    Haha, I fell the same way. I find botany a bit too dry for my tastes. But if tell botanists that i prefer zoology, they get pretty tetchy about it

    There are actually no universities that offer botany courses in the UK any more.

    There are a few that offer plant sciences - East Anglia, Nottingham, Manchester and Sheffield
    Aber offers Plant Biology

    Other than that I think Cambridge Birmingham offer a plant specialism within Biology but it's not really the same.

    ouhhhh
    I don't live in the UK so I didnt know that, I'm sorry. In India people who dont make the cut-off for zoology usually have to go for botany so that creates a lot of friction because the zoologists tend to sort of 'look down' on the botanists.

    Its OK its only a recent development as of 2012 My Uni was the last to offer it.

    I feel that is best to learn some of both as both are equally important

    Zoology. It's something I enjoy learning.
    Plants are the only reason I dislike doing A-level biology. Just don't really find them interesting. Which is a shame, as a lot of the content in my bio exams was on plants.
