It says BSc on both but one is one year and another one is two. Are there any actual differences?

An intercalated award is an additional undergraduate degree (BSc or BA) or master's level programme that you complete in an intensive year away from your normal medical, dental or veterinary studies.

An intercalated degree gives you an opportunity to get involved in research and academia which is sometimes difficult to do in your medical course. The skills acquired can be of great importance in the future

I see. So the year long one is iBSc = the intercalated award that is in all other med schools (whether optional or not in them) and the two year is an actual BSc degree, unique to Glasgow?

Yeah
Intercalation actually gives you a chance to study an area of medicine you’re passionate about or to explore a new passion. For some medical schools, this is compulsory, but for many others it is optional. You can still do it after your degree study.
