  1. Hey everyone, I wonder if anybody still uses their accounts. I just felt so nostalgic because this topic was started when we wanted to get into high school and look at us now! We're about to graduate!! I was wondering if anyone would like to share how your high school journey went
  2. Hello, I'm a Canadian student in IB and pretty familiar with the universities you mentioned. If you have any specific questions, feel free to private message me.
  3. Hey, I'd be glad to help! However, it has been 4 years since I wrote the entrance exams (wow I'm graduating this year it's crazy how I made it through haha), so do be careful about things I say regarding the test etc. If you're only asking about St.Robs, make sure to check their info website or the slides they always publish regarding you year's specific details. They usually publish how many students they are accepting and any additional info. But I will respond to your questions from my experience. The test is technically at the grade 8 level, but I would say it is harder than w
  4. Hello there! Don't worry about Vic Park as their acceptances are very generous! As for applying to every IB school, that only applies to YRDSB and not TDSB. From what I recall from when I applied, there is no french section. The test is simply a math section and they require you to write a 500 words essay at home and bring a physical copy of it with you to your exam. All of this information can be found on their website. However, there is an interview conducted in French if you pass round 1. Don't worry though because the IB coordinator is very nice and easy to converse with! If you have
  5. The textbooks will be provided. You use the same textbooks as the academic classes (pre IB is no different from academic science wise). Also depending on your teacher, they may also provide you coursepacks.
  6. HL physics is one of the hardest science, but HL Bio is mainly memorization based, so taking those 2 should be fine in terms of difficulty. EXCEPT, my main concern for you is... you're not taking chemistry. My school a totally doesnt allow us to take bio without chemistry because half of the bio course is biochemistry and you need the foundation taught in chem to be able to fully understand the biochem part. But if there is no way for you to take chem and you're really keen on taking physics and bio, its do able, but might require a lot of self studying for bio.
  7. I know 2 people in my grade that were accepted from waitlist. I wouldn't have my hope up because as you probably know, Bayview is an extremely competitive IB school. I'm part of the IB committee and I have to say, I've been hearing endless calls currently by parents who are asking why their child is on the waitlist, and honestly, it's not that your average isnt good enough. It's great in fact! Bayview simply doesnt have enough space to accept everyone. However, your waitlist status does depend on whether all candidates accept their offers, if many people dont, future acceptances will be contac
  8. Hi! I remember when I was in your shoes...the good old days...jk. I wrote both the St.Rob and BSS exam and I would say...if you don’t struggle with French, Bayview’s exam is easier. I don’t exactly remember the layout/time breakdown, but you should be able to find that information on the school’s respective websites. St.Rob’s exam is taken out of the CAT practice book (they literally give you the book on exam day and tell you what page to do). So if you are worrying a lot, you could see if you can obtain a copy and do some practices. St.Rob accepts around 180 students a year and in m
  9. Hey!! Welcome to Bayview haha, I’m entering grade 11, my first real year of IB in September. I remember when I was in your shoes, prepping for the so called prestigious program, Le IB. There really isn’t much to worry about as the teachers make the transition to high school really smooth. However, I would recommend going over some French, particularly grammar as that is a VERY big portion of French at Bayview. Other than that, there isn’t much you can prep for at the moment, so do have a good summer before high school! I do have to warn you tho...math will come by very rough...
  10. That’s good! I’m sure you did great, best of luck!
  11. Congrats!! I think the lady you interview with is Ms.Baque, but I could be wrong. As you may have heard, the interview is mostly in french. Suggestion would be to see if she welcomes the idea of shaking hands. During the interview, she’ll ask very simple questions like what do you like to do in your free time, or what you will do/did during winter break. Try to talk in a relaxed manner and just look like you’re having fun, don’t be too nervous, she’s really nice! If you talk and don’t know a word, don’t be afraid to ask how to say a word, use “comment dit-on _(the word in English)__ en fr
  12. The acceptance requirements have changed so much that it’s fairly easy to get in. The most important factor is do you live near bayview if you’re coming from a Bayview feeder school?
  13. Yes sorry, I meant mostly there, typo. I don’t think your math has to be beyond grade 8 at most. Of course, it will have some grade 8 content as it is suppose to be challenging, but most of the concept should be covered already in grade 7. Don’t feel nervous and don’t sorry too much about the test, stressing won’t help much haha..check over everything, gather your supplies and material (DONT FORGET YOUR REPORT CARD!!) and good luck tomorrow! P.S wear a watch to keep track of time
  14. Reviewing curriculum isn’t the most effective in my opinion since they’re all contest questions. I think the next practice would be doing past gauss questions. However, from my Past knowledge, I’m sure they consider the essay and report card more because I have friends who did not thenbest on the math test, but was still accepted
  15. If you’re strong with math, it’s pretty easy when I did it. There is a few part A, outlay part B, and ofc, some part C. I would say don’t stress too much about this math test. Just manage your time well and you should be fine. I would say the interview in french after counts a lot more. GL!
