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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
Hey Fellows, suppose one is offered a given scholarship value for early admission either @ uOttawa or Carleton based on Gr. 11 marks. And then your marks drop in Gr. 12, will they decrease the value to the new percentage or keep the previous value?
I know they can increase the value, but no one ever said anything about dropping the value.
I'm a first year Biomedical Mechanical Engineering student studying at the University of Ottawa. Feel free to ask me about anything ( residence, admissions, campus life, academic resources, admissions to other Universities, why u of O, etc.) and I'll answer to the best of my abilities. Fall last year was really stressful for me when applying for uni, so I hope this thread will help you guys out.
So I'm currently interested in Aerospace or Software at Carleton, however my marks considerably dropped from grade 12 as i have tougher core courses (Advanced Functions, Physics, and Chemistry) - total mid term average is a 75 right now.
My marks in grade 11 average was 89-90.
Can i still get in (physics is what impacted my mark the most so far this semester, hopefully i can still bring it up), honest opinions please!
Hey, so far this semester I have the most critical subjects that are necessary for the university I'm planning to go to (applying to UofT, Waterloo, Carleton, and uOttawa) as I'm a grade 12 student currently. I just need a few tips for the current year I'm in as my target for the marks I want is 95% + in each course, as well as, I'm looking forward to increasing my extracurricular involvement around the school/community and get a part-time job.
The courses I have this semester are: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (taking a spare too)
Next semester are: Biology, Calculus and Vectors, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science
As we all know our time is very important and is limited. I'm a current gr.12 highschool student who actually needs help with this as I tend to rush tests and barley finish them. I really need some tips on this as i know in university its going to be a much faster pace than high school. So any tips?
EDIT: Just to give another update, I'm half-way through 3rd year right now. Just went through the PEY process and wrapped that up, so if you have any questions on any of that, I'd be more than happy to share some firsthand experiences!
I was also accepted to Waterloo, Ottawa, and Mac way back when, so you can ask q's about those as well.
