I'm not entirely sure what you're asking, but see my post in this thread:
http://www.studentawards.com/Forum.aspx?g=posts&t=7232
If you've already taken a calc 1000 equivalent, then you can take another 0.5 of your choice in first semester in its place. If you've already taken bio, then maybe look here to see if you want to take any second year required courses: http://www.uwo.ca/bmsc/Year2_courses.html
Or you could take more electives. But you may want to talk to a counsellor to decide what's best: http://www.uwo.ca/sci/counselling/dept_counsellors.html

If you still have questions, I'd be happy to help as best I can.

Hi, when you do your course registration later this summer (or at SAO), your semesters should be like this:

First Semester:
[0.5] Chemistry 1100A
[0.5] Physics 1028A or 1301A or 1501A
[0.5] Category A, B, or C elective
[0.5] Category A, B, or C elective
[0.5] Category A or B elective

Second Semester:
[0.5] Chemistry 1200B
[0.5] Physics 1029B or 1302B or 1502B
[0.5] Calculus 1301B or 1502B, or Mathematics 1600B, 1225B, 1228B, 1229B, or Statistical Sciences 1024B.
[0.5] Category A, B, or C elective.
[0.5] Category A or B elective.

All your courses during first year must start with "1" - you cannot take an upper year course.

freebird gave some good links so make sure to check them out.
