I completed my A Levels with A*, B, B

I want to study biology or biomedical studies in Canada. Some of the universities I applied to are York University and University of Windsor.

I don't really know what is considered excellent or not overseas, so can anyone tell me if my grades are good/bad/safe? Do I have a genuine chance with these grades for my program? I'm passionate for biology, my A* was for bio.

These universities stated that a minimum of C's are needed, but I don't know what's considered competitive.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Any opinions or experience too

The best thing to do would be to speak to the university to get some advice. This forum is aimed at UK applicants therefore you're unlikely to get an accurate picture of what the typical applicant applies with.
