After entering high school, it is recommended to start preparing for college applications. For students who want to apply for prestigious schools, the latest preparation time should not be later than grade 11 (that is, the corresponding high school in China). The major courses required by each major will be different, and it is necessary to determine the course planning and activity arrangement according to the target major as early as possible. Relevant majors with work requirements need to plan in advance the works that need to be provided. If you wait until the Year 12 application is open to start preparation, there may be a mismatch between courses, activities and work preparations, etc., which may lead to delays in admissions.
For students graduating from ordinary high schools in China, IELTS is a must. Most schools require an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, with no individual item lower than 6. If the applicant is in high school in Canada, but the duration is less than four years, the University of Toronto and UBC need to provide additional IELTS scores. If the applicant starts studying in Canada in the ninth grade and has completed four full-time studies in Canada, there is a chance that no additional IELTS scores will be provided. If you come to Canada late or less than 4 years, you need IELTS . Personally recommend Score 7 for most of universities courses.
Volunteering is not only a necessary part of applying for a university, but also a prerequisite for students to graduate from high school. This is different from China's test-oriented education. North American universities attach great importance to the all-round development of children. Students with excellent grades are not necessarily more likely to be admitted than students with rich activities. It is very helpful to apply for universities to develop your specialties, enrich your extracurricular life, and increase your social experience according to your personal interests.
Volunteers can make targeted arrangements according to the major they want to apply for. While improving their grades, they can participate in various activities inside and outside the school to improve their competitiveness. Here, everyone should not be limited to volunteering or participating in competitions, participating in targeted summer camps and winter camps, and mastering a musical instrument proficiently. These are all bonus points. For example, some students may have shown some special artistic expertise since childhood. , these are very helpful for the application. Hours should be more than 40 and 100+ is a good range.
