I am applying for a science program and I don't know if they would care or do anything because I redid the course.
I'm really stressed that I am going to get my admission revoked.
I was accepted into UBC Faculty of Science with a 93.25 average (my top 4) and it has dropped to an 87. I am extremely worried that I am going to get my admission revoked. Will that happen? If it does, I don't know what I am going to do...
Help! I am really afraid/really certain that I will get an admission revocation because there is more than a 20% (a 28%) discrepancy between my English 12 course mark and the English 12 Provincial Exam mark... They will use my English Provincial mark instead of the blended mark to re-calculate my admission average. And that new average is more than 5% (actually 7%) from my average in Term 2...
Advice PLEASE! Will I have to appeal? Advice on what to put in the appeal? Do you think I will get in after writing an appeal letter? Anybody else revoked? Anyone get revoked but then appealed and got back in?
I heard that in the past, only people that get revoked get contacted... has that changed?
When and will I get a confirmation or revocation email (when in August)? By phone? Anyone who got their appeal approved, when were you notified that?
I am going into grade 12 in September. I have been doing a lot of soul searching about what kinds of programs and stuff I wish to apply to. One of my top choices is McMaster Health Sciences and I'm sure it is many other peoples top choices as well. Ever since I was young i knew I wanted to do something in the health field, mainly to help other people out. I have always LOVED science, especially biology and chemistry. We can use this discussion page to talk about the program and stuff.
These are my other top programs:
-Life Sciences at McMaster
-Medical Sciences at Western
-Health Sciences at Western
-Biochemistry at Western
-Biomedical Science at Waterloo
If anyone was or is in McMaster's Health Science program, I was wondering what do you think makes a successful applicant? How did you decide to enter this program?
UPDATE: keep track of my journey through my blog (https://followmetomd.wordpress.com/)! After numerous comments on this forum, I decided to start up my own blog to help guide all that are interested in pursuing medicine, and keep you guys updated on my journey. Follow my blog, and do not hesitate to leave comments with questions, comments, suggestions that you may have. Cheers!
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!
Hi, i'm going into gr 12 and looking at the Schulich business school and i hear that your math mark should be around an 88 just to be considered, is this true? I got an 80% in gr 11 math and studied, If I study even harder next year, what is the highest I can get in AF, and will it be good enough? Can you maybe post your past marks for reference? Thanks.
I'm a student at the University of Toronto, planning to pursue either an Economics or Economics and Mathematics Specialist.
I understand that the University of Toronto is a popular destination for many Secondary School graduates, so I thought I'd offer up my expertise and answer any questions you may have.
I can help dispel (or confirm!) scary rumours, answer questions about the application process, or whatever is on your mind. My specific knowledge is of Maths and Economics, so I can help applicants planning to enter that field.
*Note: There has been some interest in the sale of my ECO100Y notes among entering students. I do have prepared a large document including all relevant graphs, equations and definitions - complete with explanations and descriptions. If you're interested, feel free to send me a message on the forums.
**Note: Please do not use this thread to ask whether your entrance grades are good enough. I don't really know, and don't pretend to.
I am wondering 1) which universities have the best law programs, 2) what are their admission requirements, 3) what undergraduate degree are you taking or completed before pursuing to Law school, 4) which university are you currently studying in, 5) Can you become a lawyer who does not go to court?
I strive in literacy based courses such as English and Law but when it comes to Math I completely suck. I am in grade 12 considering learning math all the way up to grade 12 university level. Any tips on where I should begin and how to tackle it?
Hi everyone I am going to grade 12 in September. I am going to apply to the nursing program at Western, Ryerson and hopefully Queens as well as the life science program at UofT. My schedule is pretty loaded and I don't know if I need to take 12U physics for life sciences at UofT because the requirement page just says some programs recommend or require the course. I completed the 11U physics course. please help!!
