hey dear aska!
first, thank you for answering my question last time on tumblr i find it very helpful!
i am planning to change subject post to a german major and minors in econ and cinema studies. it’s my second year in u of t, and i am now doing finance specialist in rotman
i will have completed the courses that are required for german major (2nd year) and econ minor (2nd year, too) by summer 2015. sorry for all this long introduction for my background~ and here comes my two questions,
1) concerning my situation, do i just wait for april and add the posts that i want?
2) different from the progress in german and econ, i will only complete the first-year requirement course for cinema studies by summer 2015. will it contradict with the “years of study” approved by the other two programs? if not, am i good enough to register as a 3rd-year student in 2015/16 ?
thank you so much for reading my questions!?
1) yes, you have to wait until april to change around subject POSts.
2) year of study is determined by the number of credits you’ve accumulated to date, so taking a first year course can’t really change that.
however, you may run into some problems if you’ve already taken 6.0 first-year courses – if you then take CIN105Y1, the course will be designated as an ‘extra’ course, which means it won’t count towards your CGPA or credits towards your degree.
the CIN minor only requires 4.0 FCEs, so if you do CIN105Y1 in the summer, you’ve got plenty of time in your third and fourth year to do the other 3.0 FCEs required for the POSt.
if you’re willing to possibly have that CIN105 course be designated extra, you shouldn’t run into any problems. lots of people take up a minor after second year – i’d say it’s totally doable.
sidenote: don’t apologize for giving background! i love it when you give me background. i live on background. it lets me understand what in the flinging flanging tarnation people are talking about.
best of luck transitioning out of rotman, friend. i hope you find what you’re looking for.
