In summary, the speaker is a new student in grade 12 IB at a school in Vancouver. They received high marks in math, chemistry, and physics, but struggled in English due to being a non-native speaker. They are wondering about their chances of being accepted into the University of Toronto's Engineering science program and if they will be required to take the TOEFL exam. The speaker also mentions their other grades and courses, including math HL, mandarin, history, and Theory of Knowledge. They are unsure if these will affect their admission.

Your marks are good other than English. If you required to take TOEFL then I guess they will look at it. Though english is not the most determining factor, but you still should get it higher.(Hopefully 75)

Did you take cal and functions for math? And there's one more course I think. (they look at 6)
