Q: Do you know if professors regularly check their email (the official ubc ones) or if they usually only check that when they are in the office or working? I have an urgent matter I need to contact one, however he is not responding the email so im wondering if I should call or just wait (but not sure if they check official emails in the summer...)

They usually are checking their emails over the summer, but they may be on vacation right now. If it’s been maybe 2 weeks since you’ve contacted them without a response, you should try finding a department contact and asking them if they know where the professor is.

Q: Hello! I was wondering if there is a maximum number of credits we can have throughout our Bachelors of Science degree. Can we take any courses we want in any year as long as we meet the prerequisites? For example, could I take a 3rd course in my first year, or a first year course in my third year? Thanks!

The maximum is 180 credits, and as long as there aren’t any restrictions to year levels and you have the pre-reqs, you can register for any course you want, in any year level. You do need at least 48 credits of 300 or 400-level courses though.

Q: Would your recommend MATH 180 or MATH 184 for someone weak in math and has no calculus experience. I'm entering the faculty of science and I got accepted kind of late.

MATH 184 is known to be at least slightly easier than MATH 180, I took MATH 180 and I have many regrets =P.

Depending on the date that you drop the course, you can get up to a 100% refund:

Q: do you remember bio 204 being like picky on details? midterms tmrw (9am =/) and i know concepts and the details.. but not every little thing :(

Depends on the question, but if you email me, I could send you a document my prof gave us on how they usually mark. She gave examples on what a 10/20 would look like vs a 20/20 on an old exam question. 

Just remember: Who, what, where, when, why and how, and include answers to those questions whenever possible.
