What transcript information do Ontario Universities use to determine if you will get an offer to a program?
For early admission; an Ontario University will look at your grade 11 marks.  If your grade 11 over-all average is high you may get a conditional early offer to a program of your choice pending your required 6 U/M grade 12 course marks and that you meet all other program and graduation requirements.

For regular admission, an Ontario University will look at your semester 1 final marks and your semester 2 mid-term marks to determine if you will get a conditional offer to a program of your choice.  Remember, all offers are conditional that you meet program and graduation requirements.
How can I can I get more information about Ontario Universities and their programs?
If you have a question about an Ontario University Program's requirements you should contact the University directly by calling or e-mail their admissions office.  All this information is on the University website.
Students are encouraged to visit the Ontario Universities Fair which takes place each year downtown Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  This is an opportunity for students to meet with Reprentatives of each Ontario University and ask specifice questions and get programs information.
