  1. What practice questions are you referring to?
  2. Hey! I have been trying to confirm course requirements for upgrading GPA with UofT but I am getting inconsistent answers. One person told me via email that the following are merely a recommendation and taking a 1st year or 2nd year course will not have a negative impact : "Any upgrades completed should be at the senior (3rd or 4th year) level, unless they are prerequisite courses.Prerequisite courses are permitted to be at the 1st and 2nd year level. We also recommend that applicants take courses in the life sciences/social sciences/humanities, as these subjects are most relevant to the PT program." However when I called them, another person on the line told me that you are expected to take 3rd or 4th level courses and will be evaluated as a less attractive applicant if 1st or 2nd year courses are taken. Did you ever get an answer to this question? Does UofT only want 3rd or 4th level courses in any area of study?
  3. Hey! I have contacted ORPAS about this and they accept summer courses which are deemed equal to courses taken in the fall or winter semesters. They can be counted towards your last 10/20 for sure. I was wondering if you or anyone else had any experience with upgrading marks for UofT.

Does anyone have any experience with this? What is the consensus? Do they have to be 3rd or higher level in any area of study? Or do they have to be in life/social sciences?
  4. Thanks for the willingness to help. After spending some hours on the phone with ORPAS I managed to get the info I needed from them. They were incredibly unwilling to help, not really sure why their GPA calculations are such a mystery.

  5. This definitely takes me to a question that ORPAS was incapable to answer for me. I am hoping to shift out of my second year completely which should be possible by taking these courses easily as I will have 20 courses in the past but because I went to University of Guelph, my GPA calculation is highly subjective even to ORPAS. When I discussed this with ORPAS they were not very helpful in terms of how this could be calculated. Do you mind if I shoot you a PM? Certainly looking for courses I will enjoy doing! Thanks for the link, I will take a look! Much appreciated :)
  6. Hi all, I am planning out my fall semester and was thinking about taking 3 or 4 online courses to increase my GPA for applications in December. Do you have any recommendations for online courses that are worth considering particularly in the 3rd year or higher? I heard good things about Athabasca courses but cannot find any specific threads. All the best
