    Hi there, I studied Zoology for my undergrad and really enjoyed it. It depends on where you study as to what your years will be like. I went to Glasgow Uni and in my first year I did Chemistry, Biology and Environmental science. Second year I did 11 modules consisting of things like Forensics, Animal Diversity, Infection and Immunity, Neuroscience and Behaviour, Bioengineering and Global Change, Immunology etc. In third year I finally specialised into Zoology and we studied Invertebrates, Vertebrates, Experimental Design, Pollution Ecology, Parasites, Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems and Statistics. In my fourth year we chose modules and I took Behavioural Ecology, Evolution Pattern and Process, Bioethics and Tropical Ecology; as well as my dissertation.

    I found third year much more difficult than fourth year, but fourth year had much more work. If you get the option to go to stats classes GO!! I thought I could get away without going to them but it does hinder you in your dissertation and any further degrees!

    Past papers are a god send for studying for essay questions since sometimes there is a theme as to what they might as you in your exam. Make the most of field trips as I find you learn so much on them it is easier to remember facts you learn on field trips than reading through books. Read papers from journals and get into the habit of doing it; you'll need to read many and you need to figure out which ones will be useful to your task and which ones will not. Any other questions feel free to ask
