Admission Notes


  1. Completion of MATH 1C03  is required by the end of Level II.
  2. Students seeking admission to the program should note that MATH 1A03  and 1AA3  were designed for Chemical & Physical Science Gateway students and MATH 1LS3  and 1LT3  were developed for Life Sciences or Earth & Environmental Sciences Gateway students. MATH 1A03  and 1AA3  prepare students for a wide variety of upper year math courses. MATH 1LS3  and 1LT3  prepare students for many (but not all) upper year mathematics courses. As a result, students who take MATH 1LS3  and 1LT3  are permitted to enroll in upper year courses, but some self-study of first year calculus topics (such as series and additional integration topics) may be required.
  3. Completion of either COMPSCI 1MD3 DATASCI 2G03  (or PHYSICS 2G03) or MATH 1MP3  is required by the end of Level II, however, MATH 1MP3  is recommended in Level I.

Admission


Completion of any Level I program with a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0 including:

Program Notes


  1. PHYSICS 3A03  and 3C03  are listed in Level III but are offered in alternate years and may be taken in Level IV.
  2. A Minor in Astronomy or Statistics is not permitted in the Honours Mathematics and Physics program.
  3. Students must complete 3 units from COMPSCI 1MD3 DATASCI 2G03  (or PHYSICS 2G03) or MATH 1MP3 . Students are strongly recommended to complete both DATASCI 2G03  (or PHYSICS 2G03) and one of COMPSCI 1MD3  and MATH 1MP3 
  4. Completion of MATH 1C03  is required by the end of Level II.
  5. Students who entered the program prior to September 2022 may choose to complete one of MATH 3ET3 A/B S , 4P06 A/B S , 4W03 , STATS 4T06 A/B  or 4W03  instead of PHYSICS 3ET3 A/B S , 4L03 A/B  or 4P06 A/B . A total of 9 units of Level III, IV, V Physics or Astronomy courses will still be required.
  6. For students entering the program as of September 2022, completion of 3-6 units from MATH 3ET3 A/B S , 4P06 A/B S , 4W03 PHYSICS 3ET3 A/B S , 4L03 A/B , STATS 4T06 A/B  or 4W03  is required.
