I did my undergrad, and master at McGill but in microbio. I'll try to guide as best as I can.

First, you should have been assign an academic advisor. Seek help from him if you have any question.

Are you coming from the CEGEP system or are from outside the province of Quebec.

People that come from the CEGEP system do a 3 year program. People outside the province do a a freshman year program before the 3 year program.

From the website, the course you have to select is straight foward. At McGill, a normal semester load is 15 credits and which equals to 5 3-credit courses. The U1 list is for people coming from the CEGEP system. there 9 course that are required so have to register to these course in your first year. the 10th course you choose between linear algebra or algebra 2.

check the calendar for more information on the couse and the pre-req. in the calendar

You should also check the course schedule for each semester so you can make your schedule without any conflict

Minerva is a fairly easy system to use. Mcgill has a tutorial for it on its webpage

Hope this help.
