    Same I dont know yet if I will want to do a masters after undergrad... yet. The whole biology is not quantative at all thing scares me. I like Math. I want to do atleast some modules in it -_-
    things change, before my a levels i wasnt really keen on biology and in my first year of gcses i hated it. However as my alevels went on i got really into it by reading dawkins etc and so on.
    its a matter of maturing, my bio teacher only got really into bio at university (even though he went to cambridge) at school all he wanted to do was play football. He then went on to have a very successful research career at kings and UCL.So what im saying is that some people mature before others. Its quite unfair to have to pick what we want to do for the rest of our lives some are ready some are not. Go for bio and if you want change you always can.

    oh and you can always beg to take other modules and they will probably let you .

    Trust me, you won't be leaving maths behind, because it's so hard to quantify they come up with ridiculous formulas to cope. Say hello to three years that'll teach you to hate statistics.

    hi, really quick question about the open day at ucl if anyone's been to one
    what did people wear? is it really formal (so suits) or just casual? my email said i had an offer but a condition of that was i attended the open day, so i don't have an assessment or anything.
    please help - it's tomorrow!

    I'm confused because it says I have a conditional offer of ABB for Leeds when my predicted grades are BBB
    I thought they would either reject me or give me my slightly lower grade with the access scheme

    It means if you firm it, then you have to get ABB on results day.

    sometimes, but you really have to beg( in your last year only 75% has to be bio). You could also attend the maths lectures although it wont count towards your degree.

    It depends, some biological science courses have the same course code and course structure of general biology, but others are more medical based so you need to check the structures.

    I've got 4/5 of my offers, just waiting on Reading now but I'm sure most of the courses I applied to weren't as competitive as everyone else's and I hope everyone gets their first choice.
    I'm amazed that Leeds has given me an offer so fast because I don't even meet what they're asking, but it certainly gives me motivation to try get an A
    I'm going to be upset if I don't get in because Leeds is my top choice...
