So, I got my grades back last week for first year and didn't too very well overall.
I also failed one exam and one piece of coursework too which I will have to retake over the next few weeks.
However, my first year counts for nothing towards my degree.
I was just wondering, when applying for a masters, will the universities look at my individual grades, even if I have a 2:1/1st at the end of my degree as many just say you should have a 2:1 etc.
First year grades probably aren't considered as important as the final grade but I think they probably do look for consistence in grades. Like consistently good grades throughout. Especially if there's a lot of competition.

Depends on when you apply. If you're applying while still in 3rd year then, of course, they'll only see your 1st/2nd year grades. That doesn't mean that they'll outright reject you unless your 2nd year grades are appalling. A good PS/references can offset bad 1st year grades.
