There’s a scholarship for students from Africa, there might be something similar for students from Western Asia, I can’t find anything though so you might want to contact someone at UBC to ask:
I can’t really help you because I don’t think I’ve ever got an A in BIOL 112 and they’ve also changed the curriculum. I think you should go talk to your professor or TA and ask for help. Sorry!
I’m not the person you should be talking to about this, you need to speak to your program advisor and exchange advisor to figure out which courses you’re allowed to take while you’re abroad and how they can count towards your degree.
In terms of UBC Biology, as long as you have the pre-requisite courses or equivalent (if any), you can take the course. Some courses have seats reserved for BIOL students, but if your registration time is early enough, you can get a general seat. Although, you might be able to get a reserved seat as an exchange student, but again, you need to speak to your exchange advisor.
Virology courses are usually in the Microbiology & Immunology department (MICB) not in Biology, so you’ll want to look at those courses.

I think that’s fine, but most grad schools only look at your average for the last few years instead of overall average.
