The best school subjects for preparation for the BMLSc are Chemistry, Biology and at least one Mathematics subject at NCEA level 3. Medical Laboratory Scientists need to be good communicators so English is also an important subject.

Chemistry: You need a good background in Chemistry so you should have studied at least 20 credits from NCEA Level 3 Chemistry and achieved at least 14 credits, or passed Bursary Chemistry. If you have achieved fewer credits and/or at a lower level you should consider taking 123.103 Introductory Chemistry which is offered extramurally through Massey over the Summer months before your first year of full time study. http://study.massey.ac.nz/paper.asp?paper_code=123103&submit=GO%21

Biology: You should have studied at least 20 credits from NCEA Level 3 Biology and achieved at least 14, or passed Bursary Biology. If you have achieved fewer credits and/or at a lower level then you should consider taking 162.103 Introductory Biology offered extramurally through Massey over the Summer months before your first year of full time study. http://study.massey.ac.nz/paper.asp?paper_code=162103&submit=GO%21

Mathematics: A school mathematics background of Year 12 (NCEA Level 2) is useful preparation for the statistics paper.

English: The University requirements for English proficiency can be found at http://www.massey.ac.nz/massey/students/enrol/eligible/eligible_home.cfm In addition, Medical Laboratory Scientists need to be fluent in spoken English in order to communicate with other laboratory staff, nurses, doctors and patients. Many laboratories now interview students during their third year of study before they will accept them for placement in the fourth year.
