    I am currently studying As levels and by end of A2 I should have 3 a levels in Biology Chemistry and Maths.
    I am very interested in studying genetics in the near future. What courses would be best to take if I want to go into the genetic field as a post graduate.

    Anything in the life sciences really: biology, biochem, molecular biology, genetics etc. If you're unsure about your exact interests start with something general like biology or biochem.

    Most universities offer their biology degrees in such way that the first year allows you to sample everything across the broad couch of biology. You can then specialise either by picking the relevant modules or opting for a specialist degree pathway (e.g. switching from biology to molecular biology).

    If you want to go into genetics, then go for courses/modules heavy in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, etc.
