    On my acceptane letter, it reads "Maintain ur current academic standard and obtain the IB diploma" I was accepted with a predicted score of 36/42 points.

    Im worried that i might not be able to get the same score in my final exams, and then ill lose the offer

    Can anyone clarify this?

    It all depends on how much your IB score will drop. As long as you achieve your IB diploma and get above a 34 you should be alright. My friend had a high IB predicted score, but he didn't do as well as expected, he still ended up going to McGill. I don't know if this would be different for international students or not.
    If you don't get the IB diploma, or If your grades drop below a 30, you wouldn't be accepted.

    He was applying to do sciences, I think he was predicted a 38 but he got a 34. So it was like a 4 point drop, but McGill will usually take IB students if they have a score of 32 or higher.

    I think as long as you dont monumentally F*** up your finals they will accept you, I'm currently in the same position for Arts. I went to the international student meeting in London by Mcgill last week and everything they said was extremely positive towards the IB diploma as a whole. Just the fact that by doing the IB means you enter straight into 'U1' (effectively 1st year) rather than 'U0' (like a foundation year) shows that they WANT and recognise IB students, as they should. So I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you are very sure you will miss your predictions by a long way, and even then give them a ring and who knows.
