Hey all this is my first time posting but a long time visitor. I think this website is a great resource and appreciate any help given. My situation is I'm currently in my third year at a community college in Canada and have recently started to seriously look in to medicine. Now after I complete my last year at CC i will go to university to take my pre-med courses. My dilemma is that my marks at CC are high enough that I can transfer over to university and get exempt from first year but I was wondering if its a good idea to skip first year. Would it be beneficial to me just to take first year class to improve my knowledge and potentially do well in the courses because I have taken similar courses or should I start in year two of the degree? Any advice on advantage/disadvantage of each choice would be greatly appreciated.
