Wanting to get into BCIT

Itscat Itscat (New) New

Hello everyone,

I decided to make this thread because I'm seeking advice and insight! I'm trying to get into BCIT and I'm a little bit worried because one of my elective is a fail. My other electives I managed to get a minimum of 80% in all. Will this fail mark hinder me from getting into the nursing program?

It might help if you told us what BCIT is.

BCIT is a school ! It's the British Columbia Institute of Technology

You might have more luck posting in the Canada forum AND spelling out the name of the school in the title. You'll likely get more response.

The minimum grade accepted for the electives is 67% so I don't think you would have a complete application.

Academic Foundations requirement: Completion of 18.0 university credits with a minimum of (67%) in each of the following courses:

  • ENGL 1177 Academic Writing or a first-year transferable English composition course* (3.0 credits)
  • Anatomy & Physiology* - must have been completed within the past 3 years (6.0 credits)
  • PSYC 1101 Introductory Psychology 1 or an equivalent Psychology course* (3.0 credits)
  • General Education [PDF] electives at a 100 level minimum in at least 2 different academic disciplines (6.0 credits)

Thank you for your reply! I will be taking more electives so that I have at least 6.0 credit electives with the minimum 67%

Excellent! BCIT takes into consideration work/volunteer experience as well so even if you don't have the most competitive grades you will still have a shot. Good luck :)

Great! I do have a ton of volunteer and was also community leader at my previous job so hopefully that helps me out a bunch! Thank you for your help!
