Additional Admission Criteria
Potential candidates for RMC are well-rounded individuals. To evaluate this balance, you are assessed in 2 ways:
- Academic Performance: To ensure you have the proper prerequisites to enter your program of choice at RMC, we assess and review your Grade 10, 11 and 12 marks, with your final year of high school results carrying the most weight. As a general guideline, it is recommended that you do not have any marks below 80% to ensure a competitive file.
- Personal Suitability: We assess your leadership, managerial, administrative, people and interpersonal skills. These skills will have manifested themselves through such activities as holding down a job, mentoring, tutoring, lifeguarding, being a camp counsellor, being a member of a committee at school or in the community, playing sports, involvement in cadets, volunteering, etc.
