    I go to The University of Bradford. I really enjoy the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science course here, it's very difficult but it's accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council, so it's a LOT easier to become a Registered Biomedical Scientist when you graduate.

    I highly recommend that you only study BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science at a University that is IBMS Accredited if you are thinking of becoming a Biomedical Scientist.

    List of Universities that Offer IBMS Accredited Biomedical Science Undergraduate Degrees:

    The Robert Gordon University
    Bangor University
    University of Bedfordshire
    Queen’s University Belfast
    Aston University
    University of Bradford
    University of Brighton
    University of the West of England
    University of Abertay Dundee
    University of Essex
    Glasgow Caledonian University
    University of Strathclyde
    The University of Greenwich
    University of Hertfordshire
    University of Hull
    Keele University
    University of Kent at Canterbury
    Kingston University
    University of Lancaster
    De Montfort University
    Anglia Ruskin University
    Cardiff Metropolitan University
    University Chester
    Coventry University
    University of Lincoln
    Liverpool John Moores University
    University of East London
    London Metropolitan University
    Middlesex University
    Queen Mary, University of London
    University of Roehampton
    University of London, St George’s,
    University of Westminster
    Manchester Metropolitan
    Teesside University
    Northumbria University
    Nottingham Trent University
    Oxford Brookes University
    University of the West of Scotland
    University of Portsmouth
    University of Central Lancashire
    University of Plymouth
    University of Reading
    University of Salford
    Sheffield Hallam University
    Staffordshire University
    University of Sunderland
    University of Surrey
    York St. John University
    Ulster University
    University of Wolverhampton

    Because Russell Groups focus on academic/research rather than actually getting a job

    I really enjoy it personally. With any A Level, work load will increase - you won't avoid that. Also, the choices you make on these applications can be changed on results day very easily! So if you write something and later feel you don't wanna do that subject, it is fine.

    I don't really get on with how my school teaches it but I do really enjoy it. It is a step up, the exam mark schemes are a tad specific and there's a lot to it. But it is different, fun and I enjoy being in a lab.

    I would like to know aswell, I want to take Biology, Chemistry and Physics as my 3 A Levels because i'm only interested in Science, However people are saying that it will be to difficult, at GCSE i am an A/A* Student and want to know if this is a good idea or if i should just take Biology, Chemistry and something like History - which i also enjoy; when i'm older i want to get into a science related field like Biomedical science, healthcare or (preferably) medicine.
    I'm currently taking that combination (first year) and i love it! If you're good at maths physics is going to be very good to you (in my opinion it is the easiest). Chemistry is challenging but with enough revision I believe any one could keep up with it. Biology is the only one i'm currently struggling with simply because of the work load. I would say don't take physics is you don't like maths. Don't take chemistry if you don't do the research because a lot of is things you may have never heard of. Don't take biology if you know you're not a motivated person or you don't love the subject because its tough and requires the most revision and if you don't enjoy it you're going to hate the next 2 years.

    Yes, the Institute of Biomedical Science requires people to have a solid knowledge of Chemistry and Maths. I would highly recommend that if you study an IBMS accredited degree that you ensure you understand biochemistry and laboratory mathematics.

    This book has all the mathematics someone would need on a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science accredited by the IBMS.

    Could you please help me with this bio question?

    Explain why flurescent microscopy has a better resolution than light microscopy? (2) - application question on the OCR textbook.

    Here is what I think the answer is:
    Flurescent microscopy involves attaching flurescent tags to antibodies which attach to specific structures. Whereas light microscopy involves staining structures in a less specific way hence why is has a low resolution.

    Or

    Light microscopy has a low resolution due to the large wavelength of light and diffraction limit. Whereas flurescent microscopy has a greater resolution due to reflecting only light that follow the focal plane
