Future High School Graduates of 2018
To all those who will be graduating in 2018, you may be nervous about keeping up your grades, anxious about choosing a university or post-secondary institution, or even excited about getting out of high school. Well, as for me, I am all of the above. My goal this year is to try not to stress too much to the point where I get headaches or not to leave things to the last minute. One of the things that I am trying not to leave to the last minute or stress about is choosing a university. I have done some research and visited a few universities, but I am having trouble figuring out which ones would be best for me (top 3 or so). I feel like this is a big decision and I want to make the right one. Any ideas, tips, or comments?

Smartness level has gone down?
Hey, guys. So I just finished grade 11 and super pumped for grade 12. But report cards came out and it was the worst report card I have ever gotten in my life! I feel like my intelligence level has gone down. For instance, I had chem 20. I studied so, so hard for that final. When I did the final it was soo easy and I felt like I did really well. Turns out I did not and it brought my final mark down by 6 percent I was just wondering why, after all of the hard studying I did, my mark didn't reflect it. Now it has got me worried. Like if I am not doing well in my 20 classes, how the hell will I get a 90% average in the courses I am applying with. It has also gotten me stressed about uni too. Like, will I even get in and how will I cope for 4 years and the next two because I want to do my masters. So if you guys have nay tips to study better or anything that will help in my later years, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Okay, I am currently in Grade 11 and last year my average was in the high 80's, and I did not try my best. This year I am aiming for a high average because I'd like to go to a University... But, till this day I still have no idea what I want to be and what to do for my future. I enjoy math (My grade 10 mark was 93) and I'm not really good with English, though I got a 91% last year. I also enjoy Science but sometimes it gets too challenging for me. Someone please help because thinking about the future and how I still have not planned it is scaring me.

How many programs did you apply to?
I'm thinking of applying to 6 programs but I'm wondering if that's too much? The way I'm doing it is 2 risky (top in Canada) programs, 3 good programs, and 1 safe choice. Is this a good ideA?

I have been trying to forward an essay that I wrote for the above scholarship for the last hour when it is supposed to close at 3.00pm ET, and the time in Vancouver was 11.00 AM, and the site says the scholarship is expired. How can that be? Can anyone answer this I have taken screenshots of all the screens showing the times. This is not right

Technical Issue with Scotiabank National Scholarship Application
I am attempting to select a school of interest in the "Post-secondary School" section of the Scotiabank National Scholarship Application. However, no matter what university or what 3 characters I type into the box, it says "No results found". Has anyone else encountered this issue? What should I do? I wanted to submit my application today so that I could be entered into the "Early Bird" round for additional prizes. :(
