If you are enrolled in the Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) programme, after receiving your semester 1 exam results you can add in an optional eighth paper in semester 2, selected from an approved list.
The results in your best seven papers will be counted for the purposes of admission to the professional programmes, provided that the compulsory seven papers are passed at or above the required minimum standards.

ENGL 126 does not count for admission to professional programmes in the same way an optional 8th paper does.
If you are required to take ENGL 126 you must pass this paper in order to be eligible for admission, but the result is not considered as part of the results of your best seven papers.
You are encouraged to check the optional eighth paper FAQs and book a course advice appointment if you have any further questions.
