Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Students applying to U of T engineering

Students who have applied on OUAC to the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Toronto will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the required supplemental application.  For the regular round of admission, the submission deadline is February 1. Click here for a helpful overview.

In the Academic Profile section, go to Education System and add “International Baccalaureate.”  In the section for IB courses, there is a drop-down menu for Year 1 and Year 2 of the program. You only need to list your pre-requisite subjects.  For both Year 1and Year 2, choose predicted from the drop-down and for Year 1, select your June Year 11 grades. For Year 2, choose your most recent grade (either June Year 11 or January Year 12, depending on when you are submitting the application). Do not include plus/minus signs. The completion date will be May 2019 for both Year 1 and Year 2.

The university will receive your Ontario grades through OUAC so you do not need to list them.  If you took a pre-requisite course outside of Ontario, please contact your counsellor or Ms. Berndsen for instructions on how to list. Please contact Ms. Berndsen for a transcript to upload to your portal.

In the Other Information section, you should insert the following text under Special Circumstances: All IB diploma courses at Upper Canada College are taught over the final two years of a five-year high school program. Interim grades for the IB diploma program are reported in June of Year 11 and again in January and April of Year 12. Evaluation is cumulative over the two years of the diploma program.

It is important to recognize that the supplement requires students to answer three randomly generated questions. Two of these must be answered orally through an uploaded video. The other problem-solving question requires an essay answer of no more than 250 words, written online within a 10-minute period.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact your university counselor.
