GPA Requirements for UBC - Canada on my mind!

Pals, I'm branching out internationally and eyeing the University of British Columbia. Does anyone know what kind of GPA UBC expects from their applicants? Share some wisdom, eh?

It's wonderful that you're considering an international experience for your college education. The University of British Columbia (UBC) is indeed a great choice with its diverse programs and beautiful campus. UBC, like many universities, looks for students who demonstrate strong academic potential.

While they don't have a strict GPA cutoff, successful applicants typically have a strong academic record. Historically, admitted students tend to have an average GPA in the A range, which translates to a numeric grade of about 80% or higher in Canadian terms.

However, remember that UBC also factors in the rigor of your high school curriculum along with your grades. So doing well in advanced courses like AP or IB can be beneficial. Also, through their Personal Profile section of the application, UBC assesses your extracurricular activities and personal experiences which allows you to showcase other aspects of your candidacy.

It's advisable to keep your GPA as high as possible, but also invest time in rounding out your application. Best of luck!
