    Heya all,

    For the BSc biology course, how intense is the start of the course? I'm on a gap year and am revising my A-Level bio material but am worried about falling behind at an early stage.

    Many thanks

    You will be fine, especially at the start first year has overlap with A levels, (similar topics, just more in depth) which really helps you to ease in. There are also no winter exams so you have plenty of time to get used to the course too before you are tested.

    Most people on the course found the step from A-level to university fine, it's they step up to second year you have to watch for!
