Can I get into SFU with a 80 average?

The admission requirements for Simon Fraser University (SFU) vary depending on the program you are applying to. However, in general, a minimum average of 80% is considered competitive for admission to most undergraduate programs.

There are a few things you can do to improve your chances of getting into SFU with an 80 average:

  • Get involved in extracurricular activities. SFU looks for students who are well-rounded and have a passion for something outside of the classroom. Participating in extracurricular activities can show SFU that you are a well-rounded individual who is capable of managing your time effectively.
  • Write a strong personal statement. Your personal statement is an opportunity to tell SFU about yourself and why you are interested in attending their school. Be sure to highlight your strengths and accomplishments, and explain why SFU is a good fit for you.
  • Get strong letters of recommendation. Letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors, and other mentors can provide SFU with valuable insights into your character and academic abilities. Be sure to ask for letters of recommendation from people who know you well and can speak to your strengths.

Even if you do not have an average of 90%, you may still be able to get into SFU. The university looks at a variety of factors when making admissions decisions, and your average is just one of them. If you have strong grades in your core subjects, a strong personal statement, and letters of recommendation from strong recommenders, you may still be able to get into SFU.
