Does university ONLY look at your top 6 marks?

So this semester I have four courses, which are physics, religion, business and english. I expect to get over a 90% in all these course except for physics. At midterms I had a 90 in physics, but that quickly dropped to a low 80. However, physics is not a course I need for any of my university applications and next semester I have  3 University Level courses and 1 Mixed Level course. Suppose all my other courses are above a 90 and for physics I end with with a 70. Would this mark at all affect my university acceptance (supposing physics is NOT included in top 6)?

If Physics is not a required course for admissions and you have 6 suitable other courses, then Physics will not be included in your "top 6" and it will not impact your admissions chances.
