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!

So how do you guys study for adv fund, biology, religion, calcu, chemistry, and English exams ? How long do you guys study for? When did you start studying? What resources did you use? Has anyone got perfect on their exam? These are all grade 12 courses and with first semester finals being important as fuck.. just wondering how much more I can do. Good luck on exams guys, hope you do as well as you want. Hopefully first year students can share their lucky tips. :D

Yes I'm aware it's early! But the last year thread was made in October and some students end up getting early acceptance so this should be helpful! :)
So I've applied to political science at the following schools:
University of Toronto
I have already been accepted to Ottawa and Queens. My average is above 90. I'm deciding where to go, but I have no idea which university would be best for my program. My end goal is eventually to go to law school.
i'm a grade 12 student and just got accepted into the nursing program at university of Ottawa and I've read about the program online but i still don't know what to expect. Is it really as hard as it seems?
It is my dream to become a nurse, but also to get into one of my top choices for school. My main concern right now is that I have taken AP Functions, which is an accelerated course where we do Grade 11 Functions for most of semester 1, and then Grade 12 Advanced Functions from end of semester 1 until the second last month of grade 12. I feel like I made a huge mistake by taking AP instead of University, because my math mark dropped 9% from Grade 10 to Grade 11. My current average right now near the end of first semester is 88%. I am going to be dropping AP Grade 12 Functions and just taking University Functions as well as Data Management in grade 12.
My main worry is that I won't have Advanced Functions until second semester grade 12, so universities will look at my grade 11 mark. I will be dropping all AP classes in grade 12 and just taking university levelled courses, and I am going to work much harder. I am just very worried about the grade 11 functions mark.
The schools I am wanting to apply to for Nursing are Queens, McMaster, Ottawa, Trent and Western.
I was planning on taking Advanced Functions on Virtual High School, or Ontario Virtual School? Any recommendations or review or anyone who's taken it before or hear things about it? Anything will help !!!!
I am so anxious. I am applying as 105D applicant and really want to know when I'll find out if I'm accepted to schools. Does anyone know when 105D applicants start receiving acceptances for Waterloo, Toronto, McGill, Western, Alberta, and basically any school you can think of in ontario?? Thanks
The title is pretty self explanatory. I know the Brock BAcc program with co-op is pretty good but is it worth it if you don't do co-op? Obviously it wouldn't be as good, but would it still be a good option?
Overall I love Carleton's PAPM course b/c it allows you to choose an overarching specialization as well as a concentration within that specialization geared more towards what you love so it's more tailored to you as a student and your exact preferences that range within that area of study but UOttawa offers French Immersion which is invaluable. It ensures that you learn the second language which is a huge advantage in this area of work. Along with PoliSci i'm also interested in International development which is what I'd choose as my concentration in the PAPM program. Because UOttawa's program is less specialized i'm not sure whether that equates to less opportunities etc.
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:
-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA
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.
Legit 95% of you fools won’t even become doctors. If you’re into money, just do business, don’t waste 10+ years of school and ruin the chance for a student who deserves to be in med school. I’m sick and tired of people trying to become doctors, just do something else ffs.
If anyone is curious about the Brock BAcc program feel free to ask me! Or if you're curious about the admissions process in general for other business programs I may be able to answer your questions. Below I've include the programs I applied to last year and where I got accepted or denied. If anything interests you feel free to ask me.
