R Score Admission Standards for CEGEP Students: September 2014

The values listed below are not the grades that will be required for admission in September 2015. Rather, they are the lowest grades used for admission for September 2014; grades that are equal to or better than those listed do not guarantee admission for September 2015. Admission to McGill is competitive and subject to availability of space. As such, the minimum overall R Score required for entry may fluctuate up or down by as 2.0 points or more in any given year.

McGill reviews CEGEP applications for admission based on the overall cote R as determined by the Ministry as well as a core average of any prerequisite courses calculated by the Admissions Office. All results are taken into consideration, including those for any failed or repeated courses. The courses used in calculating the core average differ depending on the program to which you have you applied. For example, a science core average includes all 101 biology, 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry, and 203 physics. An engineering core average includes all 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry and 203 physics. A management core average includes all 201 mathematics courses. Please consult our website for more information on prerequisite courses.
