Courses

CBLG 10A is a multi-term course. If you enrol in CBLG 10A for the selected term, you will automatically be enrolled in CBLG 10B for the subsequent term. The automatic enrolment usually occurs near the completion of “A” term, and therefore the “B” term will not appear on your schedule of classes until that time. If you wish to pursue CKCH 113, you must also select CKCH 107 as together these courses are equivalent to CHY 113. If you wish to pursue CKCH 142, you must also select CKCH 143 as together these courses are equivalent to CHY 142. If you wish to pursue CKCH 225, you must also select CKCH 227 as together these courses are equivalent to BCH 261.
