37.9.2 Faculty of Science

A full session course (or full course equivalent) means a single course with a course weight of 6 or two or more courses whose combined weights are 6.  A half session course means a single course with a course weight of 3 or two or more courses whose combined weights are 3.  Please note - There are certain courses with weights of 1, 2 and 4; these courses are considered as one-sixth, one-third and two-thirds of a full session course respectively.  For courses taken in Engineering, the course weight is designated by the i symbol.  (See Section 192.8 of the Calendar.)

Following the title of the course is the symbol "i" standing for "course weight", and a number indicating the weight of the course as used in computing grade point averages and for meeting degree requirements.  A full session course is weighted 6; a half session course is weighted 3.  There are certain courses, offered over the full session or in a half session, with weights of 1, 2 and 4.  These courses are considered as one-sixth, one-third and two-thirds of a full session course respectively.  Some honors and graduate courses involving research may vary in weight according to the length and difficulty of the project.  Some courses are offered for credit only, and carry a weight of 0.  (See Section 194.1 of the Calendar.)
