How to use Summer School to help your University chances:
1. DON'T take a new tough class in summer school because even if you take it in grade 12, post-secondaries will see your final mark and use it.
2. DO take a course a second time as only your best mark will show up on your transcript. Because post-secondaries don't pull information until you apply the information as to how often you took something is hidden.
3. DO take a course that you feel confident you'll do well in to help boost your "Academic five" courses for applications.
Marks come out the Thursday before spring break, so it's a great time to start thinking about summer school decisions.
