As I posted before. You will not have to take SLT during your second summer in ROTP if you score BBB (reading, writing, and speech). As a matter of fact, you will also be given a spare a day during the academic year instead of taking a second language course, in your case French. If you're good enough at French and you score EEE, you will be exempt for life.
That was really helpful, thanks!

One of our ROTP members here will have to comment on how second language training works for ROTP. I do not know at what point it is evaluated when one claims aptitude in the second official language, nor to what degree it factors in recruiting selection.
Thank you for your help anyways!  :salute:

I ended up with this:

Uni English
Uni Math
Uni Bio
Uni Physics
Uni Chemistry
Uni French Grade 11 and 12
Open Fitness

I may not be able to do French since grade 10 french may not be offered in summer school. If I don't take french, will my RMC application lose competitiveness?

Hey Daniel,

A couple of my friends here at RMC are Pilots in the Engineering and Arts programs.
Your course load is perfectly fine for either of those programs. Pilot's one of those trades you can have any degree in.
About French, it's not mandatory, nor does taking french lower your competitiveness...

HOWEVER, you WILL need to take French at RMC until you're functionally bilingual. Really the only way it could affect your competitiveness is if you're bilingual or not.
So yeah, I'd take it because you don't want to start from scratch in French - especially if you're in the Engineering program.
It'll help you out in the long run so go for it now.

Thank you so much Kaygee! That helped alot! I'm not going for ANY degree, I'm going for either a science or aviation degree as they are preferred for the Pilot occupation.
