Entrance requirements

Applicants must meet all entrance requirements and will be accepted on a first qualified basis as long as space remains. Applications are considered for a specific intake.

Chemistry and Physics Technology Entry (TE) course offerings:

All TE students are required to take both chemistry and physics. Your follow up program choice, TE term and science prerequisites will determine your TE science course grade level:

  • Fall term (September intake): Only grade 11 level chemistry and physics are offered. The grade 11 level science courses do not require additional science entrance requirements.

  • Winter term (January intake): Both grade 11 and grade 12 level chemistry and physics are offered. Applicants requiring grade 12 level chemistry and physics courses must meet the following additional entrance requirements:

    • Chemistry 11 (60%)
    • Physics 11 (60%)

  • Note: Applicants to the Technology Entry program should be aware of their desired follow-up program's science prerequisites and choose to register in either grade 11 or grade 12 level physics and chemistry accordingly. There is not an option to combine the grade 11 and 12 sciences. Space is extremely limited in the grade 12 science stream. It is strongly recommended that applicants requiring Physics 12 and/or Chemistry 12 apply as early as possible to the January intake.
