I forget what I learned in biology class but I will be getting a biology degree

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
I took biology last year and got excellent grades. I enjoyed the class and understood the material but I know that I have already forgotten most of what I learned. Since I am going to university for biology, should I reteach myself or will they teach what I need to know?

Introductory courses assume zero to little knowledge. You can teach yourself if you'd like but you'll be taught what you need to know over the duration of the course.

Lol, you want to pursue a bio degree but you don't remember anything in high school bio? How does that even make sense? Do cardiac surgeons just forget everything they learned in med school and just wing an 18 hour operation?

I remember some things but I forget small details. Don't worry, I do not want to become a doctor or surgeon. I was just not sure how much prior knowledge we are expected to have for university. In high school, if you don't remember every detail from grade 11 biology, you are fine because you learn everything you need in grade 12.
