  1. If you pass all the med preparatory year courses you are guarantied to go to first year. To pass a course you have to get minimum 60% per course. Don't get scared about it, 99% of the class goes to first year, the 1% is usually because of personal circumstances (disease, accident, taking care of a sick family member, etc...). Also, with the new program, its less heavy and more manageable, allowing you to continue extracurricular activities while still getting passing grades if not above. First and second year are pass or fail. But the premed grades don't matter that much knowing that some people (with a complete bachelor) go directly to first year. So no stress.
  2. Medschool isn't much about smartness but more about hard work. You are now in a field where you have a lot of informations to absorb in a very short amount of time. Its not anymore about who understands faster or more, but about who is willing to put enough effort to improve their knowledge, skills and capacities. We start all at the same starting point with no one ahead or behind, we all struggle and put all nighters when we have to. You are no longer in school to pass classes and have good grades, you are here now to try and learn the most of it, enjoy the most of it, and become a better yourself everyday. If before you could do things with less effort it's because the studying methods you used suited well the learning environment you were in. You could try and change the way you study. Maybe you feel like you put a lot of work because indeed you are putting too much work for not enough results, then ask around you, try and find out about other people's habits and learning/studying ways, you might find one that suits you better, giving you a little more free time to rest. But things won't ever get easier by themselves, as you progress you will have more things to learn, more things to do and less time to sleep or rest. Time management and efficient work will help you survive it and have time for other activities. Hard work is the first step, those first years are meant to make us learn as much as we can. After that, if you worked hard enough and well enough, you won't have to relearn it but will build new knowledge upon it as you go, therefore making it seem less draining and more exciting as you go. One thing is you shouldn't search for the method that gives good grades with less effort but the one that makes you learn more information and makes you retain it in the long term. Don't learn to pass exams, learn to become a doctor. Every one feel the same way, we all hav to work more, we signed for it, it will be okay as long as you feel it's worth it. Hope this can help you. best of luck
  3. Bonjour, à ce moment là tu sera considéré dans le contingent marché du travail. Je ne connais pas les prérequis de ce contingent mais tu peux toujours appeler l’université et leur poser des questions à ce sujet ou discuter avec des personnes aillant été acceptées dans ce contingent (exemple combien de personnes sont prises par années, qu’est ce qui est pris en compte au delà des notes car je pense que ton baggage en recherche est un atout). Renseigne toi avant d’entreprendre des démarches d’immigration pour être sûr de ta décision. dans tous les cas, bonne chance pour la suite
  4. Tu n’as pas besoin de faire de l’université pour rentrer en temps qu’étudiant international mais comme @Snowmen l’a dit il n’y a que très peu de places pour ce contingent, donc la première selection se fait sur la base de tes notes seulement. C’est le palier le plus dur à franchir car ils n’invitent en entrevue que très peu de personnes (comparé au contingent normal où des centaines de personnes sont convoqués aux entrevues, le contingent international n’en convoque qu’une dizaine). Je ne sais pas ce que tu veux dire par “notes pas top” mais malheureusement les notes universitaires restent toujours en consideration au quebec. Si tu fais un baccalauréat à l’université tu pourrais noyer un peu tes notes de licence et augmenter ta cote mais choisis un cheminement que tu es prêt à assumer comme carrière car rien ne te garantira de rentrer en med même après un bac vu les stats qui changent d’année en année. Une personne accepté il y a 3 ans aurait du mal à être acceptée aujourd’hui, les exigences augmentent et les candidats sont de plus en plus préparés d’année en année. Je ne veux pas te décourager, je veux juste que tu réalises que ce sera difficile et que même avec un dossier “parfait” rien ne garantit l’acceptation (il reste des MEMs à passer). Si tu as la residence permanent ou citoyenneté canadienne tu as plus de chances de rentrer. @Chiro94 Peux tu nous éclairer plus sur si tu es international ou resident permanent/canadien ça nous aidera à mieux te conseiller. bonne continuation
  5. Hi, Every medical/dental situation is different and requires to see a professional (here a dentist) in person to assess the problem and suggest solutions. I don't think we have here enough informations to help you find solutions. You should follow what your dentist suggested or consult another one to have a different opinion. you are still underaged so you should talk with your parents to see if that would be possible and to share your concerns. No professional would or should tell you if this is right or wrong over a simple description of what your dentist told you you have. They need to see it, touch it and have a lot more background informations and antecedents about you (from your parents and medical record) to piece things up together and suggest the best approach. I wish you to get things sorted out but internet is not the best place to get a diagnosis or verify if one is legit talk about it with your parents and dentist and ask them questions showing that it matters to you to understand why this or that treatment was recommended over another one best of luck
