  2. I'll be completing the IB diploma in 2021 and the predicted scores will not be out till march next year. However, according to the grade that I'm getting right now, a 37 to 41 predicted score can be presumed with the major weakness being at Chinese Literature at 4 or 3. I'm a Chinese national with a Canadian maple card (Permanent residence) so I will apply as a domestic student with an international diploma. I'm aiming at applying to the business schools (Sauder, Rotman and the like) or the Faculty of Art (Economics, Political Science) What are my chances? Thanks eh
  3. 29 points without the bonus points. Math HL, Chemistry HL, and Physics HL.
  4. To whoever reads this forum, hi I'm a dp2 student who's going to take the ib exams next year may. I got a 40/45 as my predicted score and I'm hoping to apply to UofT, McGill, and University of Waterloo So far I know that we have to apply for Ontario universities through the OUAC application but I don't really get how we are supposed to send our Predicted scores. Do they require the SCHOOL to send it in behalf of us, or are we allowed to just enter it ourselves (sounds very risky, won't it be easy for people to fake it?)? I don't really get the procedure of applying to them. I know there is one more step after applying for the OUAC application such as Quest and the one for UofT but is that it? I'm hoping to apply by next week and my school office is going to start their holidays by Friday next week. If the universities needs my school to send it I have to do it by the coming week. And I don't think I can find the answer to my question UNTIL I've finished applying for the OUAC but I'm still thinking of adding a few more universities and can't do it right away. PLEASE HELP
  5. I want to study a hospitality degree in Canada instead of Switzerland because I can't stay back and work thereafter graduation. However, I don't find any school which offer the course. Please help me out! Thank you!
  6. Are there any medical universities in Canada that accept Math studies? My HL’s are biology, chemistry and psychology
  7. Hii! My HL's are Biology, Chem and Business management. MATHEMATICS SL, English sl and Hindi sl. I had physics up till grade 10 (IGCSE A*). Can I major in Computer science with these subjects in the US (colleges like Georgia tech, Purdue, Wisconsin Madison, etc) (or Canada)? I know they review each applicant holistically, but still subject do matter... Also roughly how many points (out of 45) will I require to be competitive for admission in Georgia tech!
  8. hey guys, so I was checking course enrollment and the degree requirement/ "anatomy of a glendon BA" manual at York and it mentioned a "bilingual requirement"? does this mean that french is mandatory? If so, my ab initio level isn't going to help me much 😕
  9. Hi, I am currently in MYP5, going into DP1 soon. I am wondering if the Economics IB course is required to be taken if I wish to study Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Business Management, etc. in Universities in Canada/America. I am currently studying in Sweden. I am also taking Math Studies.
  10. Hello, I paid the application fee for Ryerson University through 105F application already and got my ID MyRyerson account. However, I do not see any portal for submitting IB predicted grades. Does Ryerson not accept IB predicted grades? I also thought I could fulfill my English requirement through my predicted grade of 7 for IB Language and Literature A class. But on most of their webpages for both the subject and the English requirement, they only show the requirements for those who have COMPLETED the IB Diploma but I am due to complete IB this May 2018 and the application is due Feb 1. I am freaking out!! Will I not get accepted?? I have a predicted overall of 40 / 45. Please let me know because I am really confused Thank you
  11. Ok so I originally declared my subject as history because it definitely makes sense to me to declare it history, but now one of my teacher's is saying that my ee is on the border of history and cultural and social anthropology, and i really don't want to go through the whole expensive process of changing my subject for $200 USD when I would still have to rewrite my EE whether i change the topic or not. My RQ is: To what extent did European colonization impact the traditional roles of Indigenous women of Canada Basically I said that with European colonization, Indigenous society shifted from a matriarchal society to a patriarchal society which significantly degraded women. However, I agree with my teachers saying that my essay was too narrative without a strong thesis. My outline included: - pre-colonial customs -European perceptions -Implementation of Change: missionaries and political influence After some brainstorming, I changed my RQ to To what extent can the success of European colonization of Canada be attributed to the diminishing authority of Indigenous women? My outline would follow the same previous format but with a stronger focus on cause and effect, so like religious, political, social, and economic factors which contributed to European colonization. However, my timeframe is from 1632-1876; is this timeframe too broad? The bulk of my information is from 1850-76 for government legislation, but I thought it was really important to include missionaries which were prominent in the 1600s. Overall, is this change enough for my subject to be history? I still have to add historiography and more info.
