    I know its really confusing. Both are good careers and my interests aren't ever specific. For example I did geography, business in gcse's but then picked history in a-level. I did tipple science at gcse but I'm doing maths and further maths at a-levels I dont really ever have a preference. Therefore I consider a lot to not make a mistake. So it's either that side or the other. However I've kind of crossed out pharmacology. I don't really mind doing anything biotech, biochem, pharmacy, chem eng.
    Well if you like maths, and enjoy problem solving then chemical engineering is certainly the way to go! I think the subjects you choose at GCSE/ A-level shouldn't necessarily dictate what you do at uni as long as you meet the requirements.

    And you can, in most cases, specialise in biotechnology during a Chemical Engineering degree. I have to say though, biotech was one of my least favourite modules.

    Quite sad if that's the case, it'll only result in a dissatisfying career.
    But I would've expected that to be medicine or dentistry.
    People tend to assume the next best thing after medicine/dentistry is pharmacy or engineering which appeals to more as the entry requirements are much lower.

    What is biotechnology about?

    Why is it between pharmacy and chemeng? Chemeng is drastically different from pharmacy or pharmacology, and I can't see how you narrowed it down to those three careers based on your interests?

    Hi,
    It's acctully chem, chem eng or biochem I dont want to do pharmacy or pharmacology anymore. The reason why though is because I love maths, chem and human biology.
