              (a) all units in Table 9.2.6(43D) (Marine Biology major sequence core units)—54 points

              and

              (b) one pair of units from Group A in Table 9.2.6(43E) (Marine Biology major sequence options)—12 points

              and

              (c) one pair of units from Group B in Table 9.2.6(43E) (Marine Biology major sequence options)—12 points.
