If you’re a Grade 12 student affected by the BC teachers’ strike, you’re likely concerned how the strike — and the delay of the start of your school year — will impact your admission to UBC.
You don’t need to worry: at this point, UBC doesn’t anticipate the teachers’ strike having a negative effect on the admission process for 2015.
What is UBC doing to help?
UBC and other members of the British Columbia Registrar’s Association will work with impacted secondary school students to ensure that their admission to our programs is not negatively affected. This may include extending deadlines for receipt of final grades, or possibly accepting self-declared or interim grades on a temporary basis until official final grades are available.
UBC makes admission decisions for BC Grade 12 students based on grades information supplied in March 2015. As long as you have (at least some) senior-year grades by March, then it will be business as usual for us.
We realize this is a stressful time for Grade 12 students in BC. Rest assured we are doing everything we can to make your UBC application as worry-free as possible.
