St Andrews: AAB
They're most of the decent ones (minus the ones i've forgotten), the grades may be off a bit; i can't be bothered to look up exact grades, you can do that!
Bath is BioNatSci and is AAA, it's a pretty good course from what i know. Sheffield is also very good for biology, it's AAB i believe. The courses themselves will be different but for actual biology i would say that Sheffield is a better choice; Bath you will have to do more physics, maths, chemistry than you may want to do. Hmm, just checked the Bath website ant they do offer a biology bsc, not sure whether this was the case last year, anyway, it's ABB and worse than Sheffield in my opinion.
If you think you can get A*AA then BioNatSci at Cambridge may be an idea. Otherwise i would start with Oxford then choose the next 4 courses that interest you the most; unless you're applying this year, Oxbridge applications are closed.
Any questions you have about biology, uni, ucl or london just ask!Last edited by orca92; 30-12-2010 at 15:06. Reason: adding info

Sheffield is better for biology, but you should definitely make your choice based on the course content because these two are quite different. BSc Biology at Sheffield is about ecology, conservation, animals, and plants whereas BSc Biology at Bath has a significantly higher amount of modules on molecular biosciences (biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology).
