Your grades however will be your downfall. Keep up the activities and improve your grades a lot.
I'm talking above 80% at the least to stand a chance.
They look at your grades starting from grade 10~12, as they look for consistency.
When I dropped off my application, with a constant 86~88 average, along with activities such as:
Glider pilot scholarship
national lifeguard service
First Aid/ CPR C-
over 200 hours of volunteer hours at a recognized humanitarian group
2 school clubs (Model UN and Rotary Interact)
Duke of Ed silver
(there are a few more)
I was told that I was a very good candidate for ROTP.
I was contacted again in just a few days, and they scheduled all the interviews and testing for a single day.
Obviously get your marks up as high as possible, but to have at least a decent shot at it, improve your grades to the 80s range.
Keep up with your activities, add a few more if you can.
Other than that, good luck buddy.
Couldn't agree more with Golbemaster, when I initially applied for RMC, I had similar qualifications. However, my grade 11 average was around 65. Therefore, though my military career counsellor thought I was a pretty strong candidate for ROTP, I still was rejected due to my marks in grade 11.
Although your marks are not everything they look for, they do play a big part in your application
