Q: If I want to take summer school, when does it start and end around?

There are 3 possible times that your classes can start/end

Term 1 only courses: Beginning of May to the mid/end of June

Term 2 only courses: Beginning of July to mid/end of August

Term 1 and Term 2: Beginning of May to mid/end of August. 

There are odd classes that start in June, but those are pretty rare.

Q: Hi, I am planning to switch into Int. Sci 3rd year. For promotion to year 3, on the Science calendar, there lists "Specialization-Specific Courses Required for Promotion". In my major, there lists 2 courses, and I am not taking one of them. Do you know if this is for ANY promotion (ie. promotion in general)? I didn't register because I didn't see much point taking a class that I will not plan to major in (and I will not be taking any courses that use this as a pre-req), but I am feeling unsure..

I’m pretty sure those courses are required to move on to 3rd year in your current major. For general 3rd year requirement, you need 48 credits minimum. 

For Integrated Sciences: 

  • For the General Science and Integrated Sciences programs, the 15 additional science credits used to calculate the average must prepare the student to take required upper-level courses in at least two General Science subject areas.

You should go talk to an advisor for Integrated Sciences to see how you can catch up and be promoted to 3rd Year Integrated Science without losing a year.

Q: 2+ floors are only for authorized personnels only. You either have to volunteer/work for lab, or ask for temporary access card at the administrative office on the first floor.

Thanks!

Q: I saw someone able to study on the top floors at LSC. Do you know if regular undergrads (who do not work there) are able to get up there by using the elevator? Or, are we only able to study in the atrium? Thanks!

I don’t know, you can always try! If someone kicks you out, you’d know! :P

Q: Hi :) I've got two midterms (math/econ) half an hour apart coming up in two weeks. I was wondering how you handled back to back exams or studying for them? I've read your midterm tips. I thought I could keep on top of things, but I get projects and assignments that keep me from really reading over notes. Maybe it's just adapting to unilife in general..? :/

I alternate my study schedule so that I do an hour from one subject and then switch to the other for another hour and keep going. You can start planning your studying and breaking it down to see how many chapters/sections you can handle in a day and how many days left you have to study. 

It’s just about balance, you can’t expect to do well in both if you don’t do some careful planning ahead of time.

It’s also easier if you do regular review every week so that you don’t suddenly have to make up for lost time when the midterm comes.

Q: Where would a W usually appear? I dropped a course yesterday and I just want to check that everything is good.

It would be under ”Grades & Records -> Your Grades Summary”.

Q: Umm.. so like UBC has a lot of people... why does it feel like a farm all the time??! #IHP #lookingforwardtosmallerclasses

I’m not sure what you mean by it being a farm, I actually quite enjoy farms but I’m not too fond of crowds :S. 

I know what you mean, I had to walk to 4 different buildings today at 11 AM just to find a seat.
