BIO 1M03 Transfer Credits
Hey guys
so im eligible for transfer credits for BIO 1M03 the ecology and evolution one, im not a big fan of evolution infact i kinda hate it. Just wondering if i should take the transfer credits for the course or should i just do the course next term. Does the stuff in that course carry on into second year? Im taking psych 1XX3 as well next term so having that plus the bio would be a lot on my plate i would think.

I would probably take the transfer credits...if you are eligible that means that you have done the same material to some degree in the past so you should be at the same level as someone who has already taken the course, and thus should not be worried about whether the course material is "carried on into second year". You should do be able to do equally or similarly as well as anyone else who has taken 1M03.

For the most part, I have found that first year bio sort of provides a foundation but doesn't really carry on that much into second year courses (I am a biology student).

I will switch my opinion, although it's an alright course, you save 500$ by taking the transfer credits. So definitely take the credits, take something else that interests you most!!!
