Undergraduate Biomedical science extended literature reviewWatch
Instead of a final year project report, I've been told I might be doing an extended literature review.
The problem is that I have no idea what that is so I am so so nervous.
Does anyone know?

You will do a literature search, find relevant and recent papers, discuss the research that's already been published, highlighting areas for ongoing research and any gaps you might attempt to bridge through research of your own.
It's very common for universities to have students write a literature review as part of their final year project because it can often be a good indicator of how your research and write up will go. Because of covid restrictions many stem students are struggling to get into the lab, so lots of universities are requesting students do an extented literature project to make up for lack of research.
I suggest searching for some literature reviews that are relevant to your specialism. That will give you a good idea of what will be expected of you.
