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.
I am a grade 11 student from Nova Scotia with a question regarding repetition in courses and how universities handle them. I did poorly in Math 11 this semester, my grade stayed in the mid-low 70's for majority of the semester. When I wrote my exam, I failed with a 46% and my mark in the course dropped to a 65%. I want to repeat the class to get a better mark. Will universities care? Does it look bad to repeat something as important as math? Do I still have a shot at early admission based off of my current grade 11 and 12 marks? Do universities really take grade 11 marks into consideration?
Mathematics 11 - 65%
Chemistry 11 - 68%
Advanced English 11 - 88%
Canadian History 11 - 88%
Biology 11 - 86%
Global History 12 - 98%
Not to mention my upcoming courses for the 2nd semester are easy, and I'll likely be getting high 80's in them.
So we're getting pretty deep into the admission processes and people are starting to accept some offers! I think this thread will help a lot of people see where everyone is going and why. So I've got a question:
I know this is a loaded question, but I need some advice on choosing where I should do my undergraduate degree. I'm a highschool student living in BC, so I am planning on moving to a province that has a veterinary school for my undergraduate degree because vet schools (except for UofSask) only accept residences of their own province. So as far as I know, the province I go to for my undergrad determines the veterinary school I can apply to.
Choosing from Atlantic veterinary college, Ontario Veterinary College, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, and University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine, which college would you recommend in terms of university/city atmosphere, level of competitiveness when applying, and learning opportunities during the program?
