Hey guys,

With the deadline for UCAS applications looming , I'm well into my personal statement, but I can't seem to choose between biology or biochemistry!

I'm doing biology, chemistry and maths for A2. I love organic chemistry and the sort of biological molecule side of things. I'm also really keen on marine biology too...

Any suggestions?

Thanks !

If you have a few interests within biology, then I'd advise doing a Biology degree rather than a Biochemistry one. I was stuck between Biology and Zoology and ended up going with the former as it allows you to explore different areas, or focus on a certain area and touch upon other areas. I've ended up picking a lot of zoology modules, but then I've also been able to branch away from that if I want. A lot of universities that offer both would allow you to switch after the first year anyway, so if you decided to go with Biology but ended up picking mostly Biochem modules, you could probably swap

Some good advice above. Bear in mind that biochem degrees can include up to 50% pure chem in the first and second years and even the third year so make sure you're very clear on what the different course structures are before choosing.
