Can I complete HSFY if I did not pass a semester 1 paper?

No. All semester 1 HSFY papers must be passed in one semester to complete HSFY. If you did not pass one or more papers, you'll need to choose a different programme to enrol in. This is easy to do in your eVision portal – see How can I change my course for semester 2? below.

To be eligible to apply for any of the Health Sciences professional programmes under the HSFY category you must complete all HSFY papers in one academic year. There are other degrees to which you can credit the papers you have passed in semester 1.

Student Development Student Advisers can discuss options with you.
