    My last ever undergrad QMUL lecture was about flies mating and how to turn flies gay... So I guess it ended with a 'bang' literally.

    It was a neuroscience lecture on the brain programming of sexual behaviour.

    Scientists favourite model for genetics are fruit flies for many reasons. I.e. because it's so easy to knock/insert genes into them these days and because we like taking vengence out on flies. :evil:

    (but at GCSE age, surely you must have some sort of vague inkling as to which field you want to go into... e.g. arts, business, sciences, etc

    Yeah you should. I mean there are many opportunities. Just be wise while choosing what to apply for because you will spend at least three years studying it. Plus, you are doing your GCSEs so you have plenty of time to make a decision.

    Biomedical Sciences covers all aspects of human biology in a broad sense, so if you wanted a back up course for veterinary medicine, I would really recommend doing plain biology instead.

    It's nice. People are always saying bad things about the area because Mile End really doesn't look like the prettiest place in the world, but I don't mind it. It's urban london. I like that there's cheap food places everywhere. Once you get into the campus, it's very student friendly. We have lots of student coffee shops and large rooms for talking etc.

    As for students, there's a lot less white middle class students than what you would expect from places like UCL, which sorta suits me. It often feels like 80% of the students are asian, but I think it'd be much less if you do history. There's also a Turkish society there which you might enjoy
