    I have been offered a place at Bristol for Biochemistry with Molecular Biology and Biotehnology.

    I have also been offered Biological Sciences with a year in industry at Exeter.

    Bristol is considered a more 'prestigious' uni but Exeter is up and coming. I feel biology would give me more of an idea of what particular area of biology I want to go into after uni, however biochemistry sets me up for all the chemical and laboratory work I would undoubtedly be doing.

    I already live on Bristol, so the idea of staying here is kinda boring but not a deal breaker.

    I feel biochemistry is also slightly more impressive, although I feel I could more easily get a first in biology.

    What's your thoughts on which I should choose?

    Bear in mind you can do Biochemistry at Exeter...although they dont explicitly offer it with a year in industry, you can do industry placements with it as far as I am aware (im a medical science student so I do some Bioscience modules). If you have any questions about the course, feel free to PM or quote this message and im happy to answer.
