How much time will I be spending studying compared to high school?

Here is brief outline of the number of hours spent during a week in classes and laboratories for a full-time first year B.Sc. Student:

Science Lectures and Labs: 20 to 21 hours
(Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Calculus)

Elective: 3 or 4 hours>

Total Contact Hours: >24 hours

Study Time: Contact Hours + more if needed = >24 hours

Total = 48 Hours

Being a science student takes up more time than most full-time jobs!!
