    Great I have a biochemistry offer too, but my college is Exeter. So tell me what is the thing that made you select biochemistry over the other courses?

    At first, I was confused between biomedical sciences and biochemistry and to some extent medicine, but my interests were more in metabolic reactions in all living things not just the human body so I chose biochemistry and hopefully this may help me become a researcher and scientist.

    What is that?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It's a bridging course (I think a bit like a top-up or refresher for maths and science to get everyone back to scratch before term starts) that they're offering to offer-holders from certain science courses.

    I don't know, sorry! This is organised by the MPSL department, I don't know if there's an equivalent thing for PPE. I think the point of it is to make sure that science students haven't forgotten basic stuff over the break (which I think would probably be less of an issue for the humanities) but if there is one and you qualify, I'm sure they'll let you know. I was emailed about it.
