test form

Use this form to request permission to take a CHEM course (or cross-listed equivalent) after two attempts. You need this permission because you have already attempted this course twice or more times. This process is not designed to exclude you but to ensure that you know what needs to happen in a subsequent attempt.
Use as much space as you need in the text boxes.
This is not a petition and will not affect previous grades in any way.

** indicates required field

Make sure to include your full name, your York student number and a valid email address.
Your email address will be used for confirmation and approval/rejection email messages and comments.
Identify yourself

Identify the course requested by first identifying the rubric (CHEM, BCHM or BIOL), then giving the course number. Note that only BCHM and BIOL courses cross-listed with CHEM courses can be considered (e.g. BCHM 2020 and BIOL 2020 are not cross-listed with a CHEM course but BCHM 3010 and BIOL 3010 are).
Course Requested

List the grades earned in previous attempts.
Previous Grades

Give details for any other attempt.

For each attempt, Identify what academic and non-academic issues were present that prevented you from succeeding. Use as much space as you need but be specific and thorough, conveying the impression that you have given this much thought.
Brief or vague responses (such as "I did not devote enough time") will not help you. Neither will ignoring the need to speak to each attempt.

What went wrong
Since then

Identify any non-academic issues that affected you in an earlier attempt (such as a health issue) and which persist and how you plan to deal with them. Use as much space as you need but be specific and thorough.

List any petitions that you have made with regard to this course and their outcomes. If you have not petitioned, state why not. Use as much space as you need but be specific and thorough.

After giving careful thought, identify the academic practices that you will implement in a future attempt to ensure success. Use as much space as you need but be specific and thorough, conveying the impression that you have given this much thought.
Brief or vague responses (such as "I will devote more time") will not help you. Neither will practices that you will "try to" implement.
