Even with 10 hours a week in class, there is no denying that weekly university schedules can be irregular (vs. a high school schedule)...

The problem is that I want to go in health sciences, but I did not take one of the two biology classes that are required at CÉGEP because initially I wanted to go in engineering. I thought of doing biomed engineering at Polytechnique, but well, not ready to live on my own. So now I don't really know what do to because I'd like to try to get into medicine or pharmacy in a few (1 to 3) years if possible.

I thought of doing either chemistry engineering or any other kind of engineering at ULaval and adding this bio class I'm missing to my schedule, but I'm wondering if that would be just too much workload. :\

Also, anyone knows what grades I should need at university in such a program (engineering) to get into medicine when my Cote R "only" is 32.2 (blame myself for never studying in the first three semesters at CÉGEP ) ?

Depends on the med school. If you think attending McGill for med school is for you, you'd better get a high MCAT score (33Q and better) on top of 3.8+... but the other three med schools in Quebec do not even accept MCAT scores. After the 50th credit in university, R-scores from CEGEP are no longer considered.
