FAQs for students who fail CHEM 191 and/or HUBS 191

What if I fail CHEM 191 and/or HUBS 191?

CHEM 191 and HUBS 191 are both prerequisites for second semester HSFY papers.

Therefore, if you fail one (or both) of these papers, you cannot do HSFY in second semester.

You'll need to choose a different programme to enrol in.

Course advisors can discuss options with you.

There are many other options too, such as a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBiomedSc), or even crediting the papers you passed towards a non-Health Sciences degree.

Can I apply for Health Sciences professional programmes without completing HSFY?

  • Two or More Years of University Study Category
  • Graduate Category

Health Sciences course advisers are available to discuss your options.
