Prohibited units

ECMT1010 Introduction to Economic Statistics

No student in any degree administered by the Faculty of Science (including those degrees jointly administered by the Faculty of Science and another faculty) is permitted to undertake ECMT1010.

If their degree resolutions allow, students may enrol into ECMT1020 or intermediate Econometrics and Economics units of study. These units are not deemed mutually exclusive with Science Table 1.

Students wishing to complete an Economics major should take one of MATH1005, MATH1015 or MATH1905 in lieu of ECMT1010.

Any BSc/BA or BLAS degree students who have completed ECMT1010 before 2013 will be made an exception. They are permitted to count ECMT1010 towards completion of their degree.

Affected students should seek degree planning advice from the Faculty of Science directly, or, for BLAS degree affected students, should seek degree planning advice from the BLAS degree coordinators – (Science stream) and (Arts stream).
