Well, I live in Quebec and for those who do not know the system I will provide you a little description:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In Quebec, we graduate with an equivalency of an 11th grade. After 11th grade, you must earn a CEGEP degree (2 years is the usual length) which is kind of the equivalent of a postgraduate degree, before pursuing to undergraduate. Now there are alternatives to that, but it is unnecessary to explain, for my question.

Leading on, Ottawa's university offers a chance for people in Quebec to go from their 11th grade to undergraduate. You must have an average of 85% in a variety of classes that relate to the course you are applying. Then again, they state that you may not be accepted even with those requirements. Although this seems quite interesting, especially since I have an average of 92% in most classes or higher, I wonder if this is a good idea. They ask us, for people applying in physics, to take an additional class for an introduction to calculus and vectors. Even if I can study during summer as well, I do not know if it is realistic to do the course.

What are your thoughts? Is this a good opportunity or it is going to be way too much work? This is going to be the program:
