India Senior School Certificates

Admission review process

Applicants will be considered for admission on Class X Board exams (if written), school transcripts for Grade 10, 11 and mid-year 12 or, if already written, on the final Class XII Certificate. Positional grades and/or predicted grades are not used.

If admitted, you are expected to maintain your level of academic performance through to the completion of your pre-McGill studies.


Minimum grades and prerequisites

Applicants are reviewed on a minimum of four (4) academic courses. Note that courses of an applied/vocational/technical nature are not accepted. This includes (but is not limited to) subjects such as Dance, Home Science, Legal Studies, Painting, Physical Education.

The minimum requirements are overall averages and prerequisite subject requirements normally between 75% to the 85%, on in-progress grades and depending on the program applied to. Higher results are usually expected when final Class XII results are presented.

Admission to McGill is competitive and subject to availability of space and applicants who present the minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission.
