UNIVERSITIES              APPLY IN DECEMBER OF GRADE 12 YEAR

SFU        Faculty of Arts: Graduation which includes English 11, a minimum of 60% in English 12, an approved science 11, a
           language 11 (beginner's level is acceptable), a minimum of 60% in Math 11 Principles, and at least 3 more provincially
           examinable grade 12 and/or AP courses. For general entry, students will require an average of approximately 80% on
           English 12, plus three specified provincially grade 12 courses. (Students with averages below this percentage MIGHT
           qualify under the Diverse Qualifications category.) Students are advised to consult the website to ensure 12-level
           course selections meet both academic and breadth requirements.
           Faculty of Science: English 11, Chemistry 11, Physics 11, a language 11 (beginner's level is acceptable), a minimum
           of 60% in Math 11 and Math 12 Principles, a minimum of 60% in English 12, and at least 3 more provincially
           examinable grade 12 and/or AP courses. Admission average of approximately 80% based on En 12, Math 12
           Principles, plus the two best grade 12 science subjects (chosen from Bi 12, Chem 12, Geography 12, and Ph 12).
           Direct Entry is also available for Business, Communication, Computing Science, Engineering Science, Health
           Science, Environmental Science, and Kinesiology. See website for specific requirements.
           Provincial exams are optional (except where required for graduation) – exam results will only be used if they increase a

           and one other provincially examinable grade 12 course. In recent years, the minimum overall average in the four
           required grade 12 courses has been over 85%. Students with Calculus 12 can take a different math than students who
           did not complete Calculus 12 – check the UBC calendar for more details. If a science student does not have Biology 11
           or Biology 12, a biology course must be taken at the university.