  12. Hello all, Long story short I dropped the full IB diploma a few days ago and I am now currently doing the IB certificate. I am doing 6 subjects, 4 SL's and 2 Hl's. I dropped Biology HL to SL, it was just too much content for me to handle. Anyways, my question is will I be able to get admitted into a good school? I'm focusing more on Canada than America in terms of schools. I am in my second year of IB and my current score is 26 but I'm trying to push it up. My counselor and I emailed most of my American schools and they mostly said they don't care about whether it's the full diploma or certificate but 1. I don't have very high grades and 2. My SAT score is not that competitive. Right now I seriously feel like I'm not going to get accepted anywhere and my parents will kill me. I'm so disappointed in myself but I'm trying to push through. Please tell me if you think I'll have a shot at getting accepted. Also please feel free to add any schools you would think I have a shot at. For Canada I'm looking at University of Calgary, UBC, Queens, Thompson Rivers, Western University , Brock, York and University of Ottawa. I was also thinking of University of Sydney in Australia but I'm not sure...
  13. I was predicted a 35.

  14. Hi everyone, I am currently in 12th grade and doing the IB as well as the international Abitur. I've completed my Biology and Math IA and almost completed CAS. However, I am scared of all things that will come in the future like FOAs and all the exams, etc. Doing the IB isn't doing double the work though because my school combines a lot of stuff. That is why you can't choose which HL and SL topics you want, these are decided for you. Things like the EE are still something I am working on. However, I'm not entirely done yet. I want to study in Canada, Manitoba. Will they accept me with the International Abitur only? What should I do? Regards!
  15. Will someone who lets say gets 24 points be eligible to go to university?
  16. Hi everyone, Because we are writing our mock exams in about two weeks I've been wondering whether they are essential for applying to university in Canada or not. I have been studying for approx. two weeks now and I am simply scared because I don't feel like I am ready for it and I'm scared my life depends on it. Any explanations on that matter would help me a lot! Kind regards, Amekara PS: Of course I'm talking about the predicted grades while referring to the mock exam.
  17. Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good day Well...I'm going to get straight to the point, I'm scared about whether or not I'll be going to Uni next fall. Basically I'm a full diploma student in a foreign country, my family moves around quite a lot due to my dad's job. I'll be going to 12 Grade next week, so far I'm surviving IB and meeting deadline in terms of EE, CAS, IA's or TOK.. I had terrible to decent marks in 9th & 10th grade, I got mostly 3's,4's,5's and a few 6's (I did the MYP). I switched schools after 10th grade and moved to a new country and honestly It was pretty horrible in the beginning I hated it but I eventually got over it as I realized I'm almost done with school. So much **** happened in 11th grade my first semester was better than my second and I was really motivated at the beginning of the second semester but some stuff happened and i stopped caring, I accept responsibility and I realized how much I've screwed up my life I barely passed my end of year exams but I've worked on myself this past summer, I read ahead, I went over my textbooks and I'm going to be more serious this coming year and make it count! I'm scared no university or college will accept me, my ECA's are varied I have done, vball, tennis, art club, debate team, MUN, and I did an intern ship this summer and I plan to possibly do more this coming semester, my community service works are good too. I'm seriously worried for myself, I can't let my parents down! Especially after they have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on my education and some of my cousins aren't even able to afford school fees. I was really dissapointed in myself and I was actually considering suicide if I don't get admission. Community college is not an option for me. (not that there is any thing wrong with community college). I've been looking at schools in the US and Canada. for Canada I'm looking at: University Manitoba, York University, Western University, Mcmaster, TRU, Ryerson University, Brock University . (I really want to go to UBC or Mcgill but I know it's probably a stretch) for USA : NYU, The New School, Elon, Highpoint, Northeastern, Temple University, Rollins College, Penn State, Arizona State, Washington State, DePaul university and many more. I really want to go to college, I now know myself as a person and I have so much potential, all my teachers say it. I didn't put in the effort back then but I am now. Please, please chance me! please be thoroughly honest. I'm also going to be taking the SAT in October, I took SAT prep classes during the summer and got a 1100 which I've been trying to improve. *UPDATES: I dropped the full IB Diploma, I'm now a certificate student. I got into a few schools... Thompson Rivers University in Canada, Temple University, University of Tampa, Suffolk University and Quinnipiac University in the US. So if anyone else is going through something similar just know that there is hope. I'm just waiting to hear from more Canadian universities as Canadian schools are now my main priority.
