I was wondering if anyone could say where the best places to do Natural Sciences are?
I want to do Maths and Biology, preferably Biology that includes DNA and small things and doesn't go into plants and food webs - but I haven't done any Chemistry. Other than that, I'm not entirely sure- kinda interested in Earth Sciences, possibly Chemistry (intend to do an A/AS level in that next year), archaeology, geology etc stuff (but i've done no geography/history).
On the whole, I've done entirely the wrong subjects (English, French, German, Psychology), with only two relevant subjects (Maths, Biology) - I'm doing the International Baccalaureate. Will this lack of science-y subjects be a big problem?
I've applied to Durham, UEA (offer: 32 points), Reading (32), Bath, Birmingham and Lancaster (33).
(and if you think another uni would be better, tell me, coz i can always just reapply again, right?)
Thanks for your time!

Warwick's biology course specialises in 'small stuff', big microbiology place, and medical biology. They do like you to have chemistry though, typical offer is ABB.
Or theres the Cambridge nat sci course, for the biological sciences side, you'd want biology, chem and maths at Alevel probably. They'd almost certainly want chem.
I applied for straight bio at 6 places, and I think that 5 of them wanted me to have done chemistry - the 6th wanted it to at least AS level.
Hope this is of some help - obviously you've got three offers already, so you're doing well, best of luck with the rest!
