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!

Last year in grade 11 I had a 79% average. This year I am starting to volunteer at my local hospital, babysitting, and working at an elementary school (help cleaning after school). Last year I did One Acts at school. It was for my drama class. Would those be good extracurricularsd for applying to university? The universities I’m applying to are: SFU, UofA, UofC, MacEwan University, and UBC(Okanagan campus). Do you think I will get accepted into any of those universities? I’m applying for a bachelor of science in either chemitry or biology. My second choice is something to do with the environment.
So I’ve applied to two universities thus far but I’m scared my grade won’t cut it as I’m in Alberta and they tell you what courses they want. Anyhow my chem bio math and social grade are all between 80 and 85 this is grade 11 btw but my English is at 67. Will that bring me down? I’m planning nursing/chemistry
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 currently in grade 12 and am applying to universities. The ones I am going to be applying to are: UBCO, SFU, UofA, UofC, and UofT. For my grade 11 year, I had an average of 78%. I’m hoping to get it up this year though. I don’t have any extra-curricular activitie, A’s for where I live is really small and am in a small school that doesn’t offer much. I hoping to start volunteering at my local hospital soon though. I’m just afraid I’m not going to get accepted anywhere. My dreams schools are either UBCO or SFU. When applying my first choice is chemistry or biology and my second choice would be to study environmental sciences.
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!
So I did poorly on my first quiz (cough cough 34% cough cough), I never knew stats 213 was that difficult , should've taken 205 instead but classes were full. Do you guys think there's a possibility of me bringing up my mark??
Hi there, I'm a grade 12 student and I very much want to study nursing in my undergrad. I was looking into programs and I thought I would just ask here to see if anyone had anything to say about any of the programs below.
McMaster vs Queens vs Western vs Calgary
Are any decidedly better than others? I can't seem to tell from my research because there are so many factors to consider.
My top two choices right now for fall 2018 are queens and calgary, calgary is rated higher for their education program but queens seems like the social scene is better which is really important to me. However, calgary is closer to home (BC). How is the social scene at calgary? is it easy to make friends? How are the profs? Please share of any of your experiences!! :)
Will universities reject me because I only took five courses durning my grade 11 year? I had a brain injury that took 16 months to recover from, and during that time I only managed to take English 11, French 11, Biology 11, Chemistry 11, and Chemistry 12. I finished with a 96% average, and am taking the rest of my prerequisite courses (and those needed to graduate) this year. I don't know whether it makes a difference, or not, but I am at a British Columbia high school, and want to study Biochemistry or Microbiology. My top three choices that I am applying to are UofA, UBC, and UofC. I also have lots of volunteer hours, and extracurriculars.
I'm currently 17 and am in my senior year of high school. I plan on applying to universities, but what ones will I likely be accepted to out of the ones I'm applying to? I'm applying to UBC, SFU, UofA, UofT, MacEwan university, and university of Calgary. I plan to major in biology, as well. I don't do any extra curricular activities or take any honours course, as my school doesn't offer them (it's a very small school). My grade 11 grades are:
I'm actually so nervous for this class since my whole summer was spent being inactive and not working out... and this whole class is wholly based on working out and such! My first lab is on Sept. 18, rip. Also, what are the exams (final and mid) like? THANK YOU
Do I need to bring anything to this event or do I just bring myself? Stupid question but kinda confused on what occurs during orientation week, insight provided for this event will be appreciated. THANK YOU

I'm an international student looking to study CS in Canada in fall 2018. I am doing A levels and have good grades, and definitely applying to UW and U of T. While I do feel like I have a chance of getting in, I cannot afford these universities (UW doesn't have any major scholarship for international students and U of T has one full tuition but my ECs are not tooooo amazing) and was wondering other schools that might be equally/nearly as good which may be more affordable too.
I am considering the following factors (in that order):
My college application will be sent through my school email, but my SAT is registered from my personal email on collegeboard. Should they be synced to one email. Does this have any effect on the application if both send from 2 different accounts?
