  1. I would follow the current policy, though I wouldn't surprised if they revised it.
  2. Les gens qui ont une note plus faible demanderont fort probablement pour la note S/É. Je ne m'attend pas à des cotes fantastiques même avec des A+.
  3. Thinking about the "cote R" for french schools, and how drastically higher group averages (people with lower grades will probably ask for a P/F) will make any grades under A/A+ worthless.
  4. To have your grade transferred you'd likely need a letter of permission from your home institution.
  5. It's not that complex. CEGEP R score a pretty basic standard score; it only factors in your grades, your group grades and grade dispersion. While not holistic, nor perfect, it an approach to grade biases that is methodological. It can however promote a pretty toxic class environment, for obvious reasons. University R score calculation is, on the other hand, a little more convoluted and biased, in that each institution evaluates candidates programs and home institutions differently, defeating the purpose of a standard score.
  6. Universités anglophones: "Votre choix de programme n'est pas important pour le bureau d'admission. Nous accueillons les candidats de tous acabits et encourageons la diversité d'expériences et de formations." Universités francophones:
  7. Closer to 1200$ with the lab fees and examination fees.
  8. Si annulation de session il y aura, ça sera la session d’été. Les institutions voudront assurer la complétion de la session d’hiver 2020 et maintenir le plus possible l’organisation normale de l’année académique 2020-2021.
  9. Athabasca offers courses with home labs, but McGill is kind of ambiguous on whether they accept them or not and Ottawa clearly state that they do not accept home labs. I know UdeM is considering canceling their summer semester to focus on completing the current winter semester and guaranteeing a “normal” 2020-2021 academic year.
  10. Je ne m’avancerai pas trop à quel programme sa majeure correspondra selon évaluation du service de l'admission, mais quelques points à considérer: Le bac en Neuroscience cognitive de l'Udem et le bac en Psychologie de l'UdeM sont des BSc. Les désignations de grade BA et BSc importent très peu en pratique. C'est propre à l'institution et la faculté d'attache des cours (une université peut rattacher ces cours de géographie aux sciences humaines alors qu'une autre les classe en sciences pures). Behavioural Neuroscience est une orientation du baccalauréat en psychologie de Concordia, elle graduera avec un bac en psychologie. De fait, les cours du cheminement Behavioural Neuroscience chevauchent davantage ceux du bac en Neuroscience cognitive de la Faculté d'arts et sciences que ceux du bac en Neurosciences de la Faculté de médecine.
  11. Non, présentement les réponses rentrent quand même. Cela dit le traitement sera définitivement ralenti considérant les modalités de travail actuelles des employés du service à l'admission.
  12. I wonder if McGill (and other schools like Ottawa) will exempt applicants from lab requirements for the coming admission cycle. I know there's a possibility that universities in Quebec will cancel their summer 2020 semester to salvage the winter semester and keep the 2020-2021 academic year as is. Some schools are also considering providing substantially more courses online for the next academic year, and delaying some typically in-person courses to summer 2021. In a lot of cases the infrastructure is already in place, but the staff isn't necessarily trained or experienced with online education. What labs do you need? All 7 of them? BIOL 227 is 3 credits, shouldn't it work fine as either a bio I+II lab, bio I lab or bio II lab?
  13. Hello, I'm looking for the grade conversion table used to evaluate our admission averages. My school works on a A+/4.3 scale. Anyone know where I can find it? @phuturefarmacist?
  14. Tokyo medical school 'changed test scores to keep women out' University allegedly accepts fewer female students owing to concerns they quit sooner Associated Press in Tokyo Thu 2 Aug 2018 16.04 BST Last modified on Thu 2 Aug 2018 20.00 BST A Japanese medical university has systematically discriminated against female applicants because women tend to quit as doctors after starting families, media reports have alleged. The Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said Tokyo Medical University had manipulated the entrance exam results of women since about 2011 to keep the female student population low. Quoting unidentified sources, it said the manipulation started after the proportion of successful applicants who were women reached 38% in 2010. Other Japanese media, including NHK and Kyodo News, also reported claims of exam manipulation. Quoting unnamed sources, NHK said female applicants’ scores were slashed by about 10% in some years. The allegation surfaced during the university’s investigation of a separate scandal in which its former director was accused of granting admission to the son of a senior education bureaucrat in exchange for a favour. The school’s public affairs department said officials were surprised by the Yomiuri Shimbun report and had no knowledge of the reported manipulation. It promised to look into the matter. Yoshiko Maeda, the head of the Japan Medical Women’s Association, said it was astonishing that women were being stripped of their right to seek entry to the medical profession. “Instead of worrying about women quitting jobs, they should do more to create an environment where women can keep working,” Maeda said in a statement on the association’s Facebook page. “And we need working-style reform, which is not just to prevent overwork deaths but to create a workplace where everyone can perform to the best of their ability regardless of gender.” In Japan, many female graduates face discrimination in hiring and pay. Long working hours and lack of support in child-rearing from their husbands often force them to give up their careers. As ages and birth rates remain low, many workplaces including hospitals are chronically short-staffed. This year a health, labour and welfare ministry panel urged medical institutions to allow more flexible working environments and support for female doctors so they could return to work after maternity leave and balance work and family. Women account for more than 40% of the overall workforce, but the share of female doctors who have passed the national medical exam has been stuck at about 30% for more than 20 years. The slow progress in medicine has prompted speculation among some doctors about possible widespread interference in the school admissions process. The education minister, Yoshimasa Hayashi, said: “Entrance exams that unfairly discriminate against women are absolutely not acceptable.” He said the ministry would decide on its response after receiving the results of an investigation from the school. In Japan, medical graduates usually end up working at school-affiliated hospitals. According to the Yomiuri Shimbun, the Tokyo school started to restrict the proportion of women in each class to about 30% by manipulating test scores thereby failing more women. Admissions records released to the Associated Press by the school show the percentage of women who passed the entrance exam rose from 24% in 2009 to 38% in 2010. The figure has since stayed below that level, falling to 18% this year. The percentage of female applicants who were accepted this year was 2.9%, compared with 8.8% of male applicants.