  18. I heard that the acceptance rates of IB students into institutions are higher compared to the total population acceptance rates? I wanted to know if this is actually true or not because I also heard that its not...If this is true, does it apply to USA and Canada universities ?
  19. Hello, I'm an international student currently living abroad doing the IB program. I'm in Grade 11 and I have a few concerns about university. I'm fluent in French but English is my first language. I have plans to study either international relations or psychology in university. I'm very worried that I won't even get admitted into any college or Uni... I messed up in MYP (grades 9 & 10) honestly I didn't think the first two years of high school would be that important. After grade 10 I moved schools, I started out the first semester pretty well I was trying harder but then all of a sudden my grades fell and I don't think I did too well on my end of year exams. I am doing the full IB diploma so I have started my IA's and my EE is going pretty well I haven't missed any deadlines.. I want to know if there is still hope for me to get into a decent university with my lowish grades.. this summer I plan to do nothing but work, I'm getting a tutor for my weaker subjects such as math and bio. Next year I know I can improve but I don't know if it will change anything considering I have already messed up grades 9-11..I'm usually a 4/5 grade student with the occasional 6 or 3. I know I can do so much better though and I'll try my hardest. On the other hand I have good extra curriculars, also this summer I plan on taking SAT classes I'm aiming for at least 1200! I have done MUN I'm on the tennis team Volleyball team Track team Yearbook Debate team I took part in a Global youth summit for international schools (in 2016 and in 2017) And I also have good Community service record due to CAS. I have also volunteered at an animal shelter and an orphanage several times My uni choices so far are: USA: UCLA NYU The New School (NY) Lynn University Loyola Marymount university Roosevelt University DePaul University Wake Forest University Elon University Florida International University Colgate University Northeastern University American University Canada: UBC Uni Manitoba Uni of Toronto Western University Uni of Waterloo York University Queens university Do you think that there is still a chance I can get into these schools if I do better next year? I know next year is senior year and that colleges usually look at junior year the most but please please please give me your inputs. Please note that I'm not applying to all of these schools.. I'm trying to narrow down my list. My Subjects are HL: Literature Biology History SL: Spanish Ab ESS Math studies
  20. My School is so f**ked up that form half term of grade 11 it changed the board to IB from a really easy one, so the transaction wasn't smooth and I had to pick some rough subjects as HL: Maths, Computer science, B&M SL; English,Second language(Hindi),Physics So now I am worried for my PG and I don't think so that I will get more than 30 points so can anyone suggest some Canadian universities which accept less than 30 pointers. THANK YOU ADVANCE
  21. Are there any universities in Canada offer 50%+ scholarship for tuition fee (particularly on business management related course)? If there are, what are they and what are the min requirements to apply for one Thanks in advance
  22. Hi Everyone, So I'm a Canadian student and my goal is to get into the Life Science program at Mac. I initially really wanted to do Health Sciences but it seems very competitive. Are there any Canadian IB students here who are doing the Life Science program? Has IB helped you with admission or just generally throughout Uni? I want to become a neurosurgeon and I guess this would be my starting point, not sure if the Health Science program would be more ideal for this occupation as well? Any advice and tips would be appreciated!
  23. Hi, I'm currently a G11 student and I'm planning to study sociology and/or philosophy in collage, just want to ask how much score should I get so that I have a high chance getting in UT? My Maths is Maths studies, does that affect my application?
  24. I recently got accepted into 2 IB schools in my region, one in the regular school board and one in the catholic school board. This year, our board announced that there would be 4 new schools to the 1 (I am in the York Region District School Board) already in place. Is it ok to go to a school which is starting it's IB program next year and is still training teachers? I can't say it is a too stellar school outside of the IB program. I would love to go to the school in the Catholic School board, but it is too far for my parents to drive and is a 1 hr and 15 min bus ride.
  25. 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?
