Switching university programs

Is it possible to change Humanities to Life science once i get into the university? I am currently taking grade 12 courses which relates to life science.

From humanities to life science: yes, but certain first year science courses require high school pre-reqs, so if you don't have them, it will take you longer to complete your degree. But if you're already taking them, I don't see why you would go into the humanities in the first place.

From life science to humanities: yes, easily.

i have been taken grade 12, biology, chemistry, English, ad.function, and two other courses. Is calculus really necessary for life science?

Have you checked the prereqs for the classes you'd be interested in taking? They're usually accessible online. Alternatively, you might want to attend a university fair and talk to a recruitment officer about your concerns...

yes, going to med school is my plan as well. i thought of applying for humanities if my grade 12 result are ok... if they are good, then of course will apply for life science. i hear people saying that you will have to stay one more year in university when you switch program. that will be fine with me as long as i get accepted. :)

I agree with Spengler...I will be taking life science for first year 2011..and I was wondering if I could switch it to something else.My counselor said it is possible ...if I have the prerequisites. But if I don't then that's gonna take much longer to do.
