I recently applied to McGill but I feel very pessimistic about my chances of getting an offer. I have 4A*s, 3As, 3Bs and a C at O level (pretty average) and bbbb at AS level in Maths, and the sciences. I applied for Physics. Since McGill didn't ask for any extracurriculars it all depends on the grades.. so do I stand a chance?

Hi!

I'm sure you will be able to - they are pretty good grades.
Have you sent off your application yet/ heard back from them?

I have also applied for McGill but for Liberal Arts (hoping to study History of Art and Italian) so quite different from you haha!

Where do you come from? I'm an applicant from York, UK and don't know any other British applicants. I went over to visit McGill in October and attended one of their Open House Days. They are really informative and if you want info about applying there and grades it might be useful to visit, or email some of the staff/application team with questions.

Which other universities are you applying to? I have applied to Cambridge, UCL, St Andrews, Exeter and the Courtauld Institute (in addition to McGill).

Thank you, I hope they at least give me a conditional offer..
And I applied a week ago and haven't heard back yet. They start sending offers in December, I think.

I am from Pakistan.

I have just applied to a couple of more unis, University of Victoria (Canada) and University of Groningen (Netherlands).

I hope you get into McGill and everywhere else you've applied! Good luck.

Yeah I think offers start coming through from December until March, so I'm assuming that I'll hear back sometime in the new year.

Are you taking your A2 exams this coming summer?

Good luck with your applications to McGill & your other universities too! Let me know when you hear back from McGill
