Yes, you can still pursue your goals of attending university in Canada despite having a history of backlogs. Have a strong resume and an acceptable explanation for your backlogs.

The Canadian Universities are renowned for their high academic standards and approaches to providing a highly customized education from which you could benefit. The best part is that you can enroll in some of the top Canadian institutions even if you have ten or more backlogs because the nation is home to some of the best universities globally. For your reference, a few of them are listed below:

  1. Thompson University
  2. Yorkville University
  3. Cape Breton University
  4. Concordia University of Edmonton 

To make it easier for you to pursue and realize your aspirations, some Canadian universities accept students with a maximum of five backlogs. In comparison, other Canadian universities & colleges even accept students with a maximum of eight or even ten backlogs.

Every university has its selection committee, which goes through your profile, selects an outstanding candidate and allows them to sit in an interview round and explain themself. You, of course, must work hard and follow all the protocols to reach the interview level. Your IELTS score of 6 will also play a vital role; you can use this as evidence of improvement and commitment to work hard. 

Once you reach the interview level, be honest with yourself and your profile. Try to explain then the reason you took eight years to complete and the story of 47 backlogs. Try to be as honest as possible in the interview questions. 

If the panel finds you truthful, they will allow you to prove yourself and your capabilities. Please make sure to work hard.  

We recognise that unfinished business during your study is typical for several reasons. However, we advise you not to let this idea hold you back because there are countless opportunities outdoors.
