Self-reported grades

You are required to self-report your grades if you are:

  • applying to Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Arts, the B.A.&.Sc., Education, Engineering, Management, Nursing or Science, and
  • applying from a high school in Canada outside of Quebec and Ontario.

If you are in a combined high school / International Baccalaureate Diploma program, please arrange for your estimated IB results to be sent directly from your school to McGill.

Self-reported grades

The web form for submitting self-reported grades can be accessed with your Minerva PIN beginning January 6. Log in to Minerva and select the Applicant menu. For more information on self-reporting, contact Service Point.

Applicants will be considered for admission in two rounds. Those who are not granted admission in the first round will be considered in the second round.

  • All self-reported grades will eventually be verified against official grades from your school.
  • In case of a discrepancy between self-reported and official grades, the latter will be taken as the official version.
  • If you need to submit grade revisions or additions after submitting your self-reported-grades, these must be sent to McGill by email and must include your name and application number.
  • Admission decisions based on self-reported grades are subject to change without notice on the basis of official grades. In cases of significant discrepancies, the applicant may be required to provide an explanation.
  • McGill does not require interim transcripts as you will be self-reporting your grades online, including all grade 11 and grade 12 level academic courses.
  • Self-reporting grades will permit us to automatically consider you for a basic scholarship.
  • If you are applying for a major renewable entrance scholarship, you must not only self-report your grades online, but you must arrange for additional supporting documentation to be sent to McGill. Further information can be found at Scholarships and Student Aid.
