Should I read up on chemistry/maths before starting my biology course as bath?

    At A level, I did not study either chemistry or maths. Luckily, I could still apply for the Biology C100 course at Bath and was offered a place on the course. However, when I went on applicant days, it was made clear that the course is quite mathematics and chemistry heavy.

    I was wondering if anyone else has done this course or a similar course without studying maths or chemsitry, or both, and what they did in that situation? Did you read over the chemistry A level text books? Are there any books you could recommend to help me (mainly focused on chemsistry)? I just don't want to get into my first lecture at university and already be way out of my depth lol XD

    Don't worry about reading up on stuff before getting to uni. Enjoy your summer. You'll get whatever teaching and help you need at uni. Biology isn't a maths or chem 'heavy' course.
