UBC Admissions Update
Currently UBC evaluates prospective students using four program prerequisite, grade twelve approved courses, as well as the Personal Profile, for regular admission. Grade eleven grades in equivalent courses, in addition to any completed grade twelve courses, and the Personal Profile, are used for the evaluation of early round applicants. These protocols will continue to be used for the full application cycle this year i.e. our current grade twelve students.
Next year UBC will move to a new model of admissions assessment. This will affect our current grade eleven students. The changes include:
- Admission will be based on approximately 12-18 courses including at least 6 grade twelve courses (which will not be limited to UBC's 'Grade Twelve Approved Courses' list).
- All grade eleven and twelve courses will be included except for applied design, skill, technology, career education, and physical education.
- Lowest course grade will be omitted.
- A maximum of two visual and performing arts courses will be used for each of grade eleven and twelve.
