The tuition thing has always been a little wonky.
In my Level II year, I got charged for 33 units when I took 33 units.
But when I got added a four unit course, I ended up being charged for 34 units (when I actually took 37).
When I tried to add another four-unit course via permission to overload, I got charged for 38 units (while actually taking 41).
In first-year, being a student from Headstart myself, I was charged for 31 units - but at $205.03/unit, instead of the $189.84 indicated here
This is before
supplementary fees too.

2. I'm not certain about #1, but notice that from 18-30 units, each additional unit costs $250.04, but from 31-33 units, each additional unit costs $239.14.
So if anything, 37 units would cost $8917.78+ (4*$239.14) = $9874.34
3. If you mean second-year Eng courses, I don't think you'll be able to since you don't know which department you're going into yet. If you have free choice, you might
be able to negotiate permission to take something, but you should check which courses have prereqs and see if you fulfilled them first.
The only course you don't need permission for that comes to mind is Chem 1AA3, which is required for second-year Chem, Chem and Bio, Elec and Biomed, and Materials Engineering.
If you're referring to second-year non-Eng courses, or electives, then keep in mind that a lot of level II courses require you to be in level II or above (see: here
) so you won't be able to take those without permission either.
