hey zango. since from the looks of this you are a first year science student. Majority of all these students are gonna be taking the same courses. So from the looks of it, its what everyone else is living with and you can't really adjust it that much. Its a decent course load. You do have to keep up with all of it and be ready to work hard when you need to.
I just also want to point out that you only have 27 units and not 30 units. you have one less course, which means it will definately lighten up your load. hope you have a plan to make up for the 3 units in the summer or something .

Hey Zango,

My course load is almost the same with the except of psych II and environmental sciences. I am also confused as to whether or not I should take 1LS3 or 1A03 in math, for now I have 1LS3 but I might do a bit more research on it and switch it. Your course load looks fair for a life science student. Good luck with it, and maybe ill have some classes with you.

zango, we have the same courses haha, only difference is i have math 1ls3 and that physics and math at swaped in terms of terms. im enrolled in lifesciences so im taking 1ls3 and if you are you i advise you to do the same unless you need the math 1ao3 for a prereq. good choice in electives, you plan on doing life sci or honours bio psych?
