Hello, McGill's admissions requirements are so clear but somehow, I still have questions. I'm wondering if anyone has experience/answers for the following:
-If a student graduates high school early, do they consider marks from grade 9 and 10?
-Do the posted A- cutoffs (for math/science courses for the Science faculty) translate to an A- in the US grading scale (90%) or the Canadian grading scale (several points lower)? My daughter received one B+ (88%) in Biomedicine first semester of 9th grade (2nd semester was a 92/A-) and we are trying to figure out if she is not eligible for McGill because of this grade.
-If she is ineligible for Science because of that grade, she is considering Arts, but has one B from a one-semester gifted English class at Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth.
Overall, she has a 3.9 uGPA. She has not been able to take the SAT since 9th grade (1230) because of testing site availability, so she does not plan to report it since McGill is test optional this year.
We appreciate any insights/advice you may have about her situation!
