    i'm another potential biochemistry applicant wondering where to apply.
    predicted 5As at AS in chemistry, maths, further maths, biology and archaeology. dropping archaeology and currently predicted A*A*A*A at A2
    any reccomendations?
    Oxford, Imperial, UCL, Sheffield and York are probably the best for biochem. Natural Sciences (biological) at Cambridge is also a good option.

    I'm intrigued - no love for Cardiff! But Cardiff Biochemistry has two Nobel Prize winners on its staff, which is more than any other UK university to the best of my knowledge.

    Hey, I'm looking for some helpful advice.
    I'm still undecided about my choices for September, I'm trying to choose between
    Biological Sciences at Leeds (offer ABB)
    Biochemistry at Nottingham (ABB)
    or Biochemistry at Exeter (BBB)
    Thankfully I have until the 7th of June to decide. Any thoughts would be really appreciated!

    How did you manage to get an offer of BBB for Exeter?

    Ide firm either Nottingham or Leeds depending on which you liked more when visiting, and defiantly insure Exeter.

    Leeds is bigger then Nottingham if you care about size, and i think Nottingham generally has a better reputation.

    I read on push.co.uk that Exeter is just full of rich kids who didnt get into an Oxbridge university, not sure if its true or not.

    Not sure what the average grades are but when I went to the interview last year they told everyone that their offers will definitely be AAB.

    What did they win their Nobel Prizes for?

    Errr ... Biochemistry (well, okay, pedantically speaking, the Nobel Prizes for Medicine and Chemistry, but they were for biochemical research) - Sir Martin Evans (stem cell research) and Prof Robert Huber.

    Biochemistry or Medical Biochemistry?
    Medical Biochemistry. In the end I accepted an offer for the same subject at Royal Holloway, same grades. Leicester is my back up though

    Is it worth to apply to Leicester? and how about Edinburgh?
    Definitely never knew TSR told you you had replies! My bad. Leicester is a good uni and definitely worth applying for, although in the end I firmed my offer for Medical Biochemistry at Royal Holloway - the course is flexible so you can pick your own modules . I've never looked at Edinburgh, I live in Winchester so it's miiiiiiiiiiles away! What did you go for in the end?
