Q
Asked by: Tavia
Question: I've been accepted into the bachelor of arts program looking to major in Psychology. I'm taking the AP Language and AP Psychology exam in May. If I pass these exams with 3,4, or 5 will I still have to take ENG 1205 and PSYC 1200 (in reference to the first year requirements)? If not, which courses can I take in their place?

Answer: Hello. Thank you for your question! I am not entirely sure how to answer your question, but will try. You mention "AP" courses which may be different from the IB program which is offered in Canada., however For IB I know if you make a 4 or a 5 you will get at least one course completion in its equivalence at the university level as long as that particular school accepts the program. I assume it would be similar for AP but there may be differences. The people who you will need to call or email for this specific question would be the Admissions department. They can be contact at recruitment@smu.ca or 1 902 420 5415 On a side note I am assuming you are coming out of high school AP programs and going into university. You should look up scholarships and bursaries given for people who go through AP. For IB I know some schools give scholarships and bursaries for that program specifically! Lastly, I am in the Bachelor of Science program in psychology at SMU. One thing I have learned is that you should talk to your advisor about courses. You will want to focus on opening up your prerequisites so you can move forward in your degree. Social psychology, mind and brain, and a few others are some of the prerequisites that will open doors for you. http://www.smu.ca/academics/arts-ba-advising-centre.html Thanks for asking questions and reading all of this. Good Luck!
