University Application
Canada
Full time students in Canada, who apply to Canadian universities as Ontario local high school students, should complete application form 101 through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) instead of the form 105 for international students. This definitely provides better benefits such as local admission positions and admission ratios.
Commonwealth of Nations
Full time students in Canada with six OSSD grade 12 university preparation courses can send the application directly without any A-Level exam results or having to complete the one-year pre-credit requirement. Students are also able to enjoy the benefit of higher acceptance rates within Commonwealth of Nations.
United States
Full time students in Canada who possess six OSSD university preparation courses are able to apply to a number of U.S universities directly without the need of having SAT scores which is required for students in America; therefore, avoiding fierce competition with students from Mainland China.
Asia
Full time students in Canada who want to apply for top universities in Asia, such as the ones in Hong Kong and Singapore do not need to provide language test results from IELTS/TOEFL tests. Their final grades in six OSSD grade 12 university preparation courses will fulfill the language requirement.
