How would I achieve going to a University for music?
I'm wanting to go university after I complete high school, but I do not have any grades in the RCM except my Intermediate rudiments (I just did my exam for Advanced rudiments today) This is the University I'm interested in.

It is definitely do-able. Please ensure that not only are you meething the theory requirements, but also the practical. It seems as though they will be marking you as if you're taking a grade 8 exam, EXCEPT for technical tests/studies, and sight reading. Make sure you can at least play at the 70% level in order to have a chance in succeeding in the audition. In order to be exempt from their theory entrance-test, you must achieve 80% or higher on your Advanced Rudiments exam. Ear tests will be of the same format as Grade 8 RCM. You may perform 2-3 pieces, equating to about 20 minutes of music being played, including a 20th century piece. The MINIMUM level has to be Grade 8 RCM.
I pretty much summarized everything, here's the link to the audition requirements:http://www.humanities.mcmaster.ca/audition/index.h...
Good luck with everything!
