Study in canada with backlogs?. Yes, you are eligible for admission even with backlogs. Although the Canadian Universities offer admission based on merit, some of the reputed Canadian Universities/Colleges show leniency in accepting aspiring & eligible international students even with backlogs to pursue their studies in Canada. 

 

Canadian Universities account for your backlog in terms of the number of subjects or in some instance the time taken to clear such backlogs. Usually, low-grade & absenteeism will lead to backlogs. However, if you were able to maintain a good overall score in the re-appear exam, then the Universities have hardly any reason to reject your application. Also, a good score in standardized exams like IELTS etc. will overshadow the effect of backlogs in your application.

 

Furthermore, your scores in major subjects of your graduation decide the fate of your admission. Say if you are applying to the Computer Science & you have an excellent score in Programming Language subjects, your chances of acceptance improve, despite the fact that you have backlogs in other subjects. It ultimately gives you an edge over other candidates with backlogs. 

 

Nonetheless. it is certain that you cannot apply for Canadian universities with any active backlogs. 

 

As a general rule of thumb, even if you have 10 plus backlogs, the following reputed Canadian Universities have opened their doors for admission:

 

  • Thompson University
  • Yorkville University
  • Cape Breton University
  • Concordia University of Edmonton
  • Royal Roads University, 
  • Wilfrid Laurier University & more., 

 

Useful Tip: “Make sure to not submit your individual mark sheets that mention your fail attempts. Instead, include the transcripts from your University as they just give details about your cleared subjects. It works!”

 

Contact our team of expert education consultants for more such useful tips. 

 

A quick check on FAQs

Candidates with a maximum of 5 backlogs & with a minimum of 70% in bachelors are easily accepted. Some universities may accept applications with maximum 7 or 8 backlogs & a minimum of 65% and above in bachelors but only for PG degree programmes.

Students with more than 10 or 12 backlogs are eligible to apply for PG diplomas in Canada. Further, for students with a higher number of backlogs, the admissions can be granted but on a case-to-case basis. Basically, you are still eligible to study in Canada!

  • I could not appear for my semester exams due to medical reasons however I have cleared it in the second trial. Can I get admission to the top & esteemed Universities in Canada for further studies?

It’s absolutely fine and you’re eligible to apply. Presumably, with a good CGPA, there are possibilities for you to get admission despite your backlog history. However, it is completely dependent on the hands of university officials.

Further, it is recommended to apply to more than 2 universities as it will increase your chances for your admissions.

      The Canadian universities may also accept seven or eight backlogs for PG degree courses with a minimum average of 65% in bachelors. If you have 10 or 12 backlogs, then you can apply for PG diplomas while students with higher backlogs are evaluated on a case-to-case basis.

      Backlogs are counted on the basis of Semester cards . Even if you are absent it will be counted as Backlogs . And we cant say that a students visa will get rejected for sure considering the backlogs .
