grade 11 marks

hey guys, i just got my semester 1 marks for grade 11 and i didn't do well in bio and functions, got a 61 in bio and 58 in functions. i did have co op which was a double credit and i got a 96, so my average is in the mid 70s. i know that co op wont help me at all when applying for universities next year but i wanted to know, if i can get my overall average to a 85 by the end of the next semester do i still have a good chance if i apply to good universities. i have no idea what programs i want to apply to but probably health sci or architecture. by the way my next semester classes are physics, english, chem, and woodshop.


also wanted to know, most universities state that you must have a math average of 75% and no math mark for example under 60%. does that mean no grade 12 math mark under 60 or does that also include grade 11

Universities only look at grade 11 marks if you apply for early admission (and not all do early admission). Otherwise they'll go completely on your grade 12 marks.

With math and science marks like yours, I would highly suggest you look at getting a tutor or check out Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/ (free online lessons)

Health sci as in Mac? Good luck.... Years and years ago it was a 90 average cut off to even have a shot in the dark to get into Mac health sci...

If UofT, if you're struggling in functions you won't make the 60 needed for calculus cut off - unless of course you feel like being one of the first years fed to UofTs first year cash cow and dropping out because you couldn't hack first year calc (which is mandatory for most/all? idk check the diff major requirements in life science). Might want to rethink sciences if you can't pull off good marks in bio. Of course this isn't to say you cant work super hard and do very well in calculus.

Also "good universities" is very subjective?? A uni could be good at a particular area but horrible in others. You need to look at the programs themselves and their cut offs.

I believe its no math mark below what they are requiring is mandatory (so grade 12). Honestly with those marks I would worry about even going into a profession that involves those subjects. Grade 11 is supposed to be a test run of how it will be in Grade 12 and Uni, and with those marks I would re-visit your aspirations. I mean you could always get a tutor or study harder, but up to you.

Crazy amount of work available. Work for half the year, take half the year off and enjoy life
