The following updates are important for potential graduates:
- The literacy requirement has been waived for 2020-2021 graduates this year.
- Community involvement hours have been reduced from 40 to 20 hours for graduates this year. Students are encouraged to participate in virtual community involvement opportunities (www.sparkontario.ca or www.volunteertoronto.ca)
- Given that many schools have moved to a Quadmester system, most universities will make conditional offers of admission on a rolling basis using a combination of Grade 11 and available Grade 12 marks.
