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.

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
I heard that University of Waterloo isn't a great school to go to in terms of the atmosphere there. I've also heard that 2 people committed suicide in Waterloo and every time I tell someone that i want to go to university of Waterloo, they tell me not to because I won't have any fun there too. How true is this? Should I listen to them or not?
It’s now our time to apply and be admitted! This thread is geared towards the science programs for Ontario. If you get accepted to the following programs, or any similar: Life science, Health Science, Biology, Bio-Med, Medical Sciences, etc.
(Ontario Universities / 2018 APPLICANTS)
Please TRY Including the following:
Date of Application:
Date of Offer:
Grade 11 Average:
Grade 12 First Semester Average / Second Semester Mid-term:
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! :)
If anyone is skeptical about applying, please don't hesitate! Really! I was hesitant to apply because I thought it was a long shot, but I made it and I'm so glad I did!
Generally if you have a question, post it here, and if I can answer it, I'll try to. My response rate may be within 1-3 days, depending on my schedule. If there are any other CAP students roaming around on this site who can answer questions, feel free to answer!
Greeting and salutations my friends. My average is currently hovering around a 66-69%. However my projected gym mark is around a 79% next semester. I'm currently weighing my options. My first choice is Mcmaster health sciences, my second is UofT Rotman Commerce, and my safe choice is Computer Science at Waterloo however I want to keep my pride. I have strong and Diverse EC's including Professional Igloo builder, orgame club captain, Exchange student in Mongolia (Got a picture with the President), I resell supreme hoodies on the lowww, Laser tag enthusiast (Number 1 player in Mongolia) ,Night school science award out of my class of 4, and finally recently completed driving school.
Thank you all for time, hope to see you around Mcmaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EDIT: Just to give another update, I'm half-way through 3rd year right now. Just went through the PEY process and wrapped that up, so if you have any questions on any of that, I'd be more than happy to share some firsthand experiences!
I was also accepted to Waterloo, Ottawa, and Mac way back when, so you can ask q's about those as well.
I did very poorly in grade 12 chemistry, and am retaking it now. I was suffering with depression the first time I took it, hence the poor grade. I am doing much better in the course now. I called UofT admissions, and they said they will consider a doctor's note as part of my application, but cannot say if they will accept my repeated grade or will ignore it and only consider the first attempt. Has anyone else been in this situation, and how has your experience been regarding admissions. I am specifically looking to apply to UofT and Waterloo for Engineering.
My current top 6 average is hovering around an 87 (Termed, not semestered), and I'm applying for Life Sciences at Mac and Waterloo, General Science at Western, and Trent and York. I'm hoping to get into med school one day, but I'm fully open to other career options that might open up along the way. I had bronchitis for the first two months of school which really messed up my chem and bio marks because of the heavier material at the time, but I'm still confident I could get them up by maybe 4-5% by the time universities see it.

I successfully applied for engineering at U of T (TrackOne), Waterloo (Computer Engineering), McGill and Ryerson. Was also a finalist for QuARMS, and received the National Scholarship at the University of Toronto.
I can talk about residence life, engineering workload, scholarships, my experience applying for any of the above programs, anything really. ask me anything :)
Hey guys! I was just hoping to start this thread for students applying to engineering programs in universities so if u got an acceptance or applied somewhere could you please tell us your average and where u applied :)
So Last year my avg was so crap. Cannot even explain. Anyways I've always wanted to do radiology at Mac. But after seeing health sci I really like the program and what it has to offer.. Right now i have a 85% in bio, 80% in adv and 90% in religion. I have planned to take: calc, chem and eng next semester. Just curious to know what the lowest cut off for 2017 was; for both health science and radiology. Anyone know any students with a high 80%- low 90% who got into health sci and radiology? Please and thank you :) goodluck to everyone
Has anyone received an offer of early admission for Waterloo Honours Arts and Business? It says that they usually come in December. Please state the date you received, as well as your average (4U and 3U) and if you completed the AIF or not.
I'm considering to take one of these social sciences. Can anybody who might have took either provide any input?
Should I be taking either of these? Or take something else that could potentially become a grade 12 average booster like Grade 11 Computer Engineering, or fast track a Grade 12 math or science? My overall Grade 9 English mark was a 92.
For a better understanding of me: My course I plan to take are...
Biology11 (in IBt student class)
Chemistry AP 11
+ Course (Philosophy, Anthropology, or Fast-Track Mathematics/Science, Comp Engineering?
- About to take Grade 11 computer science in grade 10 second semester.
- Taking all three sciences simply to "keep options open", yet Ive heard almost everybody takes two or all sciences knowing now whether they want engineering or biomedical fields.
Any advice about my overall course selection is absolutely welcome.
TL:DR - Grade 11 Philosophy or Intro to Anthropology?
Hi there, I am in grade 11, and my next semester courses are very heavy. some of the courses I'm taking eng3u,functions.biology and chem. Should i take chem or drop it and by the way I did'nt take grade 10 science. will this affect my mark in this course.
Before I let you know my dilemma lemme tell you more about myself. I wasn't the brightest kid in the world back in elementary school I sucked so hard at school, we're talking about 55% average maybe 60% if I cared. I picked up my slack in high school and in grade nine I somehow made the honor roll. I got a 97 in applied science so that was decent considering it was applied not academic, 71 in academic English (I was so proud of myself :D because I sucked at English always), 82 in applied math, 91 in applied geography and those are the main ones, on the top of my head, I can remember. In grade 10 I felt I was ready for academic so I did academic science and continued academic English but left math applied because of uncontrollable factors. Academic science I finished with an 84, applied math I finished with a 86 and English....I clutched out SOOOOO HARD from a 54 in English to an 80 definitely the career highlight in my life any way I really felt proud of myself because I again got the honor roll. Now on the to the dilemma, I took grade 11U chemistry and I just feel too depressed, as if right now (December 13, 2017) I'm averaging a 56% in chemistry...The other courses like accounting 11U Biology are doing quite well, I'm getting an 82 in bio and 84 in accounting (which I want to get into) in deciding on dropping all sciences in my grade 12 year and I'm taking all three maths because I feel really confident in my math skills (like I'm really improving :D) I'm also taking accounting and 12U English, my only problem is I'm worried the university I wanna apply to will look at my grade 11 marks, in particular, my chemistry mark. I'm not sure if this is a really dumb question BUT are they gonna look at my grade 11U chemistry mark? If you want more info the university I wanna apply to is right here https://uwaterloo.ca/future-students/programs/accounting-and-financial-management. For anyone who actually reads this and replies, thank you :D you have my gratitude and appreciation...even if I don't know who you are!
