    So this is my final year in sixth form, and I think I've decided that I'm going to apply for Glasgow to study genetics, can anyone tell me what it's like studying biology in the first year? I know that all life science degrees are the same at Glasgow for the first year, I would just like to know what sort of things you learn in the first year.

    I don't study biology, but with any course at Glasgow uni you can see what is in the syllabus, so for first year biology you take bio 1a and 1b, taken in the first and second semester respectively.

    Here are the links for those classes:

    There is sometimes more information in the spec document at the top of the page.
