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 from: Chemistry 1301A/B and 1302A/B (with an average of at least 60%), or Chemistry 1100A/B and 1200B (with an average of at least 60%) or the former Chemistry 1050, with a minimum mark of 60%.
1.0 course from: Biology 1001A and 1002B (with an average of at least 60%), or the former Biology 1222 or 1223, with a minimum mark of 60%.
1.0 course from:
Calculus 1000A/B, 1500A/B or the former 1100A/B; and one of Applied Mathematics 1201A/B or the former Calculus 1201A/B, Applied Mathematics 1413, Calculus 1301A/B, 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B or the former Linear Algebra 1600A/B, Mathematics 1225A/B or 1229A/B. (An average in the two courses of at least 60% is required.)
1.0 course from: (Physics 1028A/B or 1301A/B or 1501A/B) and (Physics 1029A/B or 1302A/B or 1502A/B), with an average of at least 60%; or the former Physics 1020 or 1024 with a minimum mark of 60%. (This 1.0 course is 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.
