Hey guys,

I had a quick question about international relations at u of t.

I know that a pre req for the economics program at u of t is high school calc, but in the view book calc is not required for international relations. However

U of T website :

To gain admission to the Specialist Program, students must obtain a first year C.G.P.A. of 3.00, with an average of at least 67% in the required first year courses. The three required first year courses are:

ECO 100Y1/ 105Y1

I am wondering high school calc would be required to take this econ course or any subsequent eco courses. Seeing how I am not applying to the econ program, would this be okay? Would high school calc nonetheless be a requirement? Thanks so much

It's "recommended", not required. From what I've heard of ECO100, the most difficult math you'll have to do is finding the slopes of lines (y=mx+b)

Eco 105 is not very difficult. If you're an IR student, I would recommend just going with the Eco 105 course simply because it's going to be less work. It's a lot of memorization but with the help of past tests, you will have no problem. Just make sure you get over an 80% so that you don't have to retake it second year.
