Timetable advice?
These are the classes I'm planning on taking next year, but I want to know if there is a big chance that I may not get a few of these. I've heard certain courses fill up super fast, but others should be okay. (Also, I'm in social sciences- so it might affect my chances of getting the science courses.)

P.S I've already made sure that none of the classes or tutorials conflict, and I double-checked that I was eligible for each one

Term 1:
Intro to Health Studies- 1AA3
Biology - Biodiversity -1M03
Kinesiology- Intro to anatomy&physiology -1Y03
Psychology- 1X03

Term 1&2:
Sociology- 1A06

Term 2:
Intro to Health and Aging- 1BB3
General Chemistry- 1R03
Women Studies- Culture& Power- 1A03
Anthro- Human Species- 1Z03

How many backups should I have? Should they be for my social science cores or electives?


Hope this makes sense hahahaa

I'm not sure how many seats are available to Soc Sci students in Science courses especially Bio. However, Kin 1Y03 fills up REALLY fast. It's not impossible, I was able to get in in first year, but I got in really early on SOLAR. But you could always try to get in later on throughout August and even during the first week of school. As for back-ups, I would suggest 2-3 per term, just to be safe and in case you have to choose a few random courses to fill up 30 units until SOLAR re-opens so you can get into your top choices. Also, these back-ups can really be anything you want, just make sure you fulfill your Soc Sci I requirements.
