- “Why math 105 ubc is hard?”
It’s hard because it’s calculus and any science related course at UBC is no walk in the park (actually, any course at UBC for that matter…), you have to work hard to achieve high grades, but the reality is, there will be certain subjects you may not do so hot in no matter how hard you try…
- “What is the average needed to get into ubc psychology”
I’m not sure but seeing as the BSc Psychology program only admits 50 students a year, I assume you’ll probably need at least a mid-70 average.
For a BA in Psychology, you will need to declare your major as Psychology after your first year, I don’t think there is a certain GPA needed for this option. Although, your ability to receive an Arts degree in Psychology will require your ability to register in certain courses (as registration times depend solely on your average from the previous winter session, so the higher grades you have, the earlier you get to register, and the higher the chance of you getting a spot in the courses you want!)

- “What courses to take: first year of art ubc”
Depends on what you want to major in! Go take a look at the Calendar!
- “Ubc biology major hard?”
Nothing is easy at UBC, but Biology isn’t too hard to get into if you have a decent average because they can admit a large amount of students since it’s a huge program with many different streams you can choose to focus on (Animal Physiology, Plant Physiology, Cells, Genetics, just to name a few). The courses aren’t easy, you still have to work hard, it’s not all just memorization unlike in high school Biology. So to those people who make fun of us Biology majors, back off! You’re just jealous of our wacky ways, we still have to work hard!
- Math 100 or math 102 ubc? Is math 180 UBC harder than math 184? Which one i better, math 180 or 184?
It all depends on your own personal preference, what you’re interested in applying your calculus skills in. Math 100 focuses on engineering and physical science applications. Math 102 has a focus on life sciences. Math 180 is basically like Math 100 only it’s aimed towards students with no prior exposure with Calculus, there’s an extra workshop component (which I really enjoyed because there were only about 30 students in each class), I’ve heard that it’s harder than Math 184 (No calculus experience with Social Sciences/Business applications), only because the average for Math 184 tends to be higher than for Math 180. Math 180 also did not allow the use of calculators. As for which one is “better”, it depends on whether or not you would like to apply calculus to more scientific topics or to more business-related subjects!
- Biol 121 at ubc hard?
This course is actually really funny because every class seems to learn about different things. The over-arching topics of Evolution, Genetics and Ecology are there but different professors focus on different subtopics. My professor, for example, spent a lot of time detailing the information from a couple of chapters for the Ecology section, while another professor chose to focus on information from a lot of different chapters without going into a lot of detail. But people tend to agree with me when I say this course isn’t too difficult, the topics weren’t too hard, you just have to see how much detail your professor expects you to know for the exams.
