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 this semester I have four courses, which are physics, religion, business and english. I expect to get over a 90% in all these course except for physics. At midterms I had a 90 in physics, but that quickly dropped to a low 80. However, physics is not a course I need for any of my university applications and next semester I have 3 University Level courses and 1 Mixed Level course. Suppose all my other courses are above a 90 and for physics I end with with a 70. Would this mark at all affect my university acceptance (supposing physics is NOT included in top 6)?
Hi I'm applying through the 105 D application due to the fact that I'm not in high school anymore. In my application under the 'Academic Background" tab i put down various nightschools and higshcool attended. But my questions is, when it asks "highest year level achieved" what do i put down? i been to that highschool all 4 years and passed through all my nightschools with high marks, but the night schools are only 1 semester long each. so what do i put down in highest year level achieved in each?
I am applying to universities in Ontario as a grade 12 high school student. I had applied last year but did not meet the prerequisites then.The OUAC application asks if I have applied before, so should I say or will it affect my application?
Hey! If you guys have a moment to spare please fill out the below short survey regarding University applications. I am currently working on a research project and need your help! I'd really appreciate it and with your response, you will be entered in a draw to receive 1 $100 gift card give-away! Thanks a bunch and best of luck with applications!
Hi, I am applying to university using the OUAC 105D application and am almost done my application. The part in which it asks for 'Academic Background' it says if my school is eligible for submitting a transcript electronically, I can make a request for that. I have a few questions regarding this.
My first question is however, how long will it take for the OUAC to receive my transcript electronically? Also just to make sure, will that same electronic transcript be used for my university application to my university program choices?
My other question is regarding which school I choose to request my transcript from. I graduated high school from L'Amoreaux Collegiate Institute in 2017. I had attended night school courses at Albert Campbell Collegiate Institute & Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute to upgrade some courses right after graduating. The most recent school I attended was in 2018 this year and I was enrolled in a day school program at Scarborough Center for Alternative Studies. My question is which school do i request my transcript from?
I have noticed that there have been many threads like this ran for nursing, business, and engineering. As I am hoping to enter health science, I thought it would be beneficial for myself and those who are like-minded to share a few things with one another:
School/programs you plan on applying to:
Grade 11 average:
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
Grade 11 average:
Challenge & Change
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
I hope to be a naturopath or chiropractor.
Hi prospective nursing students! Let's use this thread as a space to share information, questions, concerns, advice, and more with one another as the year progresses.
To get the discussion rolling, start off with your:
• programs of interest (both nursing and non-nursing);
• expected average; and
• career goals!
I'm thinking of applying to McMaster for nursing and health sciences as well as Western for nursing with a 95-96%. I'd like to be a nurse practitioner in the future, but do not have a particular speciality in mind yet.
So, recently I've been having a dilemma. In grade 11 Functions I got an 80%. This year in Advanced Functions, I have the same teacher, but I'm getting a 60% (or possibly lower now). Due to this, I decided that maybe I shouldn't pursue business and instead tried to find something that peaked my interest. When I researched, I decided on Criminology. However, now I'm really scared because I don't think a BA is employable, whereas a BComm would look much better on a resume. I've gotten accepted into every university I've applied to thus far, and want to try my luck at Ryerson Business Management (only business program I now have the qualifications for), but the only thing stopping me is my Advanced Functions mark and most likely not being able to reach the requirement of a 70% average in that class. I completed ENG4U in summer school and got a 90% and all of my other courses this semester are mid-high 90's mark wise, so my average itself is around an 87, but math is really dragging me down. But, I don't really want to retake Advanced Functions because I have a lot going on next semester too, and I find it really annoying that I should have to retake something I already put myself through. I know retaking it is the obvious answer, or taking data instead, but I just feel really discouraged and scared. I guess I'm on here hoping to get advice or possibly some reassurance. I just want an employable degree.
Hi, I am planning on going to university next year with hopes to get into medical school 4 years later. I want to get into a program which is relatively easy so I can have a high GPA, yet also prepare me for the MCAT and medical school. I was looking into ryersons biomedical program but I was wondering if it would be hard to achieve a high GPA.
I currently have a 68 in functions and I am going to re take it in private school next semester. I am just wondering if a university like Ryerson would look at the 68 right now and decline me, would I have to contact them and tell them that I am retaking the course?
Is anyone else applying to nursing programs after finishing a different undergraduate degree? I finished my BSc at Western this June, and I'm applying to nursing programs for Fall 2019. I'm a bit concerned because my cGPA is really low (the last two years were much better - but still not sure its good enough for nursing)... I finished with a cGPA of 73.8% (2.92) and had a 78% (3.30) for the last two years.
I've applied to a ton of programs due to the low marks - Ryerson/Centennial, Ryerson/George Brown, Trent Compressed, Western/Fanshawe, UOttawa, Humber 2nd Entry, MoMac, CoMac, Laurentian/St.Lawrence.
Has anyone else applied to these programs after doing a university degree? Or know of people getting in out of uni with a lower average?
My next step would be applying to a college Pre-Health program, but hoping this won't be necessary so I can avoid extra debt/an extra year of school.
I got a conditional offer of admission to Ryerson's biomedical program. I received it morning of Dec 1... is this correct? myRyerson and my communications tabs say I have received and offer and i also get played a congratulatory video. its so early?????? i also applied to ryerson 2 days ago????? is this a glitch?
