Prerequisite courses and McGill's competitive admission process: 
  • Subjects must include mathematics and two of biology, chemistry, or physics in the Grade 2 or 3 level
  • Huikao exams in these subjects

You will be considered for admission on your high school transcript (Grades 1, 2 and midyear grade 3) and all available results of the Huikao exams.

The minimum requirements are averages of 85% or higher in each year and in all prerequisite courses. Many programs are more competitive and will require higher grades; applicants who present the minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission.

Applicants from Chinese provinces where the Huikao is not offered must present additional external information of their academic credentials, such as SATI and SATII scores. If admitted, you must then arrange for your school to send to McGill University an official final transcript of your complete high school record, the graduation certificate, and all final HUIKAO results.

If you write the GAOKAO, you must make arrangements to forward to us the final official results.

Minimum grades required for admission in previous year: 
Proof of English Proficiency: 

Transcripts and supporting documents should be uploaded directly to your file. For detailed instructions see

Additional supporting documents (such as recommendation letters and personal statements) are not used for admission consideration and should only be submitted if required by one of the programs to which you are applying.
