    Hi, i'm thinking about biochemistry or chemistry. Does biochemistry actually contain chemistry (i.e will I be doing chemistry problems or biology problems?)

    Is biochemistry completely qualitative, or slightly quantitative? What do exams consist of - essays or problems?


    As the name says, Biochemistry deals with the chemistry of the human body - you'll get more than a fair share of chemistry, just that it is more focused on the chemistry of life (more organic than anorganic, DNA, protein synthesis etc.).
