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.

I went through alot throughout highschool which resulted in me barley going, my marks in gr 11 were 60’s & 70’s I got through that stuff and decided university is what I really wanted to persue, I have done 3/ my 6 top courses and my average is currently an 87 I’m currently enrolled in the next three.
I just wanna know do universities look down at marks like that? I know if you have been through certain things you can write letters or fill out an application explaining the gap in your marks but, I dont really want to do that because I feel like there are people who have been through worse, I guess my question is should i consider filling one of those out or should I just let my marks do the talking
I applied for UBC, SFU, university of waterloo, university of Toronto, McGill university, York university.(all i applied for faculty of arts - economics)
My grade 12 grades (81%)
My class English 12 grade is 81% but I got 43% on the English provincial exam. So the final grade is gonna be 66%
Pre calculus 82%
Those are my top 4 courses. I know my marks are really low. Nevertheless I studied really hard. I am really worried about my English mark for universities requirements. Most of universities require minimum 70% in English. But for York university, it doesn't say about English requirement grade.
Am I possible to get into York university? (Have you guys heard of someone who got accepted with this kind of marks?)
Or can I get into any universities with this average?
I have to take ielts test or Toefl. ( But is there any way to get into York university without ielts or toefl?
Thank you guys.
I recently got my admissions to UOttawa for health sci, Western for health sci and York for biomed sci. Like pretty much everyone else, I’d like to work somewhere in the medical field one day. If anyone has attended/knows anything about these uni programs, which would you suggest would be best in terms of preparing me for the mcat/med school in the future? I’m from Toronto and a few months away from completing the IB program, and since the whole purpose of it is being “international” I don’t mind being away from home (even though I’ll still be living in Ontario lol). I also have family in Ottawa so living there isn’t a problem. But yeah, any advice and comments are appreciated! Thanks!
I applied to 7 university programs and I feel like none of them will land me a job once I have graduated. What do I do, its past the deadline to apply to more programs. Do you guys know if the following programs are good?
I have graduated high school in June 2017, but I am currently upgrading my marks. I have already applied to the 105 Ouac but now I think I should have applied to the 101 application. Which one should I have applied to?
Also for the 105 application I have already requested a transcript a few days ago but it is still not showing up in my Ouac. Why is that?
Hey so I just submitted my ouac application and it's processing. The site says it could take up to two weeks to process. The problem is the deadline for some of the programs I'm applying to is in less thank two weeks. Will the university still look at my application if ouac finishes processing it after the deadline?
I've been accepted into York University for Biochemistry and Chemistry(Biological and pharmaceutical stream). I wanted to what each program is about and how do they differ from each other? I know it doesn't matter which program I choose but which program will prepare me better for pharmacy school? Lastly, which is program is it easier to maintain a higher gpa?
I applied to York University's Chemistry program and I know they will look at my top 6 including pre-reqs. I was wondering whether the university will look at those same courses or if they will look at my overall top 6 marks for the entrance scholarships. I am asking because my overall top 6 is over 95% which makes me eligible for the highest entrance scholarship but with pre-reqs included, my average is between 90-94% which puts me in the second highest bracket for entrance scholarships.
My Future goal is to attend Waterloo's pharmacy school. I recently applied to York University, for my undergraduate, for their Biochemistry program and their Chemistry (Pharmaceutical & Biological stream) program. My objective is to comlete the pharmacy school prerequisites within my first two years and I was wondering which program would be the better choice to prepare me for pharmacy school. Also, which one is the easier program to get higher grades in? becuase I need to maintain a competitive GPA.
So I got a mark update in math, specifically advanced functions, and I have a 57 and am honestly trying really hard, I have Chemistry, kinesiology, and bio at the same time, so it's really hard to get all the hmk from each class done and study for 3 or more test at a time. Is there any advice that get get me to the marks I want? I know it seems impossible but I belive nothing is impossible! So plz just give true advice.
I am mature student who has applied for the program. I was asked for a letter of extenuating circumstance and a resume as supporting document.
I have a 3 year BA Geography and Professional Certificate in Management. I originally started in Bachelor of Admin Studies and had performed poorly so switched to Geography. I had a C GPA but the requirement is a C+. Plus I have to repeat some ADMS courses. Thats why they asked for the letter.
Now I have been out of school for several years and been working full time. What are my chances of getting in the program?
Is taking a health sci program at UW (regular) worth it? since health studies require further studies, is it best to go to a lower tier school or should I attend Waterloo (regular program)? What kind of opportunities are available for regular health studies students? all Canadian universities offer amazing education, I am just wondering if UW has better opportunities/networking etc for health studies students
So im taking French in university cause i didnt have room to take it in high school and i really want to know the language. So obviously theres some point where you will have to speak the language out loud but does anyone know how oral tests work? (i go to york u if that helps) will i be speaking one to one to the teacher or in front of the class? Are language classes here usually big? I have terrible anxiety and im already freaking out about it and my class starts in september see how bad it is? Also if you have any tips it would be great.
Ok this is going to be an utterly stupid question. How hard is it to get in to York's IBBA program?I have already applied to my top 3 programs Carleton International Business(already accepted), Brock BBA dual degree coop and Glendon dual degree Liberal arts and BBA. So my extra curriculars arent fantastic;
- I did rotary youth exchange last year in France(so I am somewhat fluent in French).
-I have been in Interact(volunteer club) for 7 years and I was the treasurer for one year.
-I work part-time as a cashier
My marks are
Calculus=72 (I am retaking it second semster to bump it)
This semester I am taking;
Boh4m business management=91ish
Second semster I am taking
French=probably a 95%
Accounting 4M= probably 91-93%
I am not going to be heart broken if I dont get in but I have nagging feeling I should apply for the slight chance I might get in. I love all three programs I have applied to but this IBBA looks like it might be fun to take and I think I would be able to get a job after University. Also I love the idea of going to school in Toronto(its only 3 hour away from home). Anybody with any info about the program or any oppinion no matter how harsh, please comment!!!
