Question: Hello! I’m interested in pursuing my BSc at the University of Calgary. They recommend me to take Physics 30 and/or Math 31. I want to take Physics 30, but I’m scared they’ll automatically put me in a higher level course in my first year. What should I do?
Hello and thank you so much for your question!
Since we don’t have any first-hand experience with post-secondary education, we have contacted Ashley, one of our alumni-founders/creators of this site! She says to not worry about being placed in a higher level class because everyone in first year sciences follows the same structure of introductory coursess. Also, you get to choose and build your schedule. However, if you would like to pursue a specific course, you are more than welcome to, but it isn’t really necessary.
If you would like additional information that is more specific to your own aspirations and inquiries, I recommend seeing Ms. Geran!
I wish you the best of luck in your upcoming exams and pursuit of post-secondary education!
