2. Resolving timetable clashes
Once s/he starts on the BAC12 course, the student puts together his/her BAC12 and BAC13 timetable, paying attention to the minor course times.
If a timetable clash arises, several solutions are possible :
Postponing courses :
Should a timetable clash arise in BAC12 (major course/ and elective course), the student may ask to postpone one of the two course until the following year, taking account of the sequences of the courses (requirement). The course to be postponed may be the major course or elective course.
Students are not obliged to follow the 15 elective credits every year. Each year of study should ideally include 60 credits. The student must set out his/her program evenly over the two years in order to be in the best position to obtain, for the BAC13, 30 elective credits and 150 major credits.
The student must obtain the consent of the conseiller aux études (course adviser) to postpone course until the next year.The course adviser will also look at how evenly the program is spread out over the two years.
Bringing courses forward :
Should there be a timetable clash in BAC13 (major course/ and elective course), the student may bring forward one of the two courses. The course to be brought forward may be the major course or elective.
Students are not obliged to take the 15 elective credits each year. Each year of study should include 60 credits. The student must spread his/her program out evenly over two years of study in order to obtain, for the BAC13, 30 elective credits and 150 major credits.
The student must ask the conseiller aux études (course adviser) for permission to bring a course from the next year forward. The course adviser will also check that courses are spread out evenly over the two years.
Accepting the clash :
In some cases, the student may benefit from pedagogical alternatives when there is a clash of course and thus not have to attend the class in question.
If the student cannot attend the class, s/he must obtain the prior consent of the teacher.
Information on alternative pedagogical arrangements, if such arrangements exist, is available in every detailed course description (above).

Useful information is available in every detailed course description (above). The student must obtain the prior consent of the conseiller aux études (course adviser) for the choice of equivalent course.
