When looking at grade 11 marks...
When looking at grade 11 marks for early admission, which marks do universities look at? For example, if I want to apply to the health science program, and I need ENG4U, SBI4U, SCH4U, MHF4U, and 2 more U/M courses, will they look at my grade 11 equivalent of those courses (SBI3U, SCH3U, etc...) and only take the those 6 grade 11 marks, or will they just look at my grade 11 average in total (ie. all of my courses regardless of whether they are the 4U prerequisites, or my top 7 marks, etc,)? Any insight into this would be really helpful as I’ve tried searching this online and not much as actually come up . thank you!

Physics 11 in summer school?
Hi! My course selections are coming up and I'm considering taking the full IB diploma. I'm planning to take IB Chem SL and Bio HL for my sciences. However, most universities like UBC require physics 11 for their science programs. Since taking physics HL might kill me, should I take it in summer school or online? Or would it be better to take bio 11 in summer school?

How are Grade 13s looked at for universities & scholarships?
I've gotten early acceptance but it is to my last choice school...

I was thinking of doing grade 13 to upgrade two courses, in order to get into a university I'm excited about.

1. How does Western, Queens, McMaster, and UofT (engineering) look at grade 13 applicants? Are they accepted, and if so are they given less priority than a grade 12? I believe Queens doesn't accept grade 13's.

2. How do scholarships work? Will I just be viewed as a grade 12 student, or will they not allow me as a grade 13?

York Region District School Board - Withdrawing Grade 12 Kinesiology in Grade 11
Hello everybody, I'm currently in Grade 11 and I would like to withdraw from Grade 12 Kinesiology. I have already completed 28 credits (as of February 2019) so I only need 2 more credits to graduate from high school. I'm not planning to graduate early, that's why I wanted to take Kinesiology this coming September during my last year of high school. My other courses for this semester are Co-op (2 credits) and Grade 11 Geography (1 credit), which totals to 3 credits this semester without Kinesiology. I am also taking Grade 12 Calculus and Vectors at a night school so technically, I will still have 4 credits altogether without Kinesiology.  

Do you think it is possible to withdraw from Grade 12 Kinesiology? Do you think the guidance counselors will accept my decision?

Schulich Reference
For the Schulich leader scholarship application we need at least one reference to be from a school staff member. Should it be from any teacher or a science/math teacher who can comment on my academics? I got it from a teacher who can talk about my leadership but now I am wondering if the reference had to be more about the type of student I am.

grade 11 all university courses?
Is it a good idea to take 8 university courses (3U and 4U) in grade 11? I participate in other activities so I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to do well.

University Questions!!
I'm in grade 11 and I'm planning to go into law. I was wondering what some good undergrad programs are for someone who sucks at math. The social sciences interest me as well as English. 

Also, I was wondering what some recommended universities are. I just want as much information as possible. I'm not really a science or math person. 
Thank you all! I really appreciate it :)

Is Biochemistry a good undergrad for Medical School?

I'm having some trouble deciding what I should choose as my undergrad program? (I'm in grade 11 by the way)

I'm hoping to pursue a career in medicine after completing my undergraduate degree.

Biochemistry is what I'm leaning towards currently, but I've heard people say that taking science courses will lower my GPA.

I do feel like I am completely capable of maintaining a high GPA (I have a 98 average in grade 11) but I'd still like to hears other's advice.

Schulich Leader Application
I was recently nominated to apply for this award and I have done research for the past two years. However they say they don't want students planning to go into medicine but the research I did was medical related. Should I include it or leave it out if it might decrease my chances of getting the award? I am unsure since some the past winners participated in HYRS or things like that but I just want to be sure that it including my research will not effect me negatively

Pre - Med?

I'm a grade 11 student and I'm thinking about pursuing a career in medicine.

Right now, I'm kinda unsure on what I should take as an undergrad course (something in health/biology).

I've heard that going to U of T or other rigorous schools won't be good for my GPA ( I do have a 98% average)

The schools I'm considering are U of T, Waterloo, and McMaster.

Programs that I'm considering are Biochemistry, which I like, BioMedical Sciences, or health science.

Any advice?

Horatio Alger Scholarship
I was just wondering if anyone was contacted about it? Did anybody win? It doesn't look like they updated their social media accounts or website yet.

MCV4U Prerequisite
If a student were to apply for a certain program where MCV4U(Grade 12 Calculus and Vectors) is a prerequisite, but can't submit it since the student has it in second semester, would the student get automatically rejected? If the university would not reject and would wait until the student submits a grade for that course, would it be included as a top 6 or would it be some kind of conditional offer where the university would ask to reach a certain %?

Sorry if my questions are incomprehensible/dumb, I will try to fix them if so. Still, much thanks in advance.

ENG3U- English  
FSF3U- French
MHF4U- Adv. Functions  
SPH3U- Physics

Should I take a spare for the last one or maybe something that won't be too much work like art or tech design?

Hello, I'm just wondering if I were to not have a course that is a pre-requisite for a certain program, am I unable to apply for that program, or will universities just ask me to meet a certain grade once I actually complete that course?
