Calculus 12 Mark Help!!

Hi, I am a current student residing in BC who is applying to UBC, Queens, Mcmaster, UWaterloo, Uottawa, SFU, and Western for Business-Commerce. (Not too sure about UofT yet..) My top choices are Queens and UBC Sauder! Mathematics has never been one of my strong points throughout my life, but I am passionate about pursuing a career in business (my backup plan is law). 

However, I feel like my Calculus 12 mark may be hindering my ability to gain admission to university. 

Sidenote: I think I have pretty good ECs including winning business case competitions, exec positions is various organizations and business conference planning committees, volunteering and leading school clubs. 

My projected term 1 marks are:
Law: 100 
French: 90 
AP Literature: 94 
Pre-calc: 95 
AP Bio: 93 
AP Psych: 94 
Chem: 93 
Calculus: 80 (This is my biggest concern, I really do find the material quite difficult) 

I am applying early action, where term 1 marks will be looked at. 

However, my calculus teacher does have a policy where if I do well on the Mid-term in December (which is term 2) that mark will replace the lowest test mark previously, which is good since there was a test that I did extremely bad on, so I guess there will be a chance for improvement, but then would I be considered for regular action

Will my calculus mark substantially hinder my ability to get in and what are some tips to improve it? 

Thank you!!

  1. Don't go into any quantitative-heavy business program (accounting, finance, etc.) if you can't do high school math. You'll get anally violated. Also, law isn't a backup plan.
