Can I Get a McGill Scholarship?

Hi everybody,I am interested in the Biological, Biomedical, Life Sciences field at McGill, which I saw last year, cutoffs were 93.8%. I was wondering if any of you can give me any sort of guidance as to whether or not I have the chance of getting accepted and a scholarship? 

 My grade 11 marks are: 
Chemistry: 88 
Physics: 85 
Pre-Calculus 11: 97 
English: 95 
Social Studies: 92 
Religion: 94 
French: 90 
Planning: 94 
Average: 91.8%

 My grade 12 marks are: 
Pre-calculus 12: 100 
Calculus: 93 
Chemistry: 96 
English: 94 
AP Psychology: 98 
Religion: 99 
Physical Education: 100 
Biology: 91 
Average: 96.3 
My top 5 academics are Chem, Pre-Calc, English, AP Psychology and Biology, giving me an average of 95.8. 

 For extracurriculars, ive been on my school’s general student council for two years, and now am in the executive student council for my final year of high school. I also take part in various clubs and volunteer at a hospital regulary, along with other organizations. 

 Is the likelihood of me getting accepted into that field, let alone McGill, knowing how competitive it is, likely? Along with receiving a scholarship even though my grade 11 marks arent as high? Also, despite biology being my lowest mark, would that affect my acceptance into that field of study? I’m going to be writing another test soon, so hopefully I do well on that to boost up my mark prior to my application. I’ve been stressing out about this for the longest time, so any source of guidance will help out greatly! 

 Thank you!

  1. You cannot get an entrance scholarship at mcgill since you do not have a 95% average for grade 11 and 12. Other competitive scholarships I am unsure
