  1. I have applied to Canadian universities with the university of Toronto as my ideal choice. My predicted grades match the requirements on the website but I am predicted a conditional passing grade for the core subjects (B in ToK, E in EE and total predicted of above 28). How bad is my situation?
  2. I've noticed a lot of people are asking about how many point they need to get into some Canadian universities or if their points are good enough.

  3. Hi! This is for the new 2017 syllabus IA (just a heads-up, though I'm pretty sure it doesn't change the RQ format). I've already done part 1/3 of the IA (the source identification and evaluation part), so while I'd appreciate phrasing and diction help, I'm sticking with this topic. I had already changed from 1870s US reconstruction policies to WWI US neutrality, and then from that to this. I have a penchant for Canadian history, which we study as much as US history in our Americas HL topic, so here it is: How was Prime Minister Borden’s leadership responsible for deepening the rift between French-Canadian and Anglo-Canadian national identity from 1911 to 1920? Please let me know if you think I should change anything -- like narrow down the time period, for instance. I chose 1911 to 1920 because the years span Borden's two terms and include the French-Canadian disdain for the early Naval Aid Bill, the Manitoba/Ontario bilingualism affair in trying to eradicate instruction in the French language, and the 1917-1918 Conscription crisis. Thanks!
  4. Hi My name is Elijah and I am conducting a survey of IB students as part of my data management project. If you could take them time to fill out and share this survey it would be much appreciated. The survey can be found at this link: http://bit.ly/2hyGto8. Thank you for time and good luck with your future good luck with your future endeavors.
  5. Hi guys, Are any of you taking IB music and applying to a Canadian university? I heard that canadian universities don't really accept IB music unless you're going into a music only focused career. By that I mean doing stuff like playing in an orchestra, being a conductor or a music teacher. NOT stuff like doing stuff like music technology, or working in a studio/theatre/stage doing sound mixing and stuff. What I am trying to get at is, i'm interested in doing something like that (working in a theatre or studio doing sound backstage) and so I want to apply to music technology in a Canadian Uni. However, I am not so keen on taking two sciences because I am not all that good at science. I am okay at physics but not at chemistry and I don't think biology will be useful. If I took higher music and standard physics, do you think Unis in Canada wouldn't consider me?
  6. Hi, everyone! I am interested in studying law in the future, however, I do not know if it is better to study Law as an undergraduate program, which is possible in the UK, or to choose some other course (I want to study in Canada then) and after it, study law. What should I do? And what should I study before the law? Thank you so much for your answers!

    Hey all, I have just got my predicted grades and I am looking at about 34 points. I want to apply to UBC badly and I'm not sure if they are likely to accept 34. Did anyone get in with anything lower or the same points ? Appreciate all your helps guys !
  8. Hi all, I am currently applying to the US (fall 2017) and noticed that most of the regular decision application deadlines are in the first week of january, does this refer to the last day to start an application or the last day to send in documents/grades (because our mock grades are released at the end of january/beginning of February as well as the SAT results). Will they still accept my mock grades and end of year report in jan/feb or do i have to be completely finished with the application before the january deadline on their website. Thanks.
  9. I'm studying in an International School in SE Asia and I'm doing the IB diploma. I did the SAT with a score of 1280/1600 although I'm doing it again soon so it might increase. I am predicted to likely get the following IB grades: HL Math - 5 HL Physics - high 6 HL Computer Science - high 6 (possible chance to get a 7) In total, about 36-38 IB points. My CGPA is around 3.87 on 4.33 scale. With these grades, is it possible to get into the University of Waterloo's David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science as an International student? Thanks!
  10. Hi guys, I'm in Grade 11 and I just dropped to partial IB because I was failing IB chemistry. I was just wondering if my horrible chemistry mark will affect my chances of getting into a good university like UBC, McGill, UofT. I will be taking normal Chemistry 11 and 12 but will my IB Chemistry 11 mark affect my acceptance. I am still in full IB as I have to finish this school year and next year I will be switching to partial. I hope to go into sciences in post-secondary and I was wondering on what IB HL courses I should take as our school only gives us the option of taking HL courses. I am getting 82% in IB English 11, 89% in IB Biology, 90% in IB Geography, 50% in IB Chemistry, and 87% in IB Math SL. Hope you guys can give me good advice. Thank you so much.
  11. Hi guys, So like, I got accepted to SFU Bachelor of Arts (major in Linguistics) starting September 2016 and now, I'm super nervous about university and just thought, hey, it would be nice if there are other IB students in SFU that I can get to know before uni starts ^^ Comment if any of you guys are going to SFU! It would be great to know you!
  12. Hi everyone. So im in my final year of IB and will sit my exams in may 2016. I'm currently living in Australia but want to study engineering or business at uni in Canada. So far I've been rejected by UBC,McGill and Polytechnique Montreal. I am starting to get scared I will not be able to get into uni as my grades have been bad but do not reflect my real potential as I thought only the final grade counted. The thing is they won't change until the final exams but will it be too late at that point? I am not very familiar with how uni systems work in Canada but is there a way to apply to uni's after I get my final IB score? Also if anyone has any suggestions on any good unis for engineering or business in Canada I would appreciate it. I've also applied to University of Ottawa but haven't heard from them yet. Also I believe I believe i am able to achieve a grade between 35-37 in my final if that is of any help. Thanks for any help provided.
  13. Hello, i have recently been very interested in studying event management/ hotel management for my undergraduate years in university, though I am not sure where to look, or where would accept me. For our schools internal first exams which were held in Novemeber this year, I achieved a total score of 30 IB points for both term grade and exam grade. And below is my subject combinations. Please give me any suggestions you may have got in terms of where i can go, as I need to give my university counsellor a list of general places I am considering. English HL Swahili B HL Geography HL Psychology SL ESS SL Math Studies SL thank you in advance
  14. I am currently taking the IB Certificate Program. I was wondering if taking the IB Certificate program can get me into Universities in Canada? Would you be able to help me answer this question?
