Molecular Genetics and Microbiology Major

(Science Program)
Enrolment Requirements: 

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student's marks in the 3.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, (CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/(CHM138H1, CHM139H1)/CHM151Y1, and (MAT135H1, MAT136H1)/MAT135Y1/​MAT137Y1/​MAT157Y1, with an average of at least 70% on these 3.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 70s; average = mid 70s.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

Note: Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment web site for application procedures).

At later times, contact the Undergraduate Coordinator.
