(b) Chemistry 1110, 1130
(c) English 1015 or 1016
(d) One FCE chosen from: Mathematics 1210 and 1230 or 1151 and 1152 or 1171 and 1172

Notes:
1. Chemistry

Students planning to major in Geology who lack OAC Chemistry or equivalent, must register for Chemistry 1050/1070 as a science elective. After successful completion of Chemistry 1050/1070 one of the following will apply:
(a) In Year 2 the student registers for Chemistry 1110/1130 as one of the one and one half course electives.
(b) If the final mark in Chemistry 1050/1070 is at least 80%, the Department may waive the Chemistry 1110/1130 requirement. In this case the student must select a full course in Science from the electives in Year 2 of the program.
2. Mathematics
Students who lack high school MHF4U (Advanced Functions) or its equivalent must register for Mathematics 1051 and 1077. Mathematics 1210 and 1230 or 1151 and 1152 or 1171 and 1172 is taken in Year 2.
