Admission
Prior to registration, Level I students must review the admission requirements of the Level II programs they are considering. Courses must be selected carefully to meet the admission requirements for entry to Level II of a speciﬁc program. For details of the various admission requirements see Faculty of Science program descriptions in this section of the Calendar. Students are also encouraged to review the McMaster Academic Planner (MAP) at www.mapsci.ca. Additionally, in late June and early July, Academic Advisors from the Ofﬁce of the Associate Dean of Science (Academic) are readily available to provide Level I students with academic advice and registration assistance. To maximize the selection of Level II programs from the disciplines of Mathematics and Statistics, students should complete the courses recommended below.
Program Notes
 MATH 1A03 and 1AA3 or MATH 1LS3 and 1LT3 may be used as substitutions for MATH 1X03 and 1XX3 for consideration to Level II Mathematics and Statistics programs for students from other Level I programs. However, Mathematics and Statistics Gateway students are strongly discouraged from taking MATH 1LS3 and 1LT3 as they do not cover all content needed for MATH 2X03 .
 Students may substitute COMPSCI 1JC3 , 1MD3 , 1XA3 for the 3 units required from the Faculty of Science.
 Completion of COMPSCI 1MD3 or MATH 1MP3 is required for admission to the Honours Mathematics and Computer Science program.
 Completion of ECON 1B03 and 1BB3 is required by the end of Level II for the Honours Actuarial and Financial Mathematics program. Completion in Level I is recommended.
 Effective September 2019, completion of MATH 1C03 is required by the end of Level II for all Honours Mathematics and Statistics programs, excluding Honours Actuarial and Financial Mathematics.
 WHMIS 1A00 , a onehour mandatory online Introduction to Health and Safety course, is a corequisite to Level 1 courses with a lab component and must be completed prior to the ﬁrst lab.
