So for first year I need a biology and also a calculus credit. I took 12U advanced functions but did not take 12U calculus, also I took 11U biology and not 12U biology. (I know, poor planning :( ) When I was planning my courses there was conflict and I wasn't able to take 1P03 and 1F03 without there being time overlapping and messing up my whole schedule. Now I know that MATH 1K03 isn't usually available to students who had already taken 12U advanced functions but I was wondering if it is at all possible for me to take it, because if I take that then my whole schedule will be perfect. And I know that I have to have a grade of 7.0. THANK YOU

You can try emailing the academic advisor for your program but you're definitely going to need a better reason than 'my schedule will be perfect'. From my experience, they're usually NOT very accommodating for granting a waiver due to a scheduling conflict. Especially since you're in first year, they'll probably say "you have 3 more years to complete this course, so tough luck"
