Question for PAST MCGILL APPLICANTS

Recommended Posts

Has anyone gotten accepted to McGill based on IB grades after their percentage grade didn't make the cut? How long did it take?

I feel like they are taking all the percentage-based admissions first and leaving the rest to check later...

I think the real question here is how are your IB grades higher than your percentage marks? In Canada, a 7 is usually the equivalent of a 99% so more times than not, your percentage are more favourable for admissions purposes than the IB requirements at Mgvill that are like 40/45 for engineering.

Canadian schools don't really care about IB grades, just your normal ones

They do care about them for your transfer credits but for admissions purposes more often than not they will just resort to your normal percentage equivalent grades.

It changes slightly from school to school but according to the admission officers from the university, they will look at the higher of the two grades.

Yeah exactly, but usually your percentage grades are higher.
