    Hey guys, I've been looking into these two choices and wanted to know the similarities and differences. Is one considered better than the other? What could I do with these degrees in terms of career? What experience to wrote in personal statement?

    As far as I know, biological sciences would have aspects of all of biology (animals, plants, ecology etc), whereas biomedical science is more human biology.
    In terms of career, biomedical science could lead to things like healthcare and drug research. Not so sure about biological sciences.

    I dont think one is seen as better than the other, but I know biomedical science is sometimes a fifth option for medicine applicants.
