This module provides a balance between core Chemistry and Biochemistry. It includes a course which is an independent research project, in which the student works in a research laboratory in one of the Departments of Chemistry or Biochemistry, typically during the final year of study. This module can be completed only within a BSc (Hons) degree.
Completion of first year requirements with no failures. Students must have an average of at least 70% in 3.0 principal courses, including:
1.0 course: Chemistry 1100A/B and Chemistry 1200B (with an average in the two of at least 60%), or the former Chemistry 1050, 1020 with a minimum mark of 60%, or the former Chemistry 023 with a minimum mark of 70%;
1.0 course: Biology 1001A and 1002B (with an average in the two of at least 60%), or the former Biology 1222 or 1223, with a minimum mark of 60%;
1.0 course from:
Calculus 1000A/B or 1100A/B plus 0.5 course from Applied Mathematics 1201A/B or the former Calculus 1201A/B, Calculus 1301A/B, 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B or the former Linear Algebra 1600A/B (with an average mark in the two of at least 60%);
or Applied Mathematics 1413; or Mathematics 1225A/B plus 1229A/B (with an average mark in the two of at least 80%);
or Mathematics 1225A/B plus Applied Mathematics 1201A/B or the former Calculus 1201A/B (with an average mark in the two of at least 80%);
or the former Mathematics 030 with a mark of at least 80%.
1.0 course: (Physics 1028A/B or 1301A/B or 1501A/B) and (Physics 1029A/B or 1302A/B or 1502A/B), with an average in the two half courses of at least 60%; or the former Physics 1020, 1024, with a minimum mark of 60%, is also required but is not considered to be a principal course.
Note: Biology 1201A with a minimum mark of 70% can be used to replace Biology 1001A, and Biology 1202B with a minimum mark of 70% can be used to replace Biology 1002B.
