    Students will be more likely to be posting/reading the Plymouth University forum or the Biology, biochemistry and other life sciences forum

    Hi there,I was wondering how you’re finding biology with foundation year at Plymouth? I’m thinking of applying for it next year but I fear there will be no one my age (17) and in the same boat as me as I do hope to progress to the biological Sciences degree afterwards. I would like your honest opinion

    I'm in my first semester and the course is going well so far. I'm currently doing a maths(it's very much like GCSE), chemistry and biology module. But I would assume that it would get harder in the second semester. Assignments are the thing that I find hard as I tend to go off topic and ramble on but I'm hoping to improve throughout this year. They do provide study skills lectures which can be quite helpful and lecturers are always there if you need help with anything. In each semester, you have to do two compulsory modules. In the first semester, you can choose the third one by doing chemistry or physics. In the second semester, you can pick again from another set of chemistry, physics or a maths module

    In this course, there are people of many ages and your age shouldn't stop you from wanting to do a degree. I heard that there are 17 year olds who do study at university as well and I'm sure you will be fine.
    Hope this helps.
