I'm a biochemistry graduate, and I remember that I didn't really need to revise anything to prepare for university. You won't be dropped in the deep end, first year wasn't that big of a step up from how difficult A levels were. It is way more important not to burn out before starting, as the workload will be the biggest challenge, not the complexity of the material. My advice is to relax and be comfortable with the idea of moving away for the first time, being calm and minimising stress is the best way to prepare in my opinion.

No problem. I found first year challenging but enjoyable. Learning new stuff was always fun, but there is a lot to learn, and a lot of assignments like lab reports, tests, essays, that kind of thing. I didn't have much difficulty understanding the content, it's just a case of memorising a lot of stuff, but that's just biology for you. I always procrastinated which made it harder than it needed to be, but if you work consistently, don't put off work until the last minute, and never be afraid of asking questions you should be fine.

Hi there,

I hope you're well

If you want to chat to a current student studying Biomed about what they did to prepare for their first year, I'd recommend you follow the link below - where you can chat to some of our current students about that they did!
https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/chat/ > It looks like Calum studies biomed

Hope that's helpful!