  15. Hii, I've applied for computer science to waterloo, mcmaster and carleton. I don't know which one to choose. I already got into carleton and I have to reply soon. The thing is I haven't heard anything from the other two universities. I expect to hear from them in may as I read that that's when they make most of the offers. If I go to carleton, I get a scholarship. I also like the campus and how its near the rideau river. I've heard mcmaster is good too, but I'm not applicable for any scholarship. Waterloo is where I want to go, but I'm doubtful whether I'll get in. Should I accept carleton offer or decline and wait for the other two?
  16. Hi, I would like to know if any of those Canadian universities accept someone who got 26 as IB final grades: University Of Toronto York Concordia University Of British Columbia Waterloo Western The courses that I'm interested in are Computer science and business.
  17. I'm choosing my IB courses today and you either take Math HL or English HL so the combinations are Math HL & English SL, Math SL & English HL, Math Studies SL & English HL. I was going to choose Math HL & English since I really don't like english and I'm stronger in math. Then my friend told me that in university you needed like a writing course in english or something like that and that English HL would count as a credit for that and I wouldn't have to take a writing course in university. I live in Canada and will most likely go to university here. I'm still not sure what I'll be taking in university but it will probably be something in science. My friend asked the IB coordinator and she said you do need a writing course in uni. But I went to a couple universities' websites and looked at Bachelor of Science requirements and an english/writing course wasn't required. I really HATE english and if it is a required course in uni then I'll switch to English HL so I wouldn't have to take it in university. So do you really need a writing course/english to get a degree in university?
  18. Hi, I recently started a blog (its about IB) and I was wondering if I should include it for my extracurriculars. I know a blog can be included, but I'm not sure if its a good idea to include mine as it might decrease my chances of getting in. Can you go through my blog and see of its good enough to tell the universities about it? Thanks!
  19. Is anyone here interested in attending McMaster University (Hamilton, Canada). If so, for what? And also, is anyone here attending or have you attended the school? I'm just curious because my goal is to go to McMaster for their Health Sciences program (my dream since gr. 6) so I was wondering if there were any students I could relate to (if still in high school) or any students I could ask personal experiences about (if you go there, doesn't matter which program). Thank you!
  20. Hi there! I want to go to waterloo and I had a few questions, you could say.. Firstly, is the campus as bad as they say? I've heard and read several things that aren't very good, just wanted to confirm. Also, how hard is it to get in? I mean I know its competitive (I've applied for computer science) but what ib score do you think i need to get in? The website says 29, but I'm pretty sure a candidate with 30 wouldn't get in. I know the cutoff is pretty high (94% last year if I'm not wrong), but I don't know what it is for IB..any idea? I'd really appreciate any help with this, I'm just so confused and I have no clue where I stand...
  21. So right now in school, we're choosing our DP courses for next year. However, I am still unsure if I will be taking the full IBDP or just IB courses I know a lot of you will tell me that the IBDP is worth it and stuff, but I'm a pretty competitive swimmer (I swim around 9 times a week) so managing the IB as well as all my co-curriculars just sound absurd to me at this point. On top of that I would be having to do the EE, CAS, and TOK which I'm not particularly interested in, to be honest So my main question is will I still be able to get into a (RELATIVELY) good university by doing partial IB? Please keep in mind that I go to high school in Canada so I will be graduating with an Ontario Diploma (OSSD) as well as my IB Certificates. Is this sufficient? My university options are mostly in the UK, but also a few in US and Canada. My subject choices look somewhat like History HL English Lang/Lit HL Biology SL Math Studies Economics SL Latin SL ******************btw, planning on taking Poli-Sci or International Relations in Uni, maybe even Law in the future******************************************* Are my subjects alright btw? I might even take Biology as an HL Thanks in advance guys!
  22. Okay, so my entrance essay and assessment are happening tomorrow (currently grade 8), and I have done research, but no one has the same entrance as me. Tomorrow we get a choice of two essay questions (???) and have to write an essay in an hour. But while I look through this site, everyone seems to have had a set amount of time to consider the essay (and everyone's is "why should I be accepted to the IB program?"), but I'm just going to write it on the spot. Did anyone go through this? I'm quite confused at this point, because I'm not prepared for the type of questions I will be asked. If you had to do the same thing as me, could you offer suggestions as to what the essay might be focused on? For example, is it something along the lines of "Why I believe animals should be kept out of zoos", or "Why I am a good candidate for the IB prep program?". I wish we had more time for this . Please help me out if you can .
  23. Hi everyone, I am currently doing the IBDP program. I will be writing my exams in May 2016. I was looking at the requirements for Management Engineering at University of Waterloo and other Canadian universities and had a question. My subjects are :Geography (HL)Maths (HL)Physics (HL)Business and Management (HL)English (SL)French ab initio (SL) One of the requirements for Management Engineering is Chemistry, but I have not taken chemistry (as my school doesn't provide it). Does that mean that I’m not applicable for this program? Thanks to anyone who replies!
  24. I'm in my 2nd year of IB and I wanna go to Canada for undergrad in computer science. I might even do a dual degree in cs and bba (or something like that). Can you suggest a good university for me? (btw, i got 35/42 in IB1) thanks
  25. I am currently in IB1 and looking at studying abroad in Canada. Do many universities offer grants? If anyone has any useful pointers on Canadian unis that would be a big help! I'm looking at universities in Quebec like McGill, because I am half French so I would like to use both my languages, but I would prefer to study in English. I am looking at taking Human Geography, Sociology or Cultural Anthropology. Many thanks
