I have recently been deciding what Universities to go and over the last few weeks have come up with this:

Name of University: University of Bath
Name of course: Biology (with Professional Placement)
Course code: C111
Duration: 4 years
Typical Offer: AAB

Name of University: University of Bristol
Name of course: Biology
Course code: C100
Duration: 3 years
Typical Offer: AAB

Name of University: University of Surrey
Name of course: Biological Sciences (with Professional Placement)
Course code: 7C54
Duration: 4 years
Typical Offer: ABB

Name of University: University of Kent
Name of course: Biology with a Sandwich Year
Course code: C105
Duration: 4 years
Typical Offer: ABB

Name of University: University of Reading
Name of course: Biological Sciences
Course code: C100
Duration: 3 years
Typical Offer:BBB/ABC for applicants with Biology and one other science subject at A level, both at minimum grade B.

Do you think my choices are reasonable? Should I aim higher or lower?

Context:
GCSEs: 5A*s and 6As
Predicted Results AS: 4As (Biology, Chemistry, Economics and History).

Assuming you get at least two A's at AS-level, including Biology and Chemistry, then you would probably benefit from considering at least one AAA/A*AA choice - providing that you actually like that uni/course.

Chill out. Most universities hype about their grade requirements and typical offers for the sake of their academic stature.

Hello,
I have to decide what courses i want to study for university but I'm really unsure of what i want to do. Currently I'm studying biology, mathematics, economics and business all at as level.
I'd like to study biology at university, preferably course C100, however whenever i mention i want to study pure biology everyone grimaces and says its not a good idea because its too 'unspecialised'. Could someone please give me some advice on this course, or any other courses like it that were enjoyable to study at university. I also would like to know if not studying chemistry at as level will impair my chances of getting an offer from universities!
I'm hoping to get A*AA -AAB at a level (i know this is a wide range but i haven't received my AS grades yet so i don't know what to expect)! If anyone could let me know what unis they applied to and what grades they got that would be great!
thanks for your help ( i know it's a lot of questions but I'm freaking out as everyone seems to have written their personal statement and i haven't even chosen a course)
