Hey everyone! I just had a quick question with how my GPA would be calculated if I applied to U of T law. So right now I am studying at UBC and I got credits from studying the IB in high school so I planned to graduate in 3 years. The thing is, I decided to do co-op during my degree, meaning that I would graduate in 4 years.


So, lets say in my third year I did a semester of co-op in the fall and a semester of classes during the winter term, would that count as one of my years in the Best out of three for U of T?


My schedule would look something like this

27 credits from the IB


1st year: Full time student 27 credits

2nd year: Full time student 30 credits

3rd year: Co-op term and then school term with 15 credits

4th year: Co-op term and then school term with 15 credits.


I hope I was clear and good luck with admissions to all of you! :)

They'd probably look at 3 years' worth of a full courseload. That's my guess. We count our credits totally differently here.
