I am a Canadian student and plan to take a 5th year (switched my degree part way and now a few credits behind). I was wondering if it would be better to take a bunch of courses that I can easily get an A in or re-take courses I did not do well in in first and second year (i.e C courses)?

Do not retake courses; it impresses no one
Do not take a bunch of obviously easy courses; it impresses no one.

If you got Cs in required courses, you should considered taking additional upper level Biology/Chemistry to show your ability to handle such work
