Basically, I've just finished my second year and my average is 72. I've also chosen to switch to the MBiol qualification i.e. the integrated masters, meaning I will graduate with one masters degree rather than a BSc and then applying to go on and do an MSc. I'm wondering if this is the right decision for a number of reasons:
As I'm doing reasonably well at the moment, I'm wondering if it would be better to do just the BSc and potentially (I know theres a lot to go yet!!) graduate with a 1st in a BSc, rather than do the 4th year and graduate with a 2:1 in a Masters? Basically, I'm worried the Masters will be too hard and pull my average down and then graduate with a less good degree.
To answer my question, I'm just wondering if anyone else has done an MBiol and how much harder the fourth year is and just generally give me some more information about it?

You'll be fine if you're doing ok now and continue to work hard. While a first is great a 2.1 is also enough for most jobs or PhDs.
