Doing Grade 12 English in summer school

For grade 9/10, I was a high 80/90 student without putting in much effort, but I knew that I would have to put the effort in grade 11. Unfortunately, I didn't realize how much effort I would need to put in, and I currently have a low 80 average with a 70 something in English. My plan is to take grade 12 English in summer school and devote all of my attention too it. English has always been my worst subject and the grade 12 teachers at our school mark harder than average from what I can tell. I want to take Computer Science/Software Engineering, will doing this affect my chances of getting into U of T or any other well-regarded university?

DON'T!!!! I talked to my teacher today and she said Waterloo came on a P.A. day to talk about how they will no longer be accepting applicants who complete any credits outside of day school (ie private, summer school, etc). Also U of T is starting to do this as well. I would just try hard in regular english, its rly not that bad as long as you read the books.

^This. OP, given your current grades do you think you can pull off mid 90s in Gr.12?

U of T and Waterloo engineering and computer science care. So, do some research before you take courses in summer school, night school, private school, etc. No other university cares so it probably won't matter. And, to be frank you probably won't have the grades to get into U of T and Waterloo - low to mid 90s in Gr.12 is the minimum.
