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.
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.
In your post, please include the following: - Program and post-secondary institution - Date of application - Date of offer - Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications) - Province you're applying from - Any other information you'd like to add
I'm an Alberta high school student and was thinking about taking social 30 in summer school. I did social 20 last summer. I don't know if the experiences will be similar though. Do any of you have any suggestions?????
Hey everyone, Im from Calgary but I'm stuck between choosing UofC and UofA for Engineering as I have been accepted into both. I am hoping to do Electrical or Mechanical Engineering. Looking for any input or advice from anyone going to UofA or UofC that is doing coop engineering! Thank you!
I recently considered application to the university of calgary as first choice bioinformatics and second choice engineering. I am aware of the competitive averages but can anyone let me know of any recent ACTUAL entrance averages of these courses. Also am i required to have 80% in ELA 30-1 to get into any program as i could not achieve it in grade 11 but i am positive i am able to achieve it with a little bit of effort in grade 12. In the ELP requirments on the site there is a point that is confusing me if anyone can explain that would be great.
- This is what is listed on their site for what satisfies their ELP requirement
Successful completion of at least three years of formal, full-time study in English at a secondary school that meets one of the following requirements:
a. Is in an exempt country; OR
b. Is accredited to offer Canadian, American or British curricula; OR
A grade of 80% or better in ELA 30-1
As i high school student in the 12th grade these are the only two ways i can satisfy it
My average right now is at a 83.5% after first semester of grade 12 which is A- but i am positive i can get it to 85%+ after physics and math 30-1. What are my chance with this average. My grade 11 is terrible and not even worth mentioning
I know the difficulty of a subject may depend on the individual's effort or interest, but in general when it comes to university, is it harder to get high grades in social sciences, where the answers may be more ambiguous, or life sciences where you're either right or you're wrong?
I'm looking to the fellow 2nd, 3rd and 4th year students. This will be my first time enrolling in spring courses, and I need to knock out 2 for sure, but I'm hoping to add another easy option in there that won't require an absurd amount of time outside of class. ANOTHER THING, is that it seems like there are no classes scheduled in the afternoon that I have looked at so far. All my mornings are taken currently.
Hey, I just have a question for any undergrads out there doing a comp sci major. What type of computer are you using? Will I need something with lots of power or will a computer on the cheaper side be able to compile code just as well? Also, just as a side note, please feel free to comment how your experience has been so far :) I've only been coding in Java and C++ for the past two years, and am still a bit rusty at times. How have you guys coped in uni, especially those new to coding?
I've gotten accepted into the kinesiology portion of the combined degree, but I still have to audition for the dance program at u of c. I was wondering if anyone has gone through this program or if you know anyone that has gone through it? How heavy is the course load of the double major? Thanks!
