Karany Sivakumaran
01:01:13
Does it affect our acceptance
Cheran Selvarajah
01:02:12
So in terms of when you apply to uni, do they strictly look at your 6 courses or do they still check all grade 12 courses that we took. Also if unis check your average, is that only the average of your 6? Or your overall grade 12 average?
Connie Yung

Just following up, So if you apply for a conditional acceptance (like with your grade 11 marks), and universities decline your offer. Does it look bad to them if you reapply to the same program in grade 12?
Adhitya Raghavan
01:06:56
